This weeks Aston Martin GT4 news

Wednesday, February 09, 2022


As this week cruises along nicely to the opening double header race weekend of the Asian Le Mans Series at the Dubai Autodrome, here’s a quick look back on some of this week’s news from Aston Martin Racing powered teams around the world.

Starting off in Germany, the Dorr Motorsport team have confirmed the line-up of their fourth AMR Vantage GT4 that they shall be entering this season within their domestic ADAC GT4 Germany Series.

Stepping up from the ADAC Kart Masters Series has the seventeen-year-old twin brothers Sandro and Juliano Holzem take to the wheel of a GT car for the first time between them having each spent the last three years developing their race craft in karts.

They join two other Astons already confirmed with Ben Dorr partnering Romain Leroux and Nico Hanke partnering Simon Connor Primm whilst Phil Dorr’s co-driver remains yet to be confirmed in another European series that will feature a high number of Aston Martin GT4’s this season.

Over in the USA, we have the SRO GT America Series getting ready for their first rounds of the season at the St Petersburg Grand Prix in two weeks’ time for which we have at least two drivers getting ready for that as well as the GT4 America Series that kicks off a few weeks later.

Down at Sebring, we have the Bsport Racing Team getting ready with their new for 2022 pair of Aston Martin’s that Bryan Putt and Kenton Koch will be racing together (and in the case of the GT America series solo for Putt at St Petersburg).

We also have Aaron Povoledo and Ross Chouest racing this weekend with the Prosport Competition team as the WRL Series gets back to business at the Nola Motorsport Park in Louisiana for their first 8 + 8-hour weekend of the new year.

Both Povoledo and Chouest are also expected to return to the SRO GT Series with a two AMR Vantage GT4 effort in both the GT America and GT4 America Series this season as they get in some early season race mileage with Prosport Competition alongside drivers Zack Ping and Matt Rivard.

The entry list did also list the AMR from the Automatic Racing – Stoner Car Care crew again but that has since been corrected as a ‘no show’ by the team.

Finally, the NTE Sport Corsa Horizon Aston Martin Vantage GT4 that entered the opening round of the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series opener at Daytona two weeks ago has now apparently had a new engine fitted after they broke the bottom of it during their four-hour series audition to be ready for some testing at Sebring later this week. 

That will come in time for their next round of the MPC series at the circuit next month having recently confirmed themselves as a full season entry.
