Appears 2021 will finish along similar lines as to how it started

Saturday, November 27, 2021


The 2021 motor racing season started with continuing restrictions in track attendance and travel and it sadly looks like it will see out the year that way as well as the last two major GT series of the year suffer further effects of the continuing global situation.

Whilst we were not expecting to see any Aston Martin Racing powered teams there, yesterday should have seen the entry list published for the fourth and final round (having already been scaled back for the same reason) of the Intercontinental GT Challenge next weekend from Kyalami in South Africa. 

Instead, we received confirmation of an indefinite postponement of that round due to fresh travel restrictions being imposed in and out of the country due to a new strain of CV-19 as the series assesses their options to move forward.

Earlier this week, we also had the entry list confirmed for the final round of the GT World Challenge Australia Series at Bathurst next week.

Again, another series heavily impacted by continuing CV-19 related travel restrictions within the country meaning that Tony Quinn and his #7 Local Legends V8 Powered AMR Vantage GT3 cannot be at the event to see out his Am Class Championship challenge from his third position and being just five points in arrears going into this final round.

Additionally, we have also seen a change of heart from the Mike Bailey/Trading Garage team as they swap from their V12 AMR Vantage GT3 to a Bentley GT3 Continental in the GT Trophy Series.

Smitten by both British built GT3 race cars, we understand that this was just a matter of preference between the two chassis for Bailey at Bathurst as he still retains more than one V12 platform back home!!

Good luck to them anyway!
