Finishing off this weekends events in France and Japan

Thursday, October 01, 2020


Finalising the Aston Martin Racing customer team racing commitment for this weekend sees amongst others the AGS Events Racing Team take on the third round of the French national FFSA GT4 Championship from Paul Ricard and the fifth round of the Japanese Super GT Series from Fuji again for the Pacific D’Station Racing team.

Having already had two successful round of the FFSA GT4 Series from both Nogaro and Magny-Cours, the AGS Events team return to the series with another quartet of AMR Vantage GT4’s spread across the Am and Pro-Am classes.

Again running Pro-Am entries for the #69 car of Akhil Rabindra/Gilles Vannelet and the #89 car of Nicolas Gomar and Mike Parisy, there is this weekend a change in the Am class line up as drivers Eric Herr and Joseph Collado in their #10 car join team regulars Julien Lambert and Didier Dumaine in their #161 car.

With the #161 and #89 cars already having opened their FFSA GT4 account with class podiums apiece from the previous two rounds, both Vannelet and AMR Academy Driver Rabindra will be looking to secure their first silverware of the year now that the young Indian is back up to speed in the turbo charged Vantage GT4 having sat out for such a long time due to his own travel restrictions.

The 34 car entry will this weekend be running to a three race programme.

Over in Japan, the Series third racing visit of the year to Fuji Speedway sees them turn the corner into the homeward leg of the heavily revised season after COVID all but destroyed previous best laid plans enough for only three domestic circuits being viable to hold races of this magnitude.

Having raced their best race this year last time out at Twin Ring Motegi, the #9 Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 of Tomonobu Fujii and Kei Cozzolino were destined to secure a P4 finish before a final lap fuel issue robbed them of that reward – dumping them down to P18 at the end.

The duo again pair up for this fifth round of the Series amongst another grid of 29 GT300 cars and 15 GT500 cars.
