    Two great race wins for Glew and ***g in the Ebor GT team Maserati Gran Turismo MC GT4 as they win both races in the GT4 European Series Northern Cup round at Zandvoort this weekend: https://north.gt4series.com/

    A fantastic weekend for Maserati, with the Scuderia Villorba Corse car driven by Dall'Antonia and Fascicolo also winning the AM class in race 2 (P9 overall).

    ... Oh - forgot to mention that Manuela Gostner (Scuderia Villorba Corse, Gran Turismo MC GT4) won the AM class in race 1 on Saturday. Sorry.

    A big congrats to Jeff Courtney who just won the GTSA class in the 2018 Pirelli World Challenge championship. He drove his Gran Turismo MC GT4 to two class wins this year, including in yesterday's race at Watkins Glen, plus several podium finishes. A fantastic achievement in a very competitive GTS series.

    It seems the Gran Turismo MC GT4 has more or less been retired from European racing.

    As far as I know, the only car entered in any championship in Europe this year is the Euroracing Scandinavia car driven by Niklas Lilja and Kari Mäkinen in the SRO-associated GT4 Scandinavia series. Anyone knows about other entries?

    As far as I know, also only one team in North America is racing a Maserati in 2019; the Motorsports USA car driven by Michael McAleenan and Jerold Lowe. They did great in the GT4/SprintX races at Portland International Raceway last weekend, getting two podiums in the Western AM class. Cheers!

    I have just been told in another forum that Courtney also raced the MC GT4 at the Watkins Glen round of the GT4 America series earlier this month, placing it P1 in the AM class (and a very impressive P3 overall) in race 2, and P2 in the AM class in race 1. Wow!

    It is increasingly obvious that future books about the Gran Turismo's long racing career (the MC GT4 was launched in 2009) must devote a good chunk of their pages to racing in North America.

    Jeff Courtney just added a bit more to the racing history of the Gran Turismo MC GT4. Two podiums (P2 on Sunday, P3 on Saturday) in the GT4 Sprint AM class in the last round of the 2019 USA GT4 Championship held in Las Vegas this weekend.
