David Pittard confirmed as AMR works rostered driver for 2022

Monday, January 24, 2022


David Pittard (GBR) makes his works Aston Martin Racing debut in the Rolex 24 this weekend as part of NorthWest AMR’s Vantage GT3 GTD class line-up, having become the latest driver to join the AMR works roster.

The 29-year-old Briton, who turns 30 on race day, is well established as a rising international GT star following excellent performances in the Nürburgring Langstrecken Serie, where he is a multiple race-winner and holds the Nordschleife GT3 lap record. Pittard also produced regular stand-out performances during a four-year stint with established GT outfit Walkenhorst Motorsport in the Fanatec GT World Challenge and Intercontinental GT Challenge.

He will make his FIA World Endurance Championship and 24 Hours of Le Mans debut for NorthWest AMR alongside double GT world champion Nicki Thiim and 2017 GTE Am world champion Dalla Lana in a Vantage GTE at Sebring in March, but before that he joins the duo (and Charlie Eastwood) at Daytona.

“I’m excited and proud to have signed for Aston Martin Racing,” said Pittard. “My goal is to win the biggest endurance GT races and with Aston Martin I have the platform and the machinery to achieve this. I welcome the challenge of adapting to a new manufacturer, new championships and new tracks, but Aston Martin Racing is one of the best organisations in the business so I’m confident this will be a short and painless process. Having team-mates like Paul and Nicki – one of the fastest GT drivers on the planet – will certainly help.

“I’m looking forward to racing the Vantage, which has proved a world class champion in both GTE and GT3 specification, and I’m glad Daytona has come around so soon in the year so I can get started right away.”

Head of Customer Racing Huw Tasker, added: “We are delighted to have signed David as a works Aston Martin Racing driver. He has showed enormous potential in and out of the car for a

while, so it is good for us to have secured his services. He joins a strong crew at NorthWest AMR in WEC and also Daytona, and this should give him a bright start to his career with us. We look forward to seeing what he can achieve with Vantage.”
