Brake failure denies Prosport Competition first win with 'new' Aston Martin GT4

Tuesday, April 13, 2021


Another GT endurance racing series came to our attention at the weekend as the Prosport Competition team entered one of their older iteration of Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 (Grand Am specification) cars into the World Racing League.

Featuring twelve events across their National Championship, Prosport entered their first round of the season (round three at Mid-Ohio) for two back-to-back eight-hour endurance races with a four driver line up aboard their #143 car.

Despite some Balance of Performance gripes ahead of Saturdays eight hours, the #143 soon came through the field of forty-five other cars to lead the race overall for much of the time until brake caliper failure took them behind the wall to deny them a deserved win with just twenty laps remaining.

In Sunday’s race and despite starting from third on the grid sadly saw early technical issues with the former TRG-AMR car that eventually saw it classified as a DNF some 120 laps down to the eventual winner.

The next 8+8hr round of the series is at the Circuit of the America’s at the beginning of May.
