Success for Aston Martin Racing at ADAC Zurich N24 Qualifying race

Monday, May 20, 2019

A productive weekend was had by Aston Martin Racing and their two V8 Vantage GT4's at Sundays Qualification Race ahead of the main ADAC Zurich 24H event later in June.

Having already ran their new 2019 specification at a VLN Series event earlier in the year, this was the first time that the team had run two new chassis with most of the members of their driver line up that shall compete in the N24 as part of a full factory effort in the SP8T (GT4) class.

Due to prior commitments from others and contrary to previous entry lists, AMR factory driver Darren Turner would end up on double driving duties aboard each of the #36 and #37 cars amongst the ninety eight cars that started the race's own qualifying process on Saturday morning. Joining Turner aboard the #36 car would be customer team Garage 59 racers Chris Harris and Chris Goodwin whilst in the #37 car would be Peter Cate and Alex Brundle.

Starting Sundays six hour race from rows 21 and 22 of the first group of starters, both cars cycled through their stints to end up with the #37 finishing just ahead of the #36 in 31st and 32nd positions overall and P2 and P3 in class out of six runners. No prizes to be won here this time but some valuable experience and data to be had by all as their attention no turns to the main event.

The full N24 event itself takes place over the weekend after Le Mans 24!
