Two AMR GT3's in opening round of GT World Challenge Australia this weekend

Tuesday, March 09, 2021

Good news today as it appears that we shall be seeing the return of Tony Quinn as well as a surprise entry back into motor racing this season down under as the new for 2021 GT World Challenge Australia Series kicks starts itself back into action after a year-long COVID-19 induced hiatus.

As far as we are aware Quinn’s 2019 Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 has only the hit the racetrack twice in its existence – once at the Spa Francorchamps round of the British GT Championship in July 2019 when he shared the car with Darren Turner and subsequent to that at Mount Panorama where Quinn participated in the official test at the Australian circuit ahead of the 2020 Bathurst 12Hr.

With the Series now having swapped control to the SRO, Quinn enters his AMR GT3 as a solo driver within their new Am Championship Class in a mixed class field of twenty cars which starts at Phillip Island this weekend where he will be joined by a 2014 V12 iteration of the AMR Vantage GT3 at the hands of Michael Bailey behind the wheel in the Am Trophy Class.

If our memory serves us correctly, Bailey’s car was shipped over to Australia late last year having been sold to him by V12 Vantage GT3 aficionado Alexander Lienau.
