Nova NP02 debuts in GT Winter Series

The Nova NP02 prototype will compete for the first time at the GT Winter Series‘ guest round in Estoril.

The second race weekend of the GT Winter Series in the 2022/2023 season will see an interesting debut. For the first time, the Nova NP02 will compete in the racing series. The vehicle entered by ANS Motorsport will start in the Cup X class. Pilot Jonathan Brossard was originally scheduled to pilot a Ligier LMP3 car, but will now take the wheel of the Nova.

The vehicle was presented to the public at the end of 2021 and is a sports car in the FIA E2SC category. The lightweight was made entirely of carbon fibre. The sports car is powered by a Ford Coyote V8 engine, which has a displacement of five litres. The vehicle’s power output is around 460 hp.

Second car from ANS Motorsport

The Nova NP02 will be the second vehicle from ANS Motorsport, which the French team around the professional racing driver Nicolas Schatz will enter in the GT Winter Series. In addition to the Nova prototype, the squad will field a Ligier JS2R for Julien Lemoine.

„We are very pleased about the debut of the Nova NP02 in the GT Winter Series. This shows that our race series is not only interesting for GT cars, but also owners of prototypes find an interesting field of activity in the GT Winter Series!“ says GTWS project manager Robin Selbach, before adding with a laugh: „But of course we are also looking forward to the sound when the car with its V8 engine is on track in Estoril!“
