AGS Events Racing take clean sweep at GT4 European Series finale

Saturday, November 14, 2020


Less than twenty-four hours after the winners of the 2020 IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge became the latest of a growing line of Championship winners scooping their ultimate prize with their Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4, French based team AGS Events Racing secured all three Championship titles available to them in this weekends GT4 European Series finale.

New to the AMR platform for the season and having ran up to four cars in a busy GT4 European Series and the FFSAGT4 Series dual programme, all their #89 Am Class and #27 Silver Cup Class cars had to do today during the penultimate hour-long race of the final race weekend from Paul Ricard was to finish in front of their respective championship rivals in order to win.

For Nicolas Gomar and Gilles Vannelet, that they did in emphatic fashion by claiming yet another Am Class victory, their sixth of the season to wind up a near perfect inaugural season for them with the Aston Martin to secure their Championship win without the need for any points in this evening’s final race of the year which they co-incidentally won in class anyway!!

Doing likewise, although not with another overall race win in race 1 was the #27 Silver Cup Class car of Theo Nouet and Valentin Hasse-Clot who clinched their overall title after an eventful and (in hindsight) vital fourth place finish in this morning’s race but importantly finishing ahead of their nearest championship rivals. That proved to be just as well as the #27 later failed to finish in this evenings final night race.

Combined, the performances of both cars were also enough for the AGS Events Racing Team to take a commanding season win in the Overall Teams Championship as well to make that three out of three.

This weekend also saw two AMR Vantage GT4’s from the R-Motorsport stable and another from AGS Events Racing team make their first ever appearances in the GT4 European Series – one for the originally intended full season effort of Seb Perez and George Gamble as well as a racing debut for Danish businessman Henrik Lyngbye Pedersen and his driver coach Markus Lungstrass for a taster of might have been.

Not quite finished for the year, the AGS Events Racing team return to Paul Ricard next weekend where they will race out the final races of the FFSA GT4 Series with an outside change of a Class Championship in that one for Gomar and Mike Parisy.
