A busy weekend of motorsport ahead from France

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

A super busy weekend of racing activity comes our way this weekend with both the extended six hour round of the Blancpain GT Endurance Cup Series from the Paul Ricard circuit on Saturday running back to back with the start of the FIA WEC Le Mans 24 Hour Official Test Day on Sunday.

For many drivers within the Aston Martin Racing fold, that means another frantic overnight dash across France to be at Le Mans in time for the start of morning test around the Circuit de La Sarthe the next day.

With the provisional entry lists for both events still showing the driver line ups of  Garage 59, R-Motorsport and Oman Racing with TF Sport cars being made up of 33% of drivers who will also be required to be at Le Mans for the test either by the factory squad or TF Sport, there will be many hands consistently clock watching going into Saturday evening hoping that nothing delays their flight back north.

We recall that TF Sport's British GT racing driver Mark Farmer has regularly provided the preferred mode of transport for many of these drivers in between circuits over recent years! The cars particularly affected will be the #97 factory GTE Pro and the TF Sport GTE Am car.

On top of all this we also have the third round of the GT4 European Series and the seven Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4's entered into that double header weekend.
