Changes ahead of next weekend's action

Friday, May 07, 2021

Ahead of next weekend’s third round of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and supporting Michelin Pilot Challenge from Mid-Ohio and the second round of the European Le Mans Series from the Red Bull Ring in Austria sees a couple of necessary changes take place on either side of the Atlantic to accommodate a recent announcement.

With the news released by the team only earlier this week of Ross Gunn being promoted to second full-time co-driver to Roman de Angelis aboard the #23 Heart of Racing Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GTD in their quest to take the GTD crown, the news obviously came at cost to the TF Sport’s AMR Vantage GTE effort in the ELMS that Gunn is/was a part of.

With Gunn now being require in the USA next weekend, his place aboard the #95 TF Sport AMR Vantage GTE will be taken by fellow AMR factory driver, Jonny Adam who will pair up with season regulars John Hartshorne and Ollie Hancock for next weekend’s four-hour race fresh from his GT World Challenge Europe Sprint exploits this weekend from Magny-Cours in France.

They will race again in the GTE class of nine cars that makes up next weekend’s forty-one car grid.

Back in the United States, and whilst the Heart of Racing Vantage GTD remains the sole Aston in that headlining event, the supporting Michelin Pilot Challenge race next weekend will feature just one AMR Vantage GT4 this time around.

Currently busy racing at the latest round of the World Racing League at Road America, the usual Stoner Car Care AMR Vantage entry of Rob Ecklin and Ramin Abdolvahabi will be missing from the entry list of Mid-Ohio leaving just the #7 Volt Racing with Archangel Motorsport Aston Martin of Alan Brynjolfsson and Trent Hindman.
