CGD Motorsport is a sim racing team that competes in various .Race9 championships. It was founded on September 1st, 2020 to advertise team founder Constantin Grimmingers various design projects. The three letter abbreviation of 'CGD' is an acronym for Constantin Grimminger Design, hence giving the team it's name. It's headquarters are located in Graz, Austria.

For sponsorship reasons it mostly entered under various names and flags.

Racing History

Founded in September 2020, it was clear the team would not hit major competitions until 2021. However, Grimminger decided quickly to enter the .Race9 GT4 Cup as a driver/owner to get his campaign underway.

The team has already laid out a schedule for the upcoming 2021 sim racing seasons and plans on announcing it via Facebook in February 2021.

GT4 Cup

For the inaugural GT4 Cup season CGD Motorsport entered under the name of Yellow Hawk Racing and the US flag, sporting a pair of Ginettas for team owner Grimminger and mid-season sign-up Carlos Vargas. For the last pair of races however, the uncompetitive Ginetta was abandoned and Vargas released from the team with zero races entered. Instead, CGD Motorsport joint rival outfit C-Force Racing, who were also looking for a replacement of their Ford Mustang GT4s.
