While waiting for the official test sessions, which will kick off the 2022 GT World Challenge Europe season on the 7th and 8th of March at the Paul Ricard circuit (less than four weeks before the first event at Imola), the teams are already preparing for the upcoming events. Over the last few weeks, private test sessions have been taking place, both to work on the cars and to test potential recruits.

As for Team AKKA-ASP, renewal is still the order of the day as Jérôme Policand's team will field new crews in both the Sprint and Endurance series.

Among the new recruits is the young Brit Casper STEVENSON, who will celebrate his 19th birthday a week before the Brands Hatch round (30 April/1st May). Having raced in Karting then single-seaters, 3rd in the F4 British Championship in 2020 and title of best Rookie in the Euroformula Open F3, Casper gave Endurance racing a try a few weeks ago during the Abu Dhabi Gulf 12 Hours. At the wheel of a Mercedes-AMG GT3 Evo (team 2 Seas Motorsport) he got the fastest lap of the race and finished 3rd Pro-AM (4th overall).  Fast and precise in his driving, he particularly stood out during the practice sessions on the Navarra, Paul Ricard and Valencia circuits by matching the best laptimes.

This season, Casper Stevenson will join the team for the European series, in the Silver Sprint category, with an ‘in-house’ driver, a choice team member, the 2021 Endurance Cup Silver vice-champion Thomas DROUET (also reigning FFSA GT4 French Champion). They are already shaping up to be a duo that is fierce and combative…

Casper Stevenson will also take part in the Endurance series of the GT World Challenge Europe, still in Silver, but this time with a new recruit, Tommaso MOSCA (the third driver still needs to be decided).

Tommaso Mosca will be celebrating his 22nd birthday shortly after the opening round of the Endurance championship, on home ground in Italy (Imola). Having also raced Karts, the young Italian then chose to race in single-brand championships (Audi TT Cup, then Porsche Carrera Cup), before running two seasons, in 2020 and 2021, in the GT World Challenge Europe (Sprint and Endurance) in an Audi. His knowledge of the championship and of the tracks will definitely be a boon throughout the season.

As per usual, Team AKKA-ASP will have line-ups in several categories, including the PRO category. But we’ll still have to wait a bit longer before discovering the 2022 crews and programmes…
