Better late than never as R-Motorsport send two cars to GT4 European Series finale

Saturday, November 07, 2020


Swiss based Aston Martin Gallen and their R-Motorsport racing division where just one of many teams who were scheduled to compete in the highly competitive GT4 European Series this season with just one of their many 2019 specification Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage.

Shortly after the team announcing a full season entry for drivers Seb Perez and George Gamble, the effects of the CV-19 impact on many business plans and models sadly put paid to that entry (amongst many others) leaving the Series with a grid size nearly half of that previously enjoyed in better times.

With the Series coming to a conclusion next weekend from Paul Ricard in southern France, it’s great to hear that despite that country’s fresh CV-19 related lockdown that the finale of that Series and the GT World Challenge Europe Series that it supports can indeed continue to a natural conclusion but with some additional Aston Martin entries.

Having missed the five double header rounds so far, R-Motorsport are making a return to the series with not one but two AMR Vantage GT4’s – one for Messrs. Gamble and Perez and another for a corporate client of theirs who has used to the team and their driver coach Markus Lungstrass to reach a position in his driver development where they feel he is now ready to race competitively.

Danish cycle magnet Henrik Lyngbye-Pedersen joins Lungstrass aboard the #18 Am Class entry whilst Perez and Gamble compete in the Silver Cup aboard the #762 car who each tested recently at the Nürburgring and most recently at Silverstone this weekend.

These two cars join the two full season cars from the AGS Events Racing Team who are both chasing the overall crowns in both Silver Cup and in Am – they all in turn are due to be joined by a fifth Aston Martin yet to be confirmed by the Series.
