Busy times for AMR customer teams as well

Wednesday, April 27, 2016

It isn't just the factory guys and girls who are criss-crossing around Europe in search of the optimum set up and lap time this weekend - many of their customer teams will be doing likewise.

In Britain the second round of the 2016 British GT Championship heads to the Rockingham circuit in Northamptonshire with Round one winners TF Sport looking to continue their good start with Jonny Adam and Derek Johnston.

Without any european distractions this weekend Beechdean will be looking to capitalise on the obvious pace of their new GT3 hot shot in Ross Gunn with ELMS Silverstone race winner Andrew Howard now undistracted by his side.

For some the series opener was catastrophic to say the least with the Motorbase Vantage GT3 of Ross Wylie and Phil Dryburgh being (presumably) written off having barrel rolled over the MacMillan Motorsport V8 Vantage GT4 of Matty Graham during the first half of the Brands Hatch opener. We believe that repairs the GT4 are well under way and the car should thankfully be back with us at Rockingham but the Motorbase car that is another story!

Other than the question mark over the Motorbase GT3 Vantage, the Rockingham entry list is as expected - Jamie Chadwick continues in the Generation AMR SuperDry GT4 alongside Matt George again and everyone else is listed as they should.

Over in Italy - new Aston Martin Racing Partner Team Solaris Motorsport will kick off their opening round of the Italian GT Series at Monza for the first time in their new V12 Vantage GT3 with drivers Francesco Sini and Max Mugelli looking for a good opener. We still await the official livery for this Italian #007 though.

Then, but by no means least we shall see the return of The Racer Groups 007 V12 Vantage GTD for another one off appearance at Mazda Raceway Leguna Seca and round four of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship with James Davison and Brandon Davis behind the wheel. Due to budgetary restrictions the car hasn't been seen out in the IMSA championship since the Daytona24.
