Ultimate Speed make it three AMR's in the British GT Championship

Wednesday, May 12, 2021

Not the best kept secret we know but welcome news none the less as today sees the Ultimate Speed team finally confirm their biggest commitment to the British GT Championship to date with a four-race programme in the national Championship that starts at the first round from Brands Hatch in little over two week’s time.

Having already been on the race track this season in the GT Cup Championship, the new Silver-Am partnership of Mike Brown and Matt Manderson will enter their 2019 specification Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 at the rounds at Brands Hatch, Donington, Snetterton before returning to see the year out at the #DoningtonDecider.

“We always enjoy our British GT outings – first and foremost we want to have fun so decided to increase our commitment this year after switching from old to new Vantage in 2020,” said Brown. “We should be closer to the established pairings with more testing and mileage, and Silver-Am really gives us something to aim at.” 

This car joins the somewhat low representation from the AMR marque with just the two cars already confirmed (so far) from the Beechdean AMR team with a GT3 car for Andrew Howard and Jonny Adam and also the most recent announcement from the Newbridge Motorsport team with an AMR Vantage GT4 for their drivers Matt Topham and Darren Turner.

More great news from the Championship also came to light yesterday with the availability of up to 4000 tickets to the Brands Hatch opener as part of the Governments releasing of COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings.

Tickets MUST be purchased in ADVANCE though.
