eGPX is Spa 24 Hours' winning team GPX Racing's new virtual squad.

In the wake of this title sealed in the face of prestigious opposition the management of the squad that triumphed in the 2019 24 Hours of Spa – in real life! – has decided to launch a virtual team under the name, eGPX.
To achieve his aim the Swiss driver, Louis Delétraz, came first in Barcelona and finished on the podium at the Nürburgring and Kyalami. He went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual with the team Rebellion Williams and the son of former F1 driver, Jean-Denis Delétraz, will be the eGPX ambassador to accompany the development of the new operation.
Pierre-Brice Mena: “This success in the Pro class of the SRO E-sport GT Series enhances our image as the overall level of the championship was very high. Many famous teams and some manufacturers took part. I’m delighted to be able to count on an ambassador of the calibre of Louis who got really involved and devoted many hours to preparing for each race. For our Project eGPX, which will be the virtual squad of our racing team, we’re going to create a crew of sim racers to aim for other victories as well as fostering young drivers in the learning stages and preparation of their real-life programmes!”
