British GT - Academy Motorpsort

Tuesday, March 05, 2019

The identity of Academy Motorsport's second Aston Martin Racing GT4 finally came to our attention by accident last night when the British GT Championship inadvertently confirmed that both Will Moore and Alex Both-Jones will compete together aboard the team's #62 car. They join Micah Stanley and Ben Hurst in the #61 car who were confirmed by the team some weeks ago.

2019 makes a significant year with Matt Nichol-Jones and his Academy Motorsport team with significant investments being made in new race cars, transporters and garage tools and equipment as he looks to continue with his status of being the biggest customer AMR GT4 team in the European market. This year will see him continue with his parallel race programme in both British GT and GT4 European Series with drivers not yet fully confirmed.


Will Moore is no stranger to the team having raced with Nichol-Jones many times before in the national GT Championship and abroad - he was supposed to have taken a business enforced sabbatical in 2019 but presumably the lure of a brand new AMR GT4 race car was enough for him to think twice. He is joined by former Ginetta GT5 racer Alex Both-Jones - a name you may recall as being first associated with TF Sport at the tail of last year but like all deals, nothing is confirmed until everything is agreed to and signed off by the stakeholders concerned.


The team received their first car from the factory last week (proudly bearing the chassis number #001) which they shook down at Silverstone but move on today the British GT Championship Media Day with just a single car.

Two new cars, three new drivers and a bunch of people who just love to go motor racing - what more is their to life!!
