MARKLUND RETURNS WITH GCK BILSTEIN

Monday 9th of March 2020

Sweden’s Anton Marklund returns to World RX in 2020 at the helm of GCK Bilstein, part of the GC Kompetition squad. 

 Marklund, who started with GCK in 2018, is intent on building on the last couple of years of development of the GCK Renault Megane R.S. RX to challenge for the title.

 After taking GCK’s best-ever result of second at Loheac RX last year, Marklund is raring to get going in Barcelona next month. “I just can’t wait to get started. Together with Bilstein we made great progress last year and showed really good speed, and with the extra time and better preparations over this winter we are ready to start 2020 with a bang,” he said.

 “Being able to build on the developments with car from last year, and the existing relationships I have with the team and technical partners, allows us to start the season strongly. I want to say thanks to Bilstein for all the support they’ve given me and the team so far and for committing to us even more this year – together we push to be the best and it’s the kind of partnership we need to be successful.”

GCK team owner Guerlain Chicherit added: “I’m stoked to have Anton with us again in 2020 – he brought GCK our best ever result last season and has shown great trust in us from the start. He’ll build on last year and be even stronger this year, and, together with Bilstein, will be sure to put down a super successful 2020.”

Martin Flick, Head of Motorsport at Bilstein, said the German suspension specialist company was pleaseed to extend the growing partnership with GCK: “At a Bilstein Company meeting last year, I made the claim that we would be the World RX Champions with the GCK team in 2020," he said. "After a year of ongoing development, I am sure that the GCK Bilstein team has set the course for maximum competitiveness. We are proud and happy to work with the very best in the world on this fantastic story.”
