British GT: Three Aston Martin's for Silverstone enduro

Monday, August 02, 2010

British GT regulars Barwell-Cadena will be joined at this weekend’s Silverstone enduro by two other Aston Martin DBRS9's

Vantage Racing will début their brand new DBRS9 with Tom Black and 2009 Aston Martin Racing LMP1 driver Stuart Hall at the wheel. “The Silverstone race will be a good test for the car, which is completely new to us. Depending on how things go, we may look at doing more British GT races later on.” Said Vantage Racing Team Manager Hugh Chamberlain

Joining them will be Andrew Howard who will be partnered by Aston Martin works driver Darren Turner in the Beechdean-Barwell DBRS9. "It'll be great, The Cars aren't slow - they're close to GT2 pace - and there won’t be the same sort of pressure as in the GT1 World Championship or LMS" said Turner who will test the 2010 spec car before the event.

"Having done so well at Brands last season the target is to get a podium. We'll do Silverstone and hopefully Brands" said Howard who also plans to contest British GT in 2011 "If this goes well my intention is to do a full season in British GT in 2011 and maybe FIA GT3"
