India's Akhil Rabindra will start his 2020 season on August 21 with the French FFSA GT4 Championship. Akhil will be driving an Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 for the AGS Events Racing team, across five rounds of the six round Championship.

The Bengaluru racer, who was recently retained by the Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy, was last seen in domestic racing action in December last year, while his last international race was in October, 2019 at Atlanta.

The start to this season has been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic but Akhil now finally kicks off his season on August 21, at the Circuit Paul Armagnac de Nogaro in Southwestern France with the three-day Easter Cups from Nagaro' series.

Nagaro will be Round 2 of the Championship. He then proceeds to Nevers Magny-Cours (Sep 11-13), Paul Ricard (Oct 3-4) and Albi (Oct 16-18), before concluding with the Ledenon GT Series at the Ledenon Circuit (Nov 6-8).

"It will be my first time at the French National GT Championships, which makes me want to do well even more," said Rabindra.

"Paul Ricard is the only circuit on which I have raced before, so that makes it all the more challenging. AGS have had a great GT racing record over the years and I am determined to help them better it even more."

The AGS team will be fielding three cars in each race with two Pro-Am cars and one Amateur car. Akhil will be the pro in one of the Pro-Am cars. This will be the 11th year of competitive racing for AGS events racing team.

A total of 22-teams will be competing for the 2020 French FFSA GT4 Championships with as many as 15 top constructors fielding their latest GT4 models.
