Beechdean AMR ready for victory battle at Brands Hatch

Thursday, July 30, 2015

This weekend (1st/2nd August), in round 6 of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, Beechdean AMR hope to maintain their current first place position in the GT4 class Championship, and aim for GT3 victory, where they are currently second in the Championship.

The two hour race will take place on Sunday 2nd August after qualifying races on Saturday, at Britain’s best loved motor racing circuit, the Brands Hatch GP circuit.

After fantastic GT3 victory for Andrew Howard, 2013 British GT Champion, and race partner Jonny Adam, Aston Martin Factory driver, in the last round at Spa, the Beechdean team are confident they can score some strong points.

With 20 seconds of extra pit stop time, and as the Championship is nearing its end, it’s even more vital that the Beechdean Aston Martin GT3 Vantage performs at its best. Howard and Adam have proved throughout the season so far that they are more than capable of this, as well as proven by their success at Brands Hatch in 2013 with their overall win.

Jamie Chadwick and Ross Gunn, Aston Martin Racing Evolution Academy drivers, have given a faultless performance in the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 throughout the season so far with earlier victories at Rockingham and Silverstone, and finished in a strong second place at the prestigious Spa circuit in the last round of British GT.

With seamless pit stops, rapid driver changes and clever strategy to be put into practice at Brands Hatch this weekend, all four Beechdean AMR drivers can bring both cars to great success and set the pace for the rest of the Championship.

Andrew Howard: “Brands will be a competitive race and an important one at this stage of the Championship, but we are confident after our win at Spa. Our goal this weekend is to finish with big points in both classes.”

Jonny Adam: “After our victory at Spa we come into this weekend with confidence but have to carry 20 seconds extra in the pit stop. Brands Hatch is a good circuit for the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin GT3 after winning in 2013 and the closest finish in 2012. Qualifying will be key to a good weekend for myself and Andrew.”

Jamie Chadwick: “Brands GP is an old school circuit, oozing with motor racing history. I’ve raced there twice and always enjoyed it. This year I’m expecting it to be very competitive, but hopefully we can enjoy some more success for the Beechdean AMR team."

Ross Gunn: “We are now starting the business end of the championship, and strong points from now to the end of the season is our target. The Brands Hatch GP circuit, another home race for Beechdean AMR, is certainly one of the UK’s most challenging for both car and driver. I believe both Jamie and I have a good chance of scoring another podium this weekend in the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 car.”
