And then there were three Aston Martin's at NLS 2 this weekend

Tuesday, April 05, 2022


This morning’s announcement from TF Sport of their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 entry into this years ADAC Total 24h has helped to swell (slightly) the Aston Martin entry in this weekend’s second round of the Nurburgring Langstrecken Series to three cars amongst the expected 142 car entry.

Full season entries from the locally based PROsport Racing team see their #17 AMR Vantage GT3 return with drivers Maxime Dumarey and Jean Glorieux hopefully pairing up together in the SP9 Pro-Am Class after Glorieux was taken ill just ahead of the opening round of the NLS two weeks ago. 

That situation needed ‘resident’ driver coach Nico Verdonck to step in and assist his customer driver Dumarey as the pairing Qualified P23 overall and eventually finished P14 overall at their first attempt.

That entry is supported again by the #176 SP10 (GT4) entry from the team for drivers Guido Dumarey, Guillaume Dumarey and Yevgen Sokolovskiy who also enjoyed a successful season opener around the Green Hell having qualified P60 overall / P4 in class, to eventually finish P2 in class.

These entries are now supported by the addition of the new TF Sport AMR Vantage GT3 entry this weekend as they prepared for the 24hour event later in May. With existing racing commitments hampering a consistent driver approach in the preparatory rounds, this weekend sees the #21 car being piloted by Nicki Thiim, Marco Sorenson and David Pittard.

With a driver line up like that within the SP9 Pro class, subject to weather conditions around the circuit on Saturday, we would expect a line up like that to be near the front runners by the end of the four-hour race.
