AMR GT4 participation ramping up in Europe ahead of season start

Tuesday, March 23, 2021


GT4 racing in both France and indeed in the rest of Europe is appearing to be stepping up another gear this week as teams start to confirm their respective 2021 programmes ahead of their season start in just a few weeks’ time.

Starting with a French team that we thought we had lost from last year as the JSB Competition confirm a return to their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 car that they had purchased ahead of the 2020, a season that turned out never to be for them as the today confirm a Pro-Am entry for team boss Julien Briche alongside Jean-Laurent Navarro in that car.

More familiar entrants in the supporting FFSA Tourism Championship and other TCR rules-based racing, todays confirmation of their GT4 entry into their national FFSA GT4 Series marks a significant step up for the team – albeit it a year late.

The above photograph was taken as the team canvassed for potential drivers at the final rounds of the 2019 season ahead of the next season which of course was decimated by the effects of COVID-19, after which the car was listed for sale on

This car joins the four cars already announced from the AGS Events Racing team as well as the single AMR Vantage GT4 entry from Mirage Racing and their Pro-Am entry for drivers Ruben Del Sarte and Yves Lemaitre which was also announced this week. AMR teams will now feature in each of the available Am, Pro-Am and Silver Cup Classes within the SRO Series.

These six Aston Martins will now feature within which will surely be another capacity grid at the Series opening round of the season at Nogaro at the start of April. 

If that wasn’t enough, the first in what is slated to be a series of announcements was confirmed by the AGS Events Racing team today for the parallel GT4 European Series and a new driver line up of Cesar Gazeau and Konstantin Lachenauer.

Winner of the FFSA GT4 Am Class last season, Gazeau joins Swiss born Lachenauer who himself steps up from single seaters having won overall in the Ultimate Cup Series last year.

This car joins at least another two Aston Martins from the AGS Events Racing team as well as entries from other teams returning to the Series who have yet to confirm. The closing date for entries into the GT4 European Series is on the 28th March with a full season entry list expected soon after and ahead of their first round at Monza in mid-April.

Sources have suggested an AMR entry greater in number to that of the FFSA GT4 Series!!!

Who can complain at that??!!
