Mardenborough to replace Ordonez
Jann Mardenborough will replace Lucas Ordonez, as the GT Sport Motul Team RJN driver will miss the final round of the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup, as a result of a cycling accident in which the Spaniard broke his shoulder.
After consulting renowned sports injury specialist Dr. Xavier Mir – who has treated MotoGP riders Dani Pedrosa and Marc Marquez – it has been confirmed Ordonez will not be fit to drive in the Barcelona event.
Mardenborough, a former GT Academy winner, will race the Nissan GT-R NISMO GT3 alongside Alex Buncombe and Matt Parry. The 27-year-old British driver makes his return to Europe after racing this year in the Japanese Super GT championship for Team Impul.
GT Sport Motul Team RJN’s second car will also welcome a new face in Barcelona with young Scottish racer Colin Noble joining Ricardo Sanchez and Struan Moore.
