More wins with more Aston Martin GT4's for Rearden at Winter Invitational

Monday, January 20, 2020

Rearden Racing maintained their 100% track record at last weekend's second round of the SRO GT4 America Winter Invitational from The Thermal Club in California.

The difference this time around was that the team fielded a second brand new and CSJ Motorsport supplied Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 for yet another client of the team's to go with return of Jeff Burton's AMR GT4 that he debuted with a brace of race wins at the first round of the Winter Series back in mid December.

This Winter Invitational is, like its title suggests an off-season opportunity for the non-professional driver to compete against the same ability/grade opponents around the exclusive circuit of The Thermal Club in SRO homologated GT3, GT4 and GT2 classes as well as entries from the TC and TCR categories.

The opening round of the Series saw long term Rearden Racing customer Jeff Burton secure comfortable race wins in each of the weekends 40 minute sprint races but this weekend he had to share those accolades with fellow team driver Dimitri Novikov as the Russian split his race weekend between his brand new AMR GT4 and his brand new Audi R8 GT2.

Novikov won race 1 by a margin of over 11 seconds, a race within which Burton took himself out of contention with a mistake on track before the American came back to secure the GT4 class win by a massive 56 seconds in race 2 on Sunday whilst Novikov his first class win aboard his new GT2.

The final round of the series trilogy will be held at the circuit in three weeks time ahead of the formal start of the SRO GT4 America Series from the Circuit of the Americas in early March.

Happy Birthday Susan at CSJ !
