Lionspeed GP goes to Mugello for first Round!

  • Racing team founded by Patrick Kolb and Jose Garcia set for its first race as fully independent operation
  • Lionspeed GP welcomes newcomer Dennis Bohn to its lineup
  • Lionspeed GP ready for first full 24H Series season after previous one-off entries

Bad Homburg, March 19, 2024 / PRESS RELEASE – After a winter filled with intense preparations, Lionspeed GP is ready to embark on its first full season in the Hankook 24H Series. The European season kicks off this weekend with the Hankook 12H Mugello, where the team will compete in the GT4 class.

The event at the exciting and challenging Tuscany circuit marks a significant milestone for Lionspeed GP, as it will be the first race operating as a fully independent GT racing team. The team is excited to embark on this new challenge, ready to kick off the season after a productive winter period.

Team co-founders Patrick Kolb (GER) and Jose Garcia (USA) will reunite with Daniel Miller (USA) aboard the No. 424 Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS CS while at the same time welcoming Dennis Bohn (GER) to the team. Dennis, the son of successful 24H Series driver Ralf Bohn, will be making his Creventic debut with Lionspeed. The link between Kolb and the Bohn family is not new in 24H Series. They notably took an overall podium teaming up in last year’s Hankook 24H Barcelona.

Garcia, Miller and Kolb also all took part in select 24H Series races in previous years, racing GT4 machinery at famous circuits like Sebring International Raceway, Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps and Autodromo Internacional do Algarve and scoring several class podiums along the way.

Patrick Kolb: “We are very excited about the first race of the European Creventic season. It’s not only the first race of the championship, but also the first event in which we as Lionspeed will operate fully independently in our new structure that was implemented over the winter break.  We’re happy to welcome back Jose and Dan on board for the full season as well as welcoming Dennis Bohn to the team.”

The twelve-hour race at the Mugello Circuit will be run in two segments. The first six and a half hours will be completed on Saturday, with the initial portion of the race finishing at 19:00 CET. The race then resumes after an overnight break on Sunday at 09:00, finishing at 14:30 after a further five and half hours of action. The full race, as well as qualifying on Friday, will be streamed live on the 24H Series YouTube channel.
