From 26th-30th June, the Belgian town of Spa will play host to one of the most iconic races in the GT3 calendar - 24 Hours Of Spa.

Both premium listening systems represent the very leading edge of technology and design - making them the perfect playback solution for Sky Tempesta Racing and the GT3 Championship. Both Omnia and RS250 will be in use throughout the race weekend, with some exciting and unexpected events planned that will focus attention on both wireless speakers’ ability to distinctly elevate the listening experience.

Sky Tempesta Team


Since their founding, Sky Tempesta Racing has proved a formidable addition to the starting grid throughout multiple competitions and disciplines. Their honours list includes podium finishes and victories in the renowned Blancpain Endurance Championship and GT World Challenge Europe Powered by AWS. Then in 2020 and 2021, the team went on to take the GT World Challenge European Sprint PRO-AM by storm, finishing as Drivers and Overall Champions in each respective year.

In 2023, Sky Tempesta Racing announced a new partnership with McLaren, driving the McLaren 720s Evo in the competitive British GT Championship with Chris Froggatt and Kevin Tse taking the wheel. And now, the longstanding trio of Chris Froggatt, Edward Cheever, and Jonathan Hui are taking on the GT World European Endurance Championship once again. The team is set to continue its partnership with Mercedes, entering into the Intercontinental GT Challenge driving the Mercedes AMG GT3 at circuits around the world.

Podiums and trophies aside, what these results prove is that - just 6 short years after the team first took to the track - Sky Tempesta has astutely and relentlessly formed a highly respected and winning Pro-Am endurance racing team.

McIntosh and Sonus faber wish the very best of luck to everyone at Sky Tempesta Racing for the 2024 season.
