Four weeks for Ian Lacey Racing to prepare their new AMR Vantage GT3 for GT World Challenge America Opener

Saturday, January 30, 2021

Whilst there are five teams continuing the Aston Martin Racing dreams at the Rolex 24 from Daytona this weekend, one team is only beginning its new racing relationship with the British marque as having accepted delivery of their brand new AMR Vantage GT3 only yesterday.

Confirmed by the GT World Challenge America Series as having stepped up from the Ford Mustang GT4 in the GT4 America Series to the larger GT3 based Series in time for the 2021 season, the Ian Lacey Team finally got their hands upon their new GT3 platform having had it safely flown into the States after its shakedown testing with Darren Turner on a freezing cold UK airfield earlier this month.

The team will compete in the revised format of GT World Challenge America as team drivers Drew Stavely and Frank Gannett this time join forces within the #12 car for the new season that starts at Sonoma at the beginning of March.

That leaves the time with little over four weeks to become accustomed with both the mechanics and driving characteristics of the new car. With two AMR factory drivers currently in the USA for the Rolex, it will be interesting to see if either (Darren Turner or Ross Gunn) will be sent to assist the team with this transmission in the coming weeks. Their racing endeavours will come under the covering assistance again of the CSJ Motorsport team.
