Just three AMR Vantage GT3's to grace the grids of the Asian Le Mans Series next month

Monday, January 31, 2022

It was supposed to be a mighty six Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 effort into this year’s Asian Le Mans Series double header of races at both the Dubai Autodrome and the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi but today’s entry list confirmation leaves things a little further short of that number again.

First, we had the unexpected news just before Christmas of a change in allegiance from the Garage 59 team from what was supposed to another two AMR car effort again this year to a new two car McLaren effort for their drivers and customer base.

Today, we have now seen confirmed the suspected withdrawal of the Evisu Racing AMR GT3 entry from David Pun’s racing empire – most likely sadly still due to the ongoing travel restrictions for anyone flying in and out of China due to their COVID-19 entry/exit requirements.

That leaves us with just the three TF Sport supported entries for both Oman Racing with TF Sport and D’Station Racing as well as their own entry for a returning customer aboard their three Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 entries who will now all compete amongst a now reduced entry list of thirty-six LMP2, LMP3 and GT3 cars, of which the GT’s make up for twenty-three of them.

Today’s news does however confirm that Tom Gamble will again partner the #77 D’Station Racing GT3 effort alongside team boss Satoshi Hoshino and ‘resident’ team professional Tomonobu Fujii in their sveltely liveried green Aston.

They join John Hartshorne, Jonny Adam and Henrique Chaves aboard the #95 TF Sport entered car as well as Ahmad Al Harthy, Charlie Eastwood and Sam De Haan aboard the #69 Oman Racing entry as already confirmed by the team.

Racing starts over the weekend of the 12th and 13th February in Dubai before concluding over the following weekend at Yas Marina.
