Two new Aston Martin Vantage GT3's to race at Macau Grand Prix

Thursday, November 11, 2021


This month’s Macau Grand Prix will mark a momentous event in the realms of Aston Martin Racing as the marque again gets represented at the prestigious event for the first time since 2015.

Racing back then with the venerable V12 variant of the Vantage GT3, the Craft Bamboo Racing team entered three such cars into the first running of what was then the FIA GT World Cup for drivers Stefan Mucke, Darryl O’Young and Richard Lyons for which Mucke claimed pole position for the weekend’s first race before eventually finishing P3 in both races.

This time in 2021 however, it is the turn of the Uno Racing Team with the assistance of the AMR appointed Motorsport Services Asia AMR crew to bring two of the latest V8 turbo charged Aston Martin Vantage GT3’s to the peninsula to race in the Sands China Macau GT Cup over the weekend of 19th-21st November.

Recently appointed GT Super Sprint Challenge Series runner up David Pun will be the driver of one of the cars with experienced GT racer Marchy Lee aboard the other.

Neither no stranger to the Macau street circuit, Pun last raced at the event in 2019 behind the wheel of an AMR Vantage GT4 from the Chinese based BSEM team (under his clothing firm’s Evisu Racing banner) where a last lap incident ruled out a podium finish for him but gained one for his then team mate.

Lee also comes with a long line of recent GT experience, racing before in single seaters and then in GT series such as Blancpain GT Asia, Asian Le Mans Series and the Japanese Super GT Series – mainly in an Audi R8 GT3 chassis.

These two Aston’s are due to compete in a provisional grid size of nineteen cars including a Mercedes AMG GT3 with O’Young aboard. The Uno Racing team have also had Adderly Fong driver coach Pun during the GTSSC season, and he was another driver who raced against the three Aston’s back in 2015!

Race one on Saturday afternoon is due to run over eight laps of the 3.8-mile street circuit with a further twelve lap race on Sunday.
