The new British Endurance Championship hold their Official Test Day at Silverstone

Sunday, February 13, 2022


Saturday saw the Official Test Day of the recently announced British Endurance Championship from Silverstone with some interesting prospects in store from the Aston Martin family of teams and drivers.

Morphing from the Britcar Endurance Championship of old (and which will still operate this season) after its recently acquired Motorsport UK sanctioned status of a national series, the BEC will host a six-round season in its debut year, starting at Silverstone in mid-March and ending at Donington in late October.

Returning to the Championship (on what we believe to be on a full season basis this time) is Gleb Stepanov and his Venture prepared Aston Martin Vulcan that he, co-driver Stephen Tomkins and we believe third driver Matt George will drive.

Indeed, George was present yesterday testing the car at Silverstone ahead of a quick winter test in Spain/Portugal before the start of the new season.

Joining the biggest road car-based race car Aston Martin have recently made was also the smallest as T7 Motorsport again rolled out their new for 2022 AMR Vantage GT4 that AMOC Racing veteran Peter Montague will race alongside Stuart Hall and Dan Brown at some point in the year.

Also listed as joining the new Championship is Team Brit team who will field a different pair of drivers in their older iteration AMR Vantage GT4 with drivers Andrew Tucker and Luke Pound this time behind the wheel after Aaron Morgan and Bobby Trundley progress up to the British GT Championship in their new McLaren 570s.

They of course may be joined by other AMR powered teams ahead of the opening round on March 12th.
