Time passing galleries Part 8 AMR Festival 2015

Sunday, May 03, 2020

Forty two race cars were initially entered into the second edition of the Aston Martin Racing Festival for the 2015 24 Hours at Le Mans World Endurance Championship support race.

Made up mainly of a plethora of both Vantage GT4's, Vantage GT3's with various Invitational variants in between, the balance of the grid was made of Vantage GTE's (GT2) as well as cameo appearances from RoFGo's Lola DBR1-2 and Aston Martins then new GT12 car.

Despite the glorious weather over the race week, Saturday's race sadly ended behind the Safety Car as  the GT4 entry from 22GT Racing ended up hard into the armco barrier coming out of Tetre Rouge on only his third lap. That incident lead to a prolonged Safety Car period before the race was ultimately red flagged due to barrier repairs needs before the start of the WEC 24hr race later that afternoon.

Paul White and Tom Onslow Cole in then his Bilstein liveried GT3 were adjudged to have won overall (with a degree of controversy) what little racing there had been with further class honours for Andrew Howards Beechdean AMR GTE and Derek DeBoer in his TRG-AMR winning GT4.

The biggest 'winner' was of course the return of the Gulf liveried Lola P1 screaming its way around the iconic circuit again. Further details of the race can be found HERE

Whilst the CoronaVirus lockdown and restricted movement continues in many countries around the world, we just hope that these galleries with photos in no particular order help (just a tiny bit) in relieving any boredom and wets the appetite for a return to motor racing some time soon.
