A second Aston Martin GT3 joins GT3 Le Mans Cup at Spa

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

Series organisers today released the twelve car entry list for next weekends penultimate round of the inaugural Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup championship at Spa Francorchamps, including details of a second car from the Aston Martin Racing stable.

Joining full season entries Salih Yoluc and Euan Hankey in their #34 TF Sport Vantage GT3 will be Belgium team Auto-club Excelsior with their Vantage GT3 to driven by Tim Verbergt and an as yet unidentified second driver in the car we believe to belongs to Aston Martin Brussels Racing team.

Verbergt was last seen out in that car, in a full european format at least when he and Michael Schmitz competed with podium success at the Spa round of the International GT Open event last September.

The two AMR's, together with the single McLaren, Porsche and Lamborghini will at least break up what is otherwise a Ferrari 458/488 GT3 festival who's cars make up the remaining grid.

The #34 TF Sport car presently leads the team championship by 13 points from the #72 SMP Racing Ferrari but Hankey and Yoluc are both 10 points in arrears to the Russian line up of Basov and Shaitar in that #72 458.

With just Spa and the final round at Estoril to go both championships are open enough for even the mid table drivers /teams to win should those above suffer misfortune.

Full entry list can be found HERE

As usual, Free Practice is on the Friday with both qualifying ad the two hour race on Saturday (24th) with the race itself starting at 17.30Hrs local.
