Will Phillips completes Speedwork's driver line up at CoTA 24H

Tuesday, October 31, 2017

It's great to see that Will Phillips completes the Speedworks driver line up for next months inaugural 24H Series event at the Circuit of the America's in Austin, Texas.

The former MacMillan Racing racer competed with ever improving success in the British GT Championship this year alongside young Dane Jan Jonck in their #42 Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 so he should be well at home in the Speedwork's prepared car and with a team well versed in running these split long endurance races.

He joins the existing Speedwork's contingent of John Gilbert, team boss Christian Dick as well as BTCC racer Tom Ingram rounding off the quartet so despite this being his first 24 hour and the teams first racing venture to continental America, the #225 SP3 class car could be one to watch.

Joining them at CoTA will of course be the Aston Martin Lagonda entered Vantage GT8 with Messrs. Andy Palmer, Peter Cate, Paul Hollywood and John Hindhaugh behind the wheel of that car.

However, looking through the now 95% completed entry list you will see Aston Martin Racing names old and new (although not all racing any more Aston's unfortunately) including Roald Goethe, Stuart Hall and Jamie Campbell-Walter all in the RoFGO Mercedes AMG, Ross Gunn and Jorge De La Torre in his own V12 Vantage GT3 as well as Liam Griffin in the Track Club Porsche.

The event now has the machinery and drivers to make this a great one!

Track action takes place over the weekend of Friday 10th to the 12th November.
