Tommi Gore and Senna Summerbell GT4 Germany Championship
Tommi Gore and Senna Summerbell will be competing in the ADAC GT4 Germany Championship in 2024. The competition will start on April 28 at Oschersleben and subsequent rounds will be held at other tracks with the final round taking place on October 20 at Hockenheim Ring.
Gore and Summerbell will be teaming up to Co-pilot an Audi R8 under the SAPE motorsports team.
“Senna Summerbell and I will be racing an Audi R8 under the SAPE motorsports team. There will be a driver swap at the mandatory pit stop in each race where either of us will swap into the car and complete the race,” Gore explained.
Tommi who recently competed in Formula 4, competed against the SAPE Motorsport Formula 4 team, he explained that they recognised his abilities and offered him this opportunity to consider.
“After racing against the SAPE Motorsport team in Formula 4 they recognised how quickly I adapted to the single seater and offered me a drive for the 2024 season. They also mentioned that they had an Audi R8 GT4 car that they wanted to campaign for next year if I was interested. I didn’t see as much marketing potential in Formula 4 than in GT4 racing which was a big reason for the campaign being in the ADAC German GT4 Championship, a support series to the GT Masters Championship, one of the most followed racing series in Europe. With our races having over 600,000 spectators at these tracks over the season there will be a lot of new exposure for us and our brands along for the season,” Gore said.
Tommi and Senna will be working hard over the first quarter of next year to prepare for the competition which awaits them in Germany.
“We will be doing a lot of simulator work, preparing for the tracks and learning the car on the simulator to help make the transition as seamless as possible.”
“Our goal is to be competitive throughout the season. We are going against guys in their third or even fourth year in these cars, so to be able to enter with a new team to the championship and with neither of us having experience in GT racing it will be a great chance to show what we really have to offer,” Gore said.
Tommi explained that the ultimate goal is to continue representing Jamaica well on the international stage.
“It will be an amazing experience for sure. I really want to maximize the opportunity and showcase what Jamaica has to offer on an international level and show that we are a force to be reckoned with in motorsport. We also aim to market the brands onboard to a completely new market; I would be extremely happy to be able to make an impact in their business and provide them value through motorsport. This would hopefully open new doors locally, regionally and internationally for other drivers pursuing similar careers,” Tommi said.
There is no doubt Tommi and Senna will perform well. Their ability to transition and take advantage of new circumstances is unmatched. Tommi in the last year competed and made statement performances in the United Kingdom at the Radical Cup UK at Donnington Park and later at his F4 debut in Hungary. Meanwhile, Senna currently holds the track lap record at Dover Raceway and has since raced a Radical in Canada.
