Record Breaking Trophy haul for Beechdean AMR

Monday, November 09, 2015

On Friday 6th November, 2015 British GT Champions Beechdean AMR celebrated an incredible season at the annual SRO Night Of Champions awards ceremony. Held at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square, Mayfair, Beechdean AMR’s drivers and team staff enjoyed the glittering occasion where drivers and teams from around the world were celebrated for their achievements across the SRO Motorsport groups spectrum.

Andrew Howard and Jonny Adam were present to collect their British GT3 Championship trophies. A fifth season for the highly successful pairing saw them take more wins in their Aston Martin Vantage GT3 car than in any other season of competition, firmly making their mark into the British GT history books. Howard, who added a second GT3 title to the one he clinched in 2013, was also awarded a personalised limited edition Blancpain 8885 S timepiece as his prize for winning the Blancpain Gentleman Trophy. Meanwhile, Adam collected the inaugural Sunoco Fastest Driver of the Year award, recognition of his speed throughout the 2015 season.

It was an especially busy night for Adam who was also presented with a cheque of $250,000 by Anglo American Oil Company managing director Anders Hildebrand as part of his prize for winning this year’s Sunoco Whelen Challenge. The Scot will be in the US this January to prepare for 2016’s Daytona 24 Hours with Action Express Racing.

Beechdean AMR stablemates and AMR Evolution Academy Drivers, Jamie Chadwick and Ross Gunn, were also presented with their GT4 equivalents. The youngest ever British GT driver line up took the overall drivers championship a round early at Snetterton in August, after an unbelievably consistent campaign. In doing so, Chadwick became the youngest British GT champion and the first female champion in the series history. As a silver-silver rated driver pairing, they also became overall winners in the GT4 silver cup.

Quotes on the night entered below from the four drivers...

Jonny Adam: “It was nice to finally celebrate our success from the 2015 British GT season. It's been a massive team effort this year and to win both GT3 / GT4 championships is something that every member of Beechdean AMR have to be very proud of. Big thank you to Andrew, Beechdean and Aston Martin Racing for giving us a fast GT3 Aston Martin Vantage to win with this year”

Andrew Howard: “What a year it has been. To win the championship again, and to scoop the Blancpain gentleman trophy is a great feeling. Personally, seeing both Jamie and Ross win us another GT4 Championship underlines what Beechdean can do at producing champions. It was a huge team effort this year so a massive well done to everyone involved in Beechdean AMR and all our sponsors and fans. Looking forward to 2016...”

Ross Gunn: “It is these moments that make all of the hard work during the season worthwhile. To race in such a prestigious championship for a great team in Beechdean AMR has been a massive privilege for me personally. I would like to both thank and congratulate everyone involved in the team’s 2015 success. Beechdean AMR has made a substantial contribution to my career, and I can only wish to keep working with them for the foreseeable future.”

Jamie Chadwick: “Moving up to racing at a senior level in British GT could have been quite daunting, but the Beechdean AMR Team have been brilliant - totally professional, very supportive and a really friendly bunch when the racing is over. I feel privileged to have been part of such a successful season with such a fantastic group of people”
