Two become three Aston Martins for the next round of the GT Open Series in Hungary

Saturday, July 02, 2022


The fourth round of the International GT Open Series has come around again, this coming weekend from the Hungaroring with something of a surprise for us too.

Also supporting the GT3 series will again be the GT Open Cup Series for GT4 cars and for us Aston Martin Racing fans, that means an AMR Vantage apiece in each series as the Belgian Street Art Racing team returns to the track after another enforced sabbatical from the last round at Spa Francorchamps.

Running a race programme for their customer drivers that relies on up both being present to share crew costs, prior business arrangements again forced Pascal Bachmann to miss the teams ‘local’ round at Spa and as a result, Jahid Fazal-Karim did likewise with his AMR Vantage GT4 that he shares with Julian Darras.

Confirmed as both in attendance this coming weekend from Hungary sees not only these two cars but also something from AMR’s past as the local GFS Racing team brings along their V12 powered AMR Vantage GT3 that racer Janis Santa races in and around Europe in the smaller GT events for his first adventure into a higher-level GT event.

Last seen by us having been shaken down by Tom Canning on the Silverstone Stowe circuit following a recent Prodrive rebuild earlier this year, the entry is presumably another solo driver effort for Santa within the main GT Open Series, much like the #007 Street Art car of Bachmann.

So far this season, both SAR crews have only competed at their respective round at Paul Ricard in May so neither now have any championship contention but then, it all might be for the fun of it and to see what happens!!
