Further AMR team successes at the weekend from around the world

Monday, May 10, 2021


Although it may not have seemed to be the case but last weekend was yet another successful one for Aston Martin Racing’s Customer and Partner teams beyond those already mentioned with podium finishes being achieved all around the world.

Starting in Shanghai where the Chinese motor racing scene finally got back on track with the inaugural running of the GT Super Sprint Championship with the Evisu clothing magnate David Pun stepping up to the AMR Vantage GT3 for the very first time having only taken delivery of it just over week ago.

Competing in the event specially designed for the Gentleman driver, Pun would start the first of two 27-minute races form the front row on Saturday – converted a subsequently heavily Safety Car impacted race into a P2 finish before being elevated to a P1 result following a post-race penalty for the original #911 Porsche winner.

Then in Sunday’s race, Pun would make his return to competitive GT racing in China for the first time in over a year with a P4 finish.

Over at Road America, Florida based Automatic Racing had brought out one of their older AMR GT4 GA specification cars for their Stoner Car Care entry into last weekend’s World Racing Leagues 8 + 8 hour double header races for drivers Ramin Abdolvahabi, Rob Ecklin and Steven Davison.

Despite taking the chequered flag first by the end of Saturday’s eight hours, a post-race penalty for contact demoted them down to P3 before all was amended with a resounding P1 in Sundays follow up race.

All a bit of fun at Road America (and bit of circuit re-familiarisation) the team will sit out this weekend’s IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge event at Mid-Ohio instead choosing to reconvene at Watkins Glen in June.

Finally, but certainly by no means least saw the PROsport Racing AMR Vantage GT4 of Alex Walker and Guido Dumarey take a resounding P2 finish in the SP10 Class at the weekends ADAC Total N24 Qualification Race.

Having slowly built up confidence and speed during the NLS Series season so far, the Nico Verdonck coached drivers their best result to date from the Nordschliefe ahead of the main event in early June.
