UPDATED - AMR’s latest recruit also a winner in GT4 America Winter Invitational

Sunday, December 15, 2019

Whilst the Aston Martin Racing factory teams were busy showing the world what competitive GT racing is all about, the latest member to the #teamAMR family was quietly going about their 'winter business', claiming their first race win at the first time of asking.

Regular competitors within what is now SRO sanctioned GT World Challenge GT4 America Series, California based Rearden Racing have added a brand new AMR Vantage GT4 to their arsenal of GT4 machinery for one of their racing regulars, Jeff Burton to 'have a go with' in this series official winter invitational.

Racing under the watchful eye of those at CSJ Motorsport (AMR's strategic partners in the USA and who brokered this deal with the team) from The Thermal Club in California, the Rearden Racing driver first claimed pole and then ran a lights to flag victory in the first of two races this weekend in his new #19 car.

Three rounds of this invitation only event have been specifically designed for the Bronze rated drivers to race amongst equals and get the valuable track experience that would hopefully take them up into a full GT4 America commitment. This weekends event will be followed by another double header in mid January before being rounded off in early February.

We have already heard of the increased interest with the new AMR hardware within the American markets and with another series competitor racing with another AMR Vantage GT4 over in the Gulf 12hr with Optimum Motorsport, maybe that will lead to a few more sales for CSJ Motorsport as the American series' look to kick off their 2020 campaigns early next year.

The final race of this weekends meeting took place later today and it appears that Burton did the double with two race wins on his first AMR race weekend!!.
