Last competitive track run out before the Spa 24 for Garage 59

Wednesday, June 30, 2021

It’s been something of a hectic three-week window for the Garage 59 Aston Martin Racing team coming off the back of the second round of the GT World Challenge Europe Sprint Cup at Zandvoort, through a two-day official test at Spa Francorchamps ahead of the Total Spa 24 and into the third round of the Sprint Cup this weekend in Misano.

The two races in Holland were something of a mixed bag for the teams Pro-Am and Silver Cup entries as the #188 Pro-Am car of Alex West and Jonny Adam claimed a P4 finish in Race whilst the #159 Silver Cup car of Tuomas Tujula and Nicolai Kjaergaard suffered from race ending damage just after their stop after great earlier work from the Finn.

Sunday’s second hour long race was slightly better as the #159 managed a finish albeit down in P8 in class but the #188 car did secure a P2 podium finish in class to keep their Championship hopes alive as they move into P4 in the Class, eleven and a half points behind the leaders.

This weekend sees a record breaking 29 car entry – sadly no more Aston Martins but more than enough ‘equally’ balanced machinery to provide another great racing spectacle. After that - its next stop Spa!!
