Just a couple of title chances as twelve Aston Martins take on the final rounds of the GT4 European Series in Spain

Friday, September 30, 2022


The GT4 European series finalises its 2022 account this weekend with another brace of one hour sprint races around the Circuit de Catalunya track near Barcelona.

Always a popular series, the final weekend welcomes another near capacity grid of forty-eight cars with some battling it out to the conclusion of their class whilst others dip that metaphorical toe into the water ahead of any decision for next season.

Amongst those forty-eight cars, we have been told to expect a whopping twelve Aston Martin Racing powered teams competing again through all three available classes with a few crews returning to their earlier combinations whilst we also welcome new crews to the series for the first time.

Amongst the latter we see the FFSA GT4 entry of the GPA Racing’s Florent Grizaud and Kevin Jimenez join the sister SRO series for the first time ahead of their French national series finale in just two weeks’ time as well as Ruben Del Sarte partnering British GT GT4 racer and GT4 Championship contender Jamie Day aboard the #58 Mirage Racing AMR Vantage.

From a season ending championship stand point of view, just two AMR crews stand any mathematical chance of securing the Silver Class by the end of the weekend with the #24 Prosport Racing duo of Mike David Ortmann and Hugo Sasse best placed in third but still thirty eight points behind the leading Mercedes whilst the #10 Racing Spirit of Lemans AMR of Konstantin Lachenauer and Gus Bowers really do need to win both races and rely upon the leaders failing to score to have any hope there.

In the Pro-Am class, it’s just the #25 Prosport Racing car of Rodrique Gillion/Nico Verdonck and the return of the #9 Racing One AMR of Christian Gisy/Ralf Kelleners again but they both sit mid table with just personal pride and ambition to race for whilst we also see three cars compete within the Am class.

Like we’ve said earlier, it’s a series debut for the #72 GPA Racing crew whilst the #18 Racing One AMR of Henrik Pederson-Lyngbye and the #89 AGS Events Racing AMR of Julien Lambert and Wilfried Cazalbon both see the season out in Spain but with still a very distinct chance for the French #89 crew being just twenty-two points behind their class leaders.

The #6 Racing One car of Moritz/Vincent Gisy, the #7 AGS Events AMR of Mike Parisy/Nicolas Gomar, #80 AGS Events AMR of Tom Verdier/Loris Cabirou and the #19 Racing Spirit of Lemans AMR of Tom Canning/Akhil Rabindra complete the Aston Martin powered driver line up going into this final round.
