Saudi Racer Reema Juffali Excited to Participate in First Full GT3 Series Season


Saudi female racing star Reema Juffali is looking forward to competing in her first entire season in a GT3 series when she lines up in this weekend’s International GT Open Championship in Portugal.

Juffali will again be part of the SPS Automotive Performance team for the season-opening race in Estoril – her first competitive outing since finishing an impressive second place in the GT3-AM class at this year’s Dubai 24 Hours race in January.

She will alternate at the wheel of the Mercedes-AMG GT3 car #18 with British team-mate Adam Christodoulou, an experienced GT3 driver and winner of the 2016 Nürburgring 24 Hours.

Juffali, the official race ambassador for the inaugural F1 Saudi Arabia race in 2021, said: “It’s going to be great being behind the wheel again with SPS Automotive Performance this weekend in Estoril for the opening round of the GT Open Championship. It’s been a couple of months since my second-place finish at the Dubai 24 Hours earlier this year, one of my proudest achievements.”

With a strong field confirmed for the competition, Juffali embraces the challenge on the track by putting her skills and abilities to the test in GT racing and is raring to go.

She added: “GT racing is something that I’m excited about, and like every race that I have taken part in, every competition will provide challenges and opportunities to learn, and the International GT Open Championship will be no different. I know that I need to be at the top of my game as there’s some strong competition, but I’m excited to get started.”

SPS Automotive Performance, winners of the International GT Open 2018 Pro-Am Championship, will also field another Mercedes-AMG GT3 with Swiss duo – Dexter Müller and Yannick Mettler sharing driving duties of the #54 car

This year’s International GT Open consists of seven rounds with France (Paul Ricard), Belgium (Spa), Hungary (Hungaroring), Austria (Red Bull Ring), and Italy (Monza) hosting races before it concludes in Spain (Barcelona) in October.
