GT4 European hits Brands Hatch for Round 2

Wednesday, May 02, 2018

Both Street Art Racing and Academy Motorsport will be hoping for greater consistency with their collective three Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 entry at this weekend GT4 European Series form Brands Hatch.

Academy skipped the series Official Test at Zolder back in March in preference to their private testing in Portimao and that became pretty evident at the first round of the Series last month in the first two races of the season. With such little time to practice together, Zolder became a baptism of fire for both Matt Nichol-Jones and new co driver Fiona James as both technical issues and race 'rustiness' blighted both of their races to finish DNF and P20 respectively.

For the teams second car, it was a case of grade demotion and driving alone for Immanuel Vinke in the AM class as no second driver could be found in time. We understand that for Brands Hatch that situation remains the same as he looks to improve from P28 and P34 last time out.

Hopefully the teams P3 podium last week for Nichol-Jones in British GT will serve as a catalyst for them all.

For the Belgium Street Art Team, Zolder was also the first time out in that formula for their young and inexperienced driver Julien Darras and their Pro Pascal Bachmann.

With both races for the Blancpain GT support series taking place on Sunday, that leaves little margin for error should any team have an altercation with the circuits newly enhanced safety barrier systems.

Qualifying and both races can be viewed live from the series webpage.
