Next intake of the AMR Drivers Academy revealed

Wednesday, May 19, 2021


The fourth intake of participants for the latest season of the Aston Martin Racing Drivers Academy has been confirmed by the team today with another group of fifteen eligible drivers eager to reach the mantle previous claimed by the likes of Ross Gunn, Tom Canning and last year, Valentin Hasse-Clot.

Again featuring drivers between the ages of 17 to 26 years old, this group of fifteen potentials feature in GT series being raced through from North America and over to Europe in both the AMR Vantage GT3 and Vantage GT4 platforms but with sadly just one competing in the UK.

A reflection of the times maybe, but the many AMR customer teams that have already started upon their 2021 seasons and keeping us busy have already been rewarded with multiple class wins and overall race podiums for their effort so far.

Some of these names will be familiar from previous season’s but they have come back to the Academy to further develop their racing skills with the help that this factory selection process can provide them.

Aston Martin Racing President David King added: “The Aston Martin Racing Driver Academy has proven itself a key indicator of talent in recent years, and we see it as a vital development tool. As Ross, Tom and now Valentin are proving, this initiative holds great value both to us and to the drivers who participate, as we seek to build on the talent that exists inside our network of customer teams. We intend to continue this tradition as we look to support our partners across the GT racing spectrum in every way that we can.” 

Judged again by the likes of AMR President David King, MD John Gaw, Le Mans winner and multiple British GT Champion Jonny Adam as well as Ross Gunn and Valentin Hasse-Clot – it will be more than the result sheet that these young individuals will need to satisfy in order to come out on top.

The prize on offer for the successful graduate includes financial support towards their 2022 race programme, as well as assistance and guidance from the factory, tailored to their season plans.
