British GT Media Day Part 2/3

Thursday, March 17, 2016

The AMR teams attending the British GT Media Day on Tuesday included series stalwarts Beechdean Motorsport with a GT3 and GT4 Vantage, new comers PFL Motorsport together with Generation AMR SuperRacing with their respective GT3 and GT4 cars along with JWB and Stratton Motorsports with their V8 Vantage GT4's.

Meeting JWB Motorsport again on Tuesday following their somewhat technically affected test at the circuit only a couple of weeks or so ago the championship ambitions of drivers Kieran Griffin and Jake Giddings are somewhat raised for 2016 following their 'difficult' season last year when the car was blighted with small but race limiting gremlins. Both have already shown their worth within the freshly liveried car by claiming a class podium at this years Dubai 24H.

The drivers also sported some new race suits that any washing powder manufacture would have been proud of but again they were straight out of the packet so …………!

Having only run a part season last year Stratton Motorsport return to the series with a full season entry for two discerning gentleman more akin to the workings of the Aston Martin Owners Club meeting than a hard fought for national series with state of the art GT machinery competing within it.

David Tinn obviously got the bug for the series when he partnered Jade Edwards in the teams Vantage GT4 at the Snetterton event last year and for 2016 he returns with the teams freshly 2016 revised V8 Vantage GT4 with fellow AMOC driver Robin Marriott.

A new team for 2016 is the Generation AMR Super Racing team competing with two inexperienced drivers with a V8 Vantage GT4 and with one of those drivers being a co-founder and designer for the SuperDry clothing company you would expect something a bit special.

Well, if the team did nothing else for the season they will have at least have brought a bit of glamour to the pit lane - team mechanics and other personnel devoid (when pit lane circumstances allow) of oily race suits and sporting bespoke #44 AMR SuperDry clothing in their place. Thats not to mention the extremely simple yet highly effective luminescent livery aboard the car and garage hoardings.

Under the watchful eye of team boss James Appleby the two drivers Matt George and James Holder still apparently need more track time and race signatures to elevate their racing licence to the degree required for the whole season.

Yet despite their inexperience relative to the other GT4 runners the duo were running as the fastest GT4 pairing at the end of the morning test session!!
