AMR runners in GT4 European Series hungry for success in Hungary

Friday, August 31, 2018

With only three point scoring finishes out of a possible eight, the Academy Motorsport pairing of Fiona James and Matt Nichol-Jones will have been looking to see out the closing stages of the 2018 GT4 European Series on a higher level as the series competes at its penultimate round at the Hungaroring this weekend.

Belgium Pro-Am class stablemates in their own beautifully liveried Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 of Julian Darras and Pascal Bachmann are in a similar position just four points ahead of the British Team.

Both teams enjoyed a productive start to the meeting during the first of the Free Practice sessions this morning, both ending up in the top half of the timing screen and that extended to some degree into the second practice session before Qualifying. An as yet unidentified issue with the #60 Academy car forced it back into the Paddock for repairs missing nearly half of FP2 and didn't enter any time during Qualifying 1 for tomorrows first race. The #007 SAR car finished 24th out of the starting 43 car grid.

With the AM's in the car for Qualifying 2 later this afternoon, at least both cars managed to submit a time to start Sundays race albeit in P36 for the #007 and P41 for the #60 car with at least a further three car starting behind them after others had issues.

Like any other race series, Free Practice and Qualifying are one thing - the races are a whole new ball game!

Both races will be streamed live as usual from the series website HERE
