Revised driver line up for Beechdean AMR at ELMS finale

Tuesday, October 10, 2017

The provisional entry list released today for the final round of the 2017 European Le Mans Series at Portimao in two weeks time has indicated a slight driver change for outgoing GTE Champions Beechdean AMR.

Having finally battled their way back to the GTE Class podium last time out at Spa Francorchamps, the entry lists sadly omits the name of Ross Gunn from the red, white and blue V8 Vantage GTE in favour of young German Immanuel Vinke who now joins team boss Andrew Howard and Darren Turner in Portugal.

Lately of Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup experience with the #32 Am Class Zakspeed team, the twenty two year old silver ranked driver also has experience in the European GT4 Series but nothing of note in any GTE car unless of course he tested with the team at two recent AMR/AML tests at both Snetterton and Silverstone!

Twenty four points behind the class leading TF Sport car, the #99 crew do of course have the slightest of chances of retaining their crown should they take maximum points and those around them 'drop like flies'.

We understand that this move is a pre-cursor from the team's announced expansion into a number of other national and european GT racing series in 2018.
