Rounding off this weekends AMR customer racing news

Monday, June 20, 2022

With this week’s racing news coming in thick and fast, just a quick post to cover off the final racing results from last weekend beyond those events already covered.

Back over at Virginia International Raceway, the #12 Ian Lacey prepared Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 of Frank Gannett and Drew Staveley enjoyed one of their best GT World Challenge America events to date after an impressive P6 in class finish after Saturdays first race.

Having had the coaching services of Roman de Angelis with them at the circuit prior to last weekend’s third round of the season, the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship Sprint Cup Champion obviously guided the team and drivers in such a way as they later achieved this superb result in their Pro-Am class.

With an undamaged car by the end of the event as well, the team move on to pre-event testing at Watkins Glenn with a reinvigorated determination.

Back in Europe, neither Street Art Racing Aston Martin GT3 or GT4 did race at the GT Open and GT Open Cup’s visit to Spa Francorchamps as previously confirmed and nor did the Race Lab prepared AMR Vantage GT3 at the final round of the New Zealand’s North Island Endurance Championship.

The British Endurance Championship’s second visit to Silverstone on Saturday also saw the Venture Aston Martin Vulcan miss the three-hour fourth round of the season but there were three AMR Vantage GT4’s on the grid.

Having tested at the circuit under blazing sunshine and thirty degrees plus air temperatures, race day was dealt a low teens air temperature and persistent rain to make all that prior testing worthless in the grand scheme of things. The best results here came from the #50 T7 Motorsport crew of Peter Montague and Stuart Hall coming home P2 in class whilst the older iteration of the Vantage GT4 #68 Team Brit and #33 Affinity Racing with Team Brit came home P5 and P6 respectively.
