Mixed results for #TeamAMR over the weekend

Tuesday, June 26, 2018

Last weekend's round of motorsport across Europe produced another mixed bag of results for #TeamAMR with some rekindling previous previous successes whilst others hit problems that put pay to all their hard work.

Avia Racing returned to the Nordschliefe with their distinctly liveried V8 Vantage GT4 for the third round of the VLN having already secured both a podium and a DNF in the opening rounds but having sat out the prestigious ADAC Zurich N24 last month.

At the end of Saturday's three hours the teams #188 entry with drivers Wolfgang Weber, Thomas Krebs and Erik Johansson claimed another SP10 class podium finishing in P2 just two minutes behind the class winning BMW M3.

Meanwhile up at Oulton Park, both Whitebridge AMR and EDF Motorsport returned for the third round of the Britcar Endurance Championship having both contested the AMR Festival at Le Mans the weekend before.

For Mal Sandford and Ben Seyfried combo in the #10 car, their race day was relatively short-lived as just twelve laps into Race 1 Seyfried hit one of the circuit's 'sausage kerbs' that launched the air high into the air before coming down seriously damaging the front suspension, sub frame, steering and engine mounts causing not only a red flag but the end of their racing day. Sounds like the EDF Motorsport guys will have a fair bit of work to do there!

Chris Murphy meanwhile returned with a solo car effort for this round in the only car in the S3 GT4 class with his #72 Vantage GT4 and two decent overall finishes (in both races) allowed him to accumulate enough points to sit just behind team mate Barry McMahon (who always wasn't going to compete at this meeting rather than because his Whitebridge car was damaged at Le Mans) in the Championship before it moves on to the next round at Donington Park next month.
