Strong test performance for Quantamatic at Oulton Park

Friday, March 06, 2015

Having had their first test day in preparation for their 2015 British GT season prematurely disrupted with a gearbox sensor fault last week, the Quantamatic sponsored Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 of Terry Langley and Mike Hart travelled north in search of some fortune and mileage.

With their Team Parker Racing prepared car having to go back to Prodrive for a fortunately speedy repair the two ex. Caterham drivers were looking to get some 'decent' test mileage under their belts at what will later be the first round of the British GT Series - at Oulton Park.

"Both coming from a single driver racing format we both need to figure out how to (a) work with a new team and (b) with each other and all as a unit" said Mike Hart after the test. "We both agree that Team Parker Racing have done a fantastic job in preparing the car for us and have made us feel very welcome which makes our side of things much easier".

"The car is easy to drive" said Terry Langley, "its very well balanced, particularly in the mid to high speed corners. I thought that it would be a little 'understeery' but there is sufficient grip on the front end to give you that confidence to push a bit harder".

Between the two drivers the car completed about 350km in race and qualifying simulation runs and ended the day only about 0.5seconds off the pace of last years Race 1 winning Beechdean GT4 but on the new 2015 spec Avon rubber which is apparently harder than last years.

The team now look forward with added confidence as they head out to Spa Francorchamps at the end of March for some more testing before rushing back for the British GT Media day at Brands Hatch on the 25th March with some more testing after that at Rockingham!!
