Next stop the Grand Prix D'Albi for the six AMR runners in FFSA GT4 Series

Tuesday, June 01, 2021


It’s another busy back-to-back racing weekend for the AGS Events and Mirage Racing teams as they leave their GT4 European Series commitments at Paul Ricard behind to prepare themselves for the third round of the FFSA GT4 Series at D’Albi, just a mere five-hour journey across the southern flank of France.

Having already competed at Nogaro and Magny-Cours for the opening four races of the season, the 2021 season is again proving to be another challenging year for the six Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 runners in all of the available Pro-Am, Silver and Am Classes that are available to them and despite podium finishes for some so far.

The AGS Events Racing team is again the largest AMR team in the series, fielding four cars for with single Aston’s apiece for the likes of Mirage Racing and JSB Competition.

The #007 Silver Cup car of Valentin Hasse-Clot and Romain Leroux head their class with three podiums and a DNF whilst in the Am Class, the #161 AGS car of Didier Dumaine and Christophe Carriere lead teammates Lauris Nauroy and Stephane Desbrosse in their #79 car by twelve points in P3 and P4 in Class respectively.

It is within the ultra-competitive Pro-Am class the three remaining runners are struggling with the #89 AGS car of Nicolas Gomar and Mike Parisy heading the bunch in P10 overall so far with the JSB Aston Martin of Julien Briche and Jean Laurent Navarro down in P17 and with the #38 Mirage car of Ruben del Sarte and Yves Lemaitre yet to score.

It will be interesting to see if the JSB Competition team return having withdrawn from the Magny-Cours event because of their apparent lack of pace rather than any specific incident or accident.

This weekend’s Grand Prix D’Albi again features two – one-hour races around this 3.5km circuit.
