Beechdean AMR outline details of their 2022 GT World Challenge Endurance Cup assault

Tuesday, March 08, 2022


Good news from the Beechdean AMR team this morning after they finally confirmed what everyone had half expected with a two car Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 effort within this year’s GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup.

Presently down at the Paul Ricard circuit in southern France at the Official GTWCE Test Days with a single car, team boss Andrew Howard and his squad appeared buoyant with today’s announcement which, although doesn’t give us all the details, but certainly shows intent.

“It’s fantastic to be able to announce our return to international motorsport in the GT World Challenge Europe. It’s the first time we’ll have run a pair of GT3 cars internationally and we’re certainly aiming to be competitive from the get-go. We’ve been front-runners in every series we’ve ever raced in and we’re serious about success. When we announce full details of the programme later this month, it will be very clear how serious we are about achieving it” said the multiple British GT Champion.

The reasons for the absence in a full driver announcement today appear’s to be within the detail of the arrangements which the team hoped to have ironed out before the end of the month and just ahead of the season opener at Imola, Italy at the start of April.

Testing in France with Howard were both former 2020 GT4 European Series Silver Cup Champions Valentin Hasse-Clot and Theo Nouet – each with connection to one another beyond their AGS Events Racing success in that series as Nouet is managed by Hasse-Clot and Hasse-Clot has raced before with the High Wycombe team before in British GT.

Also not confirmed are the team’s classes of entry, as with Howard being named as a driver at least one car will now be Pro-Am whilst the second car could be in Silver Cup (just liked they had hoped to do in British GT in 2020) with the other option being a full Pro Cup line up involving certain other drivers presently over at Sebring awaiting to test for the World Endurance Championship.

Only time will tell but good news like this is always encouraging!
