Two older gen. Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 race out the WRL season at a 24hr from Sebring

Thursday, October 28, 2021

Two older generation Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4’s will take to the track of the Sebring International Raceway this weekend in what will become the World Racing League’s first continuous twenty-four race in its history.

For those of you who may not be aware of this series, the series specialises in low cost, endurance races around many of the iconic circuits that North America has to offer with next years calendar again featuring race weekends like an 8Hr + 8Hr, 9hr + 7Hr or a 14hour long races at places like Sebring, CoTA, VIR, Daytona, Mid-Ohio and Road America to name just a few.

Two Aston Martin teams have been dipping in and out of this year’s calendar so far this year and both return to see the season out with the biggest race yet.

We have already heard of the Prosport Competition team turning up this weekend with their #143 GTO classed AMR Vantage GT4 GA spec car with drivers including Pippa Mann, Zach Arnold, Jim Cox and Dwayne Moses.

Also confirmed in joining in the multi-class entry of over fifty cars is the #909 Automatic Racing AMR Vantage GT4 entry for the ‘regular bunch’ of Rob Ecklin, Ramin Abdolvahabi, Brandon Kidd, Steven Davison and maybe even Automatic Racing’s boss David Russell.

Friday sees the teams have up to four hours of testing ahead of the start of the 24hr at noon on Saturday. There is usually a live stream available via the series social media channels, but these are sometimes limited to just circuit cameras.

What a great way to see out the season!
