First Fanatec GT2 European Series champions crowned in London

Attended by the stars of international GT Racing and representatives from a wide variety of SRO series, the event rewarded last year's global and European champions during a gala evening at The Brewery London. With the venue situated at the heart of the city and in sight of the Barbican, London's foremost example of post-war brutalist architecture, it provided a suitably spectacular location at which to honour the stars of 2021.

For the first time, the Fanatec GT2 European Series was celebrated during the awards, which attracted world-class brands such as Audi, Brabham, Ferrari, KTM, Lamborghini and Porsche in its maiden season of competition.

After an intense first year of racing, it was Mark Patterson and Anders Fjordbach in the High Class Racing Audi that took the Pro-Am title ahead of Peter Guelinckx and Bert Longin in the PK Carsport Audi. Third in class, Aurelijus Rusteika and Michael Vergers (Speed Factory Racing Porsche) were also in London to mark their achievement.

Am Cup champion, Christoph Ulrich (Sportec Mototsport KTM) stepped up to receive his championship silverware on the night, whilst Klaus Angerhofer – third in the Am title fight alongside Hubert Trunkenpolz in the True Racing KTM – joined the celebrations at The Brewery.

Multiple Le Mans 24 Hours winner and sportscar champion David Brabham, who piloted the Brabham BT63 GT2 Concept car on its series debut at Circuit Paul Ricard, was also in attendance.

The 2022 Fanatec GT2 European Series embarks on its second season at Imola, Italy, 1-3 April.
