Aston Martin - the car of choice for the boss of SRO

Tuesday, April 21, 2015

This weekend just gone saw the opening round of the SRO's latest GT championship for the more discerning, bronze rated gentleman driver - the GT Sports club.

Featuring a 13 car grid for the inaugural event at Barcelona the new championship followed the same proven format as its sister Blancpain Endurance Series featuring a shorter 25minute 'qualifying' race followed by a longer 40 minute main race the next day.

One such competitor taking part was none other the the head of the SRO - Stephane Ratel no less racing one of his ex.Valmon Racing Team Russia Aston Martin DBRS9's driven in 2012 by Andreas Zuber and Sergey Afanasyev.

Unfortunately the Frenchman finished in ninth and one lap off the lead lap!
