Four out of four AMR Class Pole Positions so far this weekend

Saturday, October 31, 2020

It’s a good start to this weekends round of motor racing with many of the Aston Martin Racing Partner and customer teams in action around the world.

Earlier today (European time at least) the D’Station Racing AMR team placed both their AMR Vantage GT3 and AMR Vantage GT4 at the head of their respective classes at their third round of the Pirelli Super Taikyu Series from the Okayama Circuit in Japan.

Whilst the four driver crew aboard the #47 Vantage GT4 have reaped the success of their efforts over the opening rounds, the #777 Vantage GT3 have had their early efforts quashed by early damage in the Series opening 24 Hour event at Fuji whilst late drama at the last, rain swept round at Sugo which robbed them of a probable class podium there.

Over at the Circuit de Catalunya in a now locked down city of Barcelona, the TF Sport AMR Vantage GT3 of Salih Yoluc and Charlie Eastwood have seen their early pace transferred into another overall pole position ahead of this afternoon’s feature race.

The #34 crew presently lay third in the Championship table ahead of this final round of the International GT Open Series and must really win today and hope for lower placed finishes from the McLaren and Mercedes ahead if that are to stand any chance of lifting the ultimate prize.

At the Lausitzring in Germany, the PROsport Racing #18 AMR Vantage of Tim Heinemann has taken overall pole position in today’s first one-hour race of the penultimate round of the ADAC GT4 Germany Series.

In another rain affected session, Heinemann comes into this event with co-driver Moritz Oestreich as a one-off entry in a series that the team first demonstrated the capabilities of the new AMR Vantage GT4 in last year.

Finally, and over at the Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca, both the Archangel, Kohr Motorsports and Heart of Racing AMR Vantage GT4 and GT3 cars respectively all go out in Qualifying later today European time ahead of their respective IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge and Weathertech Sportscar Championship events.
