Generation AMR back to British GT with SuperRacing

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

It was great to read that long term GT racers Generation AMR have this morning confirmed their entry into the 2016 British GT Championship with an all new Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4.

Having swapped to another prestigious GT3 marque for the 2014 season the team now reverted back to a race platform that has served them well since their conception in 2009. It is understood that they have acquired one of the first and heavily revised for 2016 specification Vantage GT4.

They will race under the SuperRacing banner.

James Holder

The change in name is due to one half of the driver pairing being James Holder, a co-founder and designer at the clothing brand SuperDry. He will be joined by Matt George, a former karter and Base Performance Simulator technician for what surely will become a 'baptism of fire'.

Remarkably, this will be Holders first ever racing experience and with George have little/no recent on track racing experience it is understood that the duo have been undertaking extensive simulator training for at least six months.

“It will be Holder’s first season racing" said Team boss David Appleby "so we want to make sure he learns what is required to be competitive going forward. He is a driven and focused individual, as you would expect, so I know he will push himself whilst still enjoying what a great championship British GT has become".

“James and Matthew work well together with Matthew having coached him on the Base Performance GT simulator. The GT4 Aston Martin is the perfect car for James and Matthew’s first year racing together; reliable, safe and fast.”

Good luck to them both.

And if the design of any SuperDry clothing is anything to go by we should have a cracking livery on the car.

** Have been informed that James Holder will be designing the livery himself. It will apparently be fairly plain to start but will 'evolve' into something quite good as the season progresses**
