Beechdean AMR confirm all silver attack on British GT

Thursday, January 30, 2020

Situated within an Aston Martin dealership in a side street of central Paris tonight saw Beechdean AMR become the latest team to confirm a 2020 British GT campaign with an all new silver-silver driver line up aboard their Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3.

First put out there by team boss Andrew Howard back at the Brands Hatch round of the domestic GT Championship last year, saw a commitment being made by Howard and his race team to investment more in future racing talent having just obtained the racing services of a young Frenchman who had been unceremoniously cast aside by another team in Central Europe earlier in the year.

Bravely electing not to continue with the co-driver services of AMR World Endurance Championship factory driver Marco Sorensen after his mammoth accident at last years Le Mans 24, Howard took Valentin Hasse-Clot under his wing for a two race introduction in the finale of last seasons British GT Championship at both Brands Hatch and Donington Park - a process that clearly grabbed the eye of both Howard and others within the AMR family as to his potential to make him a swift sign up for 2020.

At this time, Howard also spoke of the fact that the next Beechdean AMR car may or may not even have himself aboard it as he turns to a more business arrangement for himself within his own team rather than taking it as a given for his presence aboard a car the bears his company name - that is very much the case in tonights announcement.

Stepping up from last year's endeavours see's Alex Toth-Jones change from Academy Motorsport and their new AMR Vantage GT4 to Beechdean and the larger, more powerful GT3 platform for an all Silver rated driver attack on the Silver Cup - a title won last years by Optimum Motorsport and their AMR Vantage GT3.

Part of the AMR Drivers Academy intake of last year, Toth-Jones will have presumably impressed those back at the factory during that driver development process enough , together with his performances during his 2019 British GT GT4 campaign for Beechdean to have the confidence in him to step up to GT3 racing.

The British GT 2020 season again starts on its customary Easter Bank Holiday weekend up at the Oulton Park circuit over the 11-13th April. Media Day is at Snetterton at the beginning of March and somewhere in between will be plenty of test mileage!!
