Poole and Abra confirm 2014 plans

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Today saw Mark Poole and Richard Abra confirm their 2014 race plans with confirmed full season entries in both the 2014 British GT and Blancpain Endurance Series with their distinctive black and red liveried Aston Martin Vantage V12 GT3.

Previously racing in 2013 as MP-Motorsport (under the care of Barwell Motorsport) a recent team restructure including the appointment of a new team manager in Dave Wilcox has seen closer AMR factory links and resources being made available to them. In 2014 the the team has rebranded as MP-AMR.

Whilst publicly thanking Barwell Motorsport for all their professionalism and assistance with the drivers inaugural season Richard Abra was quoted as saying that the offers from Prodrive were simply "too good to be missed". We understand that the new arrangements will follow similar patterns to that currently enjoyed by Beechdean Motorsport.

Having also sampled the Blancpain Endurance series at Silverstone last year the excited duo also confirmed the addition of Joe Osborne as their third driver in the highly competitive Pro-Am class. The team shall expect a real baptism of fire in 2014 with the first round of the BES being at Monza 12/13th April and the British GT kicking off at Oulton Park the following weekend.
