Volt and Archangel re-commit to another year of Michelin Pilot Challenge

Wednesday, December 16, 2020

Great to see the steady flow of confirmations from throughout the extended Aston Martin Racing family around the world being maintained, this time with Archangel and Volt Racing confirming their 2021 continuation within the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge with their AMR Vantage GT4.

Having swapped over from the Porsche chassis to the AMR in time for the final three rounds of the Michelin Pilot Challenge, a bruising DNF audition in the car at Road Atlanta in early October saw drivers Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman progress to take a much deserved P2 finish at the season finale at Sebring just a month ago with another podium in-between.

Yesterday saw the team confirm that Brynjolfsson and Hindman both return to the IMSA series full in the knowledge that their V8 turbo charged AMR is fully capable of winning both races and the Championship after Kohr Motorsport’s Nate Stacey and Kyle Marcelli did just that in 2020.

“It’s exciting to know we will have the continuity to keep building on our year ending success. We finished the GS season with back to back podiums and we would like to keep that going right into the next season” said Brynjolfsson.

2021 forms another ten round season for the Series, starting with official testing at the Roar before the 24 starting January 22nd before the first two hour race of the season at the Daytona International Speedway just a week later.

Hopefully, Archangel will be the first of many AMR runners to compete in the Michelin Pilot Challenge again next season – a season that starts again in just over a months time!!
