Despite a race win, there was strife for both Astons as the WRL hit Barber Motorsport Park

Monday, March 07, 2022

When it works – it works but when it doesn’t, it all seems like hard work for no reward and that was what the second round of the 2022 World Racing League Series appeared to be like for the two Aston Martin Racing runners at Barber Motorsports Park last weekend.

With the opening round of the season from NOLA not running according to plan for the Prosport Competition AMR Vantage GT4 team with both technical and accident damage hindering both opening races of the year, it was hoped that last weekend’s 9 + 7-hour races would prove better luck for their driver line up of Dwayne Moses, Nick Pearson and Mark Doran.

Unfortunately again for the team, their #143 car didn’t progress further than the forty third lap of the winners completed two hundred and seventy five lap race – quite why we don’t know but we can see that the car also didn’t make for the start of Sundays shorter seven hour race as a direct consequence. Sporting a new front quarter going into the race and appearing intact at the end of the meeting, we can only surmise that incident or accident was had at some point during the weekend.

That being said, the #909 Automatic Racing entry of Brandon Kidd, Stephen Davison and (?) David Russell did make the best of the opening race on Saturday taking a P5 start through to an overall race win at the end of the day.

Even then, the #909 car suffered the same fate as their stablemates in race 1 with an unsightly DNF being listed against them by the of Sundays race.

Next round of the series will be from Mid-Ohio in early April.
