Two Astons confirmed for European GT4 Northern Cup opener

Wednesday, March 29, 2017

A record breaking grid of 33 cars have been confirmed for the opening round of the new (for 2017) European GT4 Northern Cup series that starts at Misano, Italy this weekend.

Amongst the grid of many Porsche Cayman's, McLaren 570's, KTM X-Bow's, Maseriati's, etc shall be two Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4's belonging to Belgium team Street Art Racing and UK team Academy Motorsport.

Rejoining the championship for Street Art Racing is 2016 Am Champion Jerome Demay in the teams colourful #007 car - he will be joined by Royal Automobile Club of Belgium team driver Denis Dupont as they also move up to the Pro category.

Committing to their first full season in this championship is the British Academy Motorsport team of Matt Nichol-Jones and Will Moore with their #62 car. Moore and another former team mate, Dennis Strandberg saw out the series finale at Zandvoort last year narrowly missing out on an podium finish and they obviously liked what they saw.

Having shaken down their car this week at the British GT Media Day at Snetterton on Tuesday at least the team will only have a 'few' decals to swap!!

Track action starts on Friday afternoon with the first free practice, followed by the second practice session at 6.20 pm. Qualifying will take place on Saturday afternoon with the start of Race 1 at 9pm. Race 2 will get underway at 2pm on Sunday afternoon.

Both races will be streamed live HERE
