TF Sport confirm line up for Road to Le Mans entry

Friday, May 24, 2019

Sadly unable to defend her 2018 British GT Championship GT3 crown this season, Flick Haigh has had to so far restrict her own racing activities in 2019 to just a single, planned appearance in the Michelin Le Mans Cup’s Road to Le Mans races from the Circuit de La Sarthe at Le Mans later next month.

With her entry into the event already confirmed by the Series, today’s announcement from TF Sport sees Haigh join forces with the 2018 McLaren Autosport BRDC Award winner and Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe racer Tom Gamble in one of Tom Ferrier's 2019 specification Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3's for the two race format that supports the main World Endurance Championship event finale.

Previously coached by AMR factory driver Jonny Adam whilst racing with Optimum Motorsport in British GT last season with her own AMR Vantage V12 Vantage GT3, Haigh has already had one test session with the new variant of car race car at Anglesey under the watchful eye of Adam as well as in her older V12 Championship winning car at Silverstone before a more recent test from Spa Francorchamps, this time under the watchful eye of new AMR Junior driver and team WEC racer Charlie Eastwood.

We saw the pace of the 17 year old Gamble at the last round of the British GT Championship at Snetterton last weekend when he deputised for an injured Adrian Wilmott in the Century Motorsport BMW M6 GT3, claiming a race pole in the process for race 1 at the first time of asking.

Haigh and Gamble will join full season Le Mans Cup racers Beechdean AMR and their drivers Andrew Howard and Ross Gunn at the event and their two races run on Thursday evening and Saturday morning before the start of the WEC 24Hours of Le Mans.
