Turner back in the Vantage GT8 at VLN

Wednesday, August 29, 2018

Aston Martin Racing driver Darren Turner will this weekend be exchanging the sweeping curves of Goodwood for the complexities of the Nordschleife as he returns for another outing in the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 at VLN 6.

Racing with another customer SP8 class entry from its AMR Performance Centre, Turner will be joining experienced gentleman drivers David Tilenius and Henning Cramer in his first return to the circuit since the factory team's near podium finish in the ADAC Zurich 24H race earlier this year.

Joining them will be again be the SP10 full season entry from Avia Racing with Wolfgang Weber, Eric Johansson and Thomas Krebs behind the wheel. These guys last round of the VLN Series earlier this month ended just after the first hour mark with ABS issues that could not be resolved enough for the car to be safe enough for it to allowed to return. Hopefully they have this resolved as a class podium will go a long way in lifting their spirits after something of a disappointing series so far.
