Four Aston Martin's to see out 2021 GT Cup Championship season from Snetterton

Monday, September 27, 2021

The GT Cup Championship holds its final meeting of their 2021 season this weekend from the Snetterton racetrack in Norfolk with a larger than usual entry list for their final four races of the year which includes one or two returning names from the Aston Martin Racing extended family of teams and drivers.

Last time out two weeks ago from Donington Park was something of a ‘win some – loose some’ weekend for the two-season long AMR Vantage GT4 entries from Century Motorsport and Feathers Motorsport. 

One lowly result from four races including two DNF’s and one DNS for the #82 Feathers GTH Class car of James Guess and Tom Canning kind of summed up their weekend after accident damage was sustained in that weekends opening sprint race whilst the #15 Century prepared car of David Holloway and Bradley Ellis did at least punctuate their two mid class finishes with a podium P2 finish in the weekends first pit stop race before also finishing that weekend off with a DNF of their own.

Both cars are back this weekend to see out their season in this championship but with Darren Turner returning to the Feathers team having skipped another round due to his commitments at the Goodwood Revival that weekend. Sadly, neither car are now in any championship standing of note so for these four drivers it will be a simple matter of Gentleman pride being at stake!!

Joining them in Norfolk will be the return of the Ultimate Speed Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 of Mike Brown and Matt Manderson in their #47 car after their last run out in the Championship at the circuit back in early June.

Completing the AMR contingent within the thirty-six car entry is the #72 24-7 Motorsport AMR GT4 N24 car of Chris Murphy and Michael Coker. Whilst Murphy is a regular GT Cup campaigner, we have only seen Coker out once before in his (then) Valour Racing prepared Aston at the Silverstone round of the Britcar Endurance Championship.

This final round will again be made up of four races – one sprint for the Am driver and one pit stop punctuated race over Saturday and Sunday.
