Last minute preparation for British GT at Brands Hatch

Thursday, July 30, 2015

For several Aston Martin customer teams competing in the British GT series the last few days has been something of an organised panic in order to ready themselves for Round 6 of the 2015 season and the 2hour race at Brands Hatch on Sunday 2nd August.

Oman Racing's #2 car of Ahmad Al Harthy and Daniel Lloyd would be the busiest having just competed in last weekend's Spa24 coming agonisingly close to what would have been a triumphant result for the Pro-Am car. Hopefully the relatively short hop back across the somewhat stagnating channel crossing routes will not have cost the team too much lost time in the workshop.

Having suffered from power performance issues at the British GT event at Spa two weeks ago GT4 team JMB Motorsport would shakedown their V8 Vantage at Snetterton last week to confirm the diagnosis of a faulty fuel pump by the Prodrive factory. Jake Giddings was at hand at the damp Norfolk track for that exercise.

Due to the ongoing financial issues the Stratton Motorsport V8 Vantage entry of Jade and Chloe Edwards will again be missing together with the #71 Quantamatic V8 Vantage of Mike Hart and Terry Langley for the same reasons.

Hart however did appear with Chris Webster in the #62 Academy Motorsport V8 Vantage GT4 at the Spa event having covered the costs from his own pocket. Tonight we can though confirm that another 'one off' deal has been struck between the team and Hart for him to again complete alongside Webster in the #62 car at Brands Hatch at the weekend.

Remaining entries are as follows
