GT4 revisits CoTA for penultimate round of their 2020 season

Sunday, September 13, 2020

The SRO GT4 America arrive back at the Circuit of The Americas next weekend for their penultimate event of the season having started there way back in early March before the global pandemic decimated both race calendars and race programmes across the country.

Again featuring both the Sprint and Sprint X races across its three day race programme, the Aston Martin Racing contingent will continue to be 'a man down' as the Roberts Racing AMR Vantage GT4 will sadly remain absent from the Series having raced at CoTA at the opening round of the season.

CoTA will also feature a slight change in the programme as instead of both the Sprint and Sprint X classes featuring 'catch up' triple header races, it will just be the Sprint Class who will have a third race on the Sunday.

The biggest topic across the GT4 field will be can Michael Dinan continue with his so far near 100% podium domination of the Sprint and Sprint X classes in his Flying Lizard prepared AMR Vantage that he races alone in Sprint and with Robbie Foley in Sprint X?

Not too far behind Dinan in the Sprint Class is the #59 Rearden Racing entry of Paul Terry who has been the only driver so far to push Dinan in their fifty minute races with his five podium finishes to Dinan's seven.

In Sprint, these two will be again joined by Jeff Burton in his (hopefully now fully repaired) #91 Rearden AMR Vantage after his very damaging crash in the concluding stages of race 1 last time out at Road America.

In the Sprint X class that features hour long, pit stop and driver change punctuated races, the #210 Flying Lizards entry for Dinan/Foley again leads the way for the AMR runners featuring second in the Championship table with more than a double points tally to their stablemates at BSport Racing, Rennsport 1 and Rearden Racing.

With the exception of Burton who suffered from crash damage and technical issues with both of his Aston Martins at Road America, that event proved itself to be a worthy one for the AMR teams as all brought home at least one podium finish over the triple header race meeting including a season first for the Rennsport 1 Notlad Racing #33 car of Matt Dalton and Pat Gallagher. These two also announced last week of their entry into the Indianapolis round of the SRO Intercontinental GT Challenge event at that circuit next month where the GT4 America Series concludes its 2020 season in support of the GT3/GT4 event.

The #15 BSport Racing Aston of Bryan Putt and AMR Drivers Academy racer Kenton Koch conclude the AMR entry for CoTA.
