Monday, August 31, 2015

Craft Bamboo Racing last night confirmed that Daniel Lloyd will replace the injured Jonathan Venter in their #99 yellow and green VLT liveried car for the rest of the 2015 GT Asia Series.

As reported a couple of weeks ago the young Australian Aston Martin Racing Evolution Academy driver Venter picked up a significant hip injury whilst training, an injury that required would require surgery keeping him out of the car until the end of the year.

Having been released by Motorbase (Oman Racing) after the Spa24 Evolution Academy driver Daniel Lloyd has signed to compete in the last three races of the GT Asia campaign starting this weekend for a three hour endurance at the Sapang racetrack in Malaysia.

“I am over the moon about joining the team for the last three rounds. It will be my first time racing in Asia, so I'm really excited about the opportunity. I have been in a GT3 Aston all year so I'm used to the car, my goal is to show my pace as well as being consistent, and with the #99 currently leading the championship; this is the most important thing. The championship is certainly my number one priority and I am very excited to get out there and start racing with the team at Sepang" said Lloyd.

Team regular Darryl O'Young welcomed the young Brit and looked forward to the upcoming races having lost his regular co-driver in such unfortunate circumstances. "We are really happy to have Daniel Lloyd join #99 as he is a promising driver from the AMR Evolution Academy. He knows the car well and should be able to adapt quickly which is very important for the team as he joins us mid-season. The entire team was really devastated when we heard the news about Jono, but we are really happy that he is ok and on his way to recovery. He has the full support of the Craft-Bamboo family at this difficult time.”
