Two Aston Martin back for 14 hour WRL race from Daytona this weekend

Tuesday, June 07, 2022

Whilst many of us will be transfixed upon the events from the 90th Edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend, over at Daytona the World Racing League will be running a mini version of their own with another of their fourteen-hour race events.

With costs managed by the series to ensure sustainable efficiencies within their clientele, this event again features another multi-class grid of seventy-eight entries which, like always, sells out well before the day.

Featuring again in what will be a local event for one Aston Martin Racing customer team sees both the Automatic Racing and Prosport Competition teams return with their older, normally aspirated Vantage GT4 cars that runs in a Grand Am specification.

Last time out at Road America in May, the GTO #909 Automatic Racing car of Ramin Abdolvahabi, Brandon Kidd and Stephen Davison won the first eight-hour race on Saturday before coming home P5 after Sundays second eight-hour race.

The Prosport Competition will also be back in the paddock having gingerly returned to the series at Road America having missed two rounds thanks to an engine issue earlier in the year. Featuring a driver line up including Pippa Mann again at Road America, the best the #143 car could do was a P6 on Saturday with a P8 on Sunday.

For Daytona, the team will arrive with a driver line up of Mark Doran, Dwayne Moses, Jim Cox and Nick Pearson who will presumably be looking to take the team back to the top of the timing screens.
