A tough weekend for the AMR runners at Snetterton in GT Cup

Sunday, June 06, 2021


Just a single trophy the sum reward for all the effort from the four Aston Martin Racing customer teams at Snetterton this weekend as they continued battle in the GT Cup Championship.

With trophies a plenty and won all round at the opening round at Donington Park in mid-April and another at the restricted programme second round at Brands Hatch at the beginning of May, Snetterton left Ultimate Speed Racing’s AMR Vantage GT3, Feathers Motorsport, Century Motorsport and Whitebridge Motorsport AMR Vantage GT4’s all having ‘wanted’ a little something to break into the podium positions during this weekend’s four race programme.

Not even the presence of the 2019 British GT GT4 Champion Tom Canning, deputising for Darren Turner within the Feathers team with James Guess was enough to break the stalemate – well until the final pits stop race of the weekend where the #82 car eventually secured a P2 finish within the GTH class.

David Holloway again had Bradley Ellis with him aboard their #15 car and the best that they could do was a P4 finish in class during Saturday’s pit stop race whilst Chris Murphy learned more about his ex. David Appleby Engineering AMR Vantage GT4 having only acquired it in time for the round at Brands Hatch.

The #47 Ultimate Speed Vantage GT3 car of Mike Brown gave a good representation of himself but again lacked that little punch that his normal co-driver Matt Manderson would have brought to the car but still, they had a good meeting despite some very close attention from some competitors.

With the Championship season still young, it is still too early for teams to think too hard about the end goal as the Championship moves onto Oulton Park in a month’s time.
