Exciting driver line up for AMR Rookie Test

Friday, November 04, 2016

The FIA WEC today confirmed an extended list of participants for this years Rookie Test in Bahrain following the final race of the 2016 season in three weeks time.

As usual, Aston Martin racing will be making both of its GTE Pro cars available for the test for with (at present) six announced drivers for both the at test and what we are sure will also become an extended Dunlop tyre development test for the factory team.

Joining the team will include the likes of Alex Lynn, Jordan King, Matt Parry and Ross Gunn, many of whom already have either LMP2 or GTE experience. Also joining the team for the test will be the driver pairing from the 2016 Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup Team Champions in Salih Yoluc and Euan Hankey preparing for their invitation to the Le Mans 24hr in 2017 for their GT3 LMC championship win.

Other drivers are likely to be shoe horned into the programme before the final classification from the WEC be confirmed a week prior to the Bahrain event.
