GC KOMPETITION has announced a long-term agreement with Rokas Baciuska,   the 19-year old Lithuanian driver. Baciuska will join the GCK squad from World RX Norway and will drive the third GCK Renault Megane RSRX.

Baciuska is finishing his last year of school and will sit his final exams just ahead of making his GCK  debut in Hell, Norway on June 15th .

Team boss, Chicherit commented: “We’re super happy to have such a talented young driver join our GCK squad. Rokas has already shown big promise, dedication and results behind the wheel and I can’t wait for him line up on the grid in our third GCK Megane R.S. RX.”

“I’m really excited that I’m able to continue my progression in World Rallycross and that I’ve found such an incredible team to be part of," Baciuska said "I’ve been spending a lot of time with the guys at GCK and I’m super impressed with the way they work, the performance and promise of the car and I cannot wait to race alongside the GC Kompetition and GCK Academy drivers in Norway.”
