Weekend round up of what to look forward to

Thursday, May 23, 2019

As the World Endurance Championship prepares for its super-season finale at Le Mans in under a months time, another hectic weekend of motor racing beckons for many Aston Martin Racing's customer and Partner teams around the world.

Starting on the far side of the world to where we are presently sitting sees D'Station Racing AMR return for the third round of the Japanese Super GT GT300 series looking to secure their first points of the season after having to retire with damage after the debut rounds at both Okayama and Fuji with their #7 AMR Vantage GT3.

Back into Europe and the International GT Open Series moves to the Hockenheim race track for the first time for their second round of the season after their opener at Paul Ricard.

Optimum Motorsport will be fielding a new driver combination aboard their AMR Vantage GT3 with young gun Ollie Wilkinson now being joined by AMR factory driver and driver coach (to Wilkinson) Darren Turner.

Last time out in France, Wilkinson and Bradley Ellis secured a Pro-Am podium with a P2 finish, only narrowly missing out on the top step after a great debut race in the Aston in lieu of their Audi R8 they raced last year.

Over at the Red Bull Ring in Austria, the German based DMV GTC Series have their third round of the season with another triple header of a 60 minute race and two shorter races with their older, no longer main stream homologated group of GT3 race cars.

Timo Scheibner returns with his #13 AMR V12 Vantage GT3 after starting so well with a trio of P4 finishes in round 1 before falling away with technical issues later in round 2.

German based PROsport Performance take their AMR Vantage GT4 race cars over to the Brno circuit in the Czech Republic for the latest round of the 24H Series event after a great P2 finish debut in Mugello before going one better last time out at Spa with a dominant class win.

Their trio of drivers will be looking to maintain the momentum already gained in this latest 12 hour race of the Series.

We wish them all well.
