The new season sees an exciting relationship established with Mercedes-AMG Customer Racing in Affalterbach, Germany, and delivery of two new Mercedes-AMG GT3s due shortly.

With the constantly evolving travel situation, the team continues to review the domestic and European competition options, while finalising preparations for the dedicated testing programme.

New partnership

HH Shaikh Isa commented: “I am extremely pleased to confirm the new relationship for 2 Seas Motorsport with Mercedes-AMG as the first exciting stage of our 2021 plans.

Mercedes-AMG is at the top of its game in motorsport, and the AMG GT3 has been hugely successful across all competitions since its introduction. “At 2 Seas Motorsport, we are always looking to take on the next challenge and to learn from our experiences, and as a team, we have grown and developed hugely over the past 12 months, and I am confident we will continue to build and get stronger throughout this coming season.”
