GT4 European Series sees out its 2021 season in Spain with another SEVEN Aston Martins (UPDATED)

Tuesday, October 05, 2021


Like so many others at the moment, the GT4 European Series also draws to a conclusion this weekend as they race out their final two races of their 2021 season at the Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya.

Five rounds, ten races later so far and most of the Championship titles have already been decided or if they haven’t, none sadly involve the six Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4 crews that will see out their season in Spain.

Hopes were high at the beginning of the series back at the first round at Monza on mid-April when the AGS Events Racing, Mirage Racing, Street Art Racing and Racing One teams confirmed their participation across the available Am, Pro-Am and Silver Cup classes but again the series and formula has proved just how competitive it is these days and for some of these drivers, they will leave with nothing to show but memories and the experience for their efforts.

Many of them have of course claimed class podiums along the way and that is about as good as it could get for them this weekend as the series again supports the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup Series this weekend.

Continuing their same full season partnerships, the only change in order seems to be the #45 AGS Events Racing car as Gilles Vannelet again replaces Akhil Rabindra (as he did last time out at the Nurburgring) in their now reassigned Pro-Am car entry with Hugo Conde.

Completing the French AGS Events team line-up will be team boss Nicolas Gomar and Eric Herr in their AM class #89 Aston with a pairing that certainly grabbed our eye with the potential (but unfortunately not the luck) in their #27 Silver Cup car with Cesar Gazeau and Konstantin Lachenauer. 

Gomar and Herr are the only Aston Martin runners this weekend with a mathematical chance of taking a runner’s up position in their Am class should they take maximum points this weekend and others above them score poorly or fail to finish.

Young drivers Ruben Del Sarte has certainly progressed with the help of AMR driver Tom Canning in their Silver Cup #38 Mirage Racing Aston as well has Paul Theysgens and his Am class #7 Street Art Racing car and racing under the watchful eye of Pascal Bachmann. 

The #18 Racing One Am class Aston Martin of Henrick Lyngbye Pedersen and Marcus Lungstrass have also shown that age is not always a barrier to success after they collected a podium finish along the way in their ‘not complete’ full season of running.

Whatever happens, it’s been another great season of European GT4 racing at its very best with stars of the future clearly proving their worth so the two races will be fun to watch on-line via the series social media channels with race 1 on Saturday afternoon and race 2 Sunday morning.


Well that post didn't age very well as just 24 hours later we have it confirmed that there will in fact be SEVEN Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4's at this final round at Barcelona after a little bit of seat shuffling. All crews remain as previously stated except for the following:-

Revised crew & class

#45 AGS Events Racing Silver Cup: - Hugo Conde and Hugo Roch
