Beechdean to campaign V12 Vantage GT3 in 2012 British GT season

Thursday, November 24, 2011

Beechdean Motorsport will campaign a factory supported Aston Martin GT3 V12 Vantage in next year’s British GT championship along with other selected events.

Speaking to AUTOSPORT  Beechdean team boss Andrew Howard confirmed the teams 2012 program  “We’re definitely in British GT and the aim is to do the Spa 24H and some Blancpain Endurance Series races if we can” said Howard “it’s very much Beechdean carrying on, but with the extra depth of manufacturer support. The whole aim is to push the car forward. It’s a fantastic opportunity for Jonny and me to be involved with the next generation of GT3 Aston”

The  GT3 Vantage will replace the Beechdean’s five-year-old DBRS9 which the team raced to two victories in 2011

“We learned a lot driving a five-year-old car” said Howard “so if we can build on that with a new one we hope we can be at the top level in British GT.”

Howard will again be partnered by Jonny Adams who’s impressive performance during the 2011 season saw him regarded as one of the top drivers in the series.

“I think he’s come into British GT and shown he has a true talent. With the level of British GT now you need a top driver, not just in the car but with training the armature driver too.”

The British GT season will get underway at Oulton Park April 7th
