Next up in Speedweek from Spa Francorchamps - GT4 European Series

Monday, July 26, 2021

So the first half of the SRO Speedweek went well for the Aston Martin Racing entries from both the British GT Championship and the FFSA GT4 Series and we can now look forward to even more of the same (plus some) as the GT4 European Series and GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup set up shop at Spa Francorchamps in time for the TotalEnergie Spa 24 weekend.

The GT4 European Series reconvenes in Belgium after a four-week break since their last round at Zandvoort in the middle of June. Now at Spa for their fourth round of six this week, the Series expects a grid of over forty GT4 cars to certainly start the early officially timed sessions of Thursday (after private testing on Tuesday) before the real business begins on Friday afternoon with race 1 and race 2 on Saturday before the start of the 24hrs for the GT3 pack.

A productive round last time out in Holland for the Aston Martin runners from both the AGS Events Racing Team and the Street Art Racing crew who claimed podium positions in both Silver Cup and the Am Class respectively with a further podium in race two for the #27 AGS car.

After their success at Spa for the French AGS Events team in the FFSA GT4 Series will be keen to make use of their prior circuit knowledge of last week ahead of their marque stable mates from the Mirage Racing (who were also at the FFSA meeting) and the Street Art Racing teams. The #18 Racing One AMR of Marcus Lungstrass and Henrick Lyngbye Pedersen is NOT listed on the entry list we understand for personal reasons, but their place is taken by a cameo appearance again from the PROsport Racing team.

Having raced at the Lausitzring in the German DTM Trophy Series at the weekend, PROsport will have some preparatory work to undertake after having one car damaged in a high-speed accident during yesterday’s race and the other massively underpowered. Their #63 car will again be crewed by Rodrigue Gillion and Nico Verdonck in the Pro-Am Class.

A decent result for any Aston crew will be vitally important moving onto the fifth round at the next round (? Nurburgring under threat due to ongoing flood relief efforts in that part of Germany) as no AMR crew sits higher than forth in their table and more than fifty points behind.

Like the FFSA GT4 races before it last weekend, we expect the two GT4 European Series races to be equally entertaining and eventful.
