Two AMR's finally back in GT Cup

Saturday, June 30, 2018

Two of Aston Martin Racing's finest finally return to what is a very hot and sunny Snetterton race track for the fourth round of the GT Cup championship this weekend.

We say finally, as Whitebridge AMR had the misfortune of 'loosing' one of their available V8 Vantage GT4's in a crash whilst testing for another series and have since then been competing in a Team Hard Ginetta for the last two rounds, which at least had kept their class championship title hopes alive.

Whitebridge AMR drivers Chris Murphy and local lad Adam Hatfield return with the teams latest AMR acquisition that the they ran at the Aston Martin Racing Festival at Le Mans earlier this month as well as the last round of the Britcar Championship last weekend. The more observant of you will see that their #72 car is indeed a former Generation AMR SuperRacing car that Murphy purchased from James Holder after the earlier accident, a purchase that allowed the car to win its class at the Le Mans Festival!

They are of course joined at the race weekend with overall winners last time out at Spa Francorchamps, Nigel Hudson and Adam Wilcox aboard their brightly coloured JMH prepared V12 Vantage GT3. Hudson and Wilcox lay just six points off the overall lead in the Championship but lead their GTO Class quite convincingly. Despite their car issues earlier this year Murphy and Hatfield still lead their GTH Class by over 30 points.

With early Free Practice sessions already completed both the #12 Hudson Motorsport car and the #72 Whitebridge AMR car head their respective classes going in to Qualifying for todays two races.
