Academy confirm second car in GT4 European Series

Monday, March 11, 2019

Only late last ween did Worcester based Academy Motorsport confirm the first of two new Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4's that they would be entering into the SRO's GT4 European Series with team returnees Tom Wood and Fiona James sharing the first car in Pro-Am.

Today sees the team announce the line up for their second car with single seater convertee Matt Cowley finally being able to make his announcement - he will partner (as things stand today) team boss Matt Nichol-Jones in the second car unless another driver comes along and signs up at the last minute. Interested parties should contact Academy Motorsports directly.

Having taken the traditional motorsport development route of karting before going into single seaters in 2013, Manchester born Cowley has seen success both at home and in the USA where he competed last year in the FIA F4 US Series whilst under the watchful eye of the Andy Priaulx Sports Management programme. 2019 will be his first experience of GT racing.

Having first tested the new AMR Vantage GT4 at the collective test day with the AMR team at Oulton Park in November last year and again more recently at Silverstone, todays announcement and the possession of the two new cars within the team finally allows all the squads to go testing without restriction.

The GT4 European Series kicks off its six round series in just a months time in Monza.
