And the Aston Martin Racing customer news just keeps on coming ...........!!

Tuesday, November 06, 2018

Little over three weeks since finally testing the new Aston Martin Racing V8 turbo changed Vantage GT3 at what turned out to be a rather wet Snetterton race track back in October, Graham Davidson has today confirmed his progression from first year graduate to potential championship contender with a deal to race one of TF Sport's new GT3 cars alongside AMR factory Jonny Adam in the 2019 British GT Championship.

Having stepped up from GT Cup at the end of 2017 as overall champion, Davidson teamed up with Jetstream Motorsport to run the former Motorbase V12 Vantage GT3 alongside AMR factory driver Maxime Martin. Originally planned to run with a very talented pay driver, the team finally elected for that crucial factory assistance and guidance that only a professional driver could bring that allowed the 'rookie' team finish seventh overall in the British GT Championship with a race win at Spa Francorchamps to boot.

Stepping up to a team like TF Sport with the latest GT3 machinery that the AMR factory have to offer, Davidson is already staking a claim to the overall British GT GT3 Championship crown potentially following in the footsteps of Flick Haigh, Derek Johnston and Andrew Howard and all of whom were coached at the time by AMR factory driver Jonny Adam.

Todays announcement confirms the first full driver line up for any of the new V8 Vantage GT3 cars after TF Sport announced Mark Farmers participation in the 2019 season in his new Vantage although his co driver is still yet to be confirmed.

Although Adam will be continuing in the 2018-19 World Endurance Championship with either the factory #97 car in GTE Pro or with the TF Sport GTE Am car in the shorter races, todays announcement of Adam again returning to the national championship does not necessarily mean that all the other AMR entries will have a factory co driver - we still wait for any kind of confirmation from AMR on that one.
