Last gasp for some AMR runners as the FFSA GT4 nears its conclusion

Tuesday, September 06, 2022

Like so many European series around them, the French FFSA GT4 Series will be racing its penultimate round of their 2022 season this weekend from the Circuit de Ledenon in the south of the country.

Having battled it out over double header rounds at Nogaro, Magny-Cours, Albi and most recently at Spa Francorchamps during the SRO’s Speedweek, it has sadly been another year where the multiple Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 entries have failed to deliver with just a couple of exceptions.

In the Am class, a recent string of lowly or indeed no point finishes for the #72 GPA Racing AMR of Kevin Jimenez and Florent Grizaud and the #161 AGS Events Racing AMR of Didier Dumaine and Christophe Carriere has left them both with only the slightest of mathematical possibilities of claiming the class title, but either must win all the remaining races of the season plus rely upon the top two cars in the Championship failing to finish all the remaining races as well.

In the Pro-Am class, the once championship leading Mirage Racing AMR of Valentin Hasse-Clot and the then Romano Ricci has now slipped to fourth, but Ricci’s ongoing injury sees him again miss this event with his place again being taken by Arnold Robin. With the points deficit being forty-six points to the leader, that would require a 100% finish from the #13 crew with those above them also failing to finish/score.

Driver changes include AGS Events boss Nicolas Gomar joining Hugo Back within the #7 car, Fabien Baule joining Stephane Debrosse within the teams #79 car  and the removal of the teams #89 Gomar/Loris Cabirou Pro-Am entry.

These cars will again be three of eight AMR Vantage GT4’s due to compete again within the series from the full season teams of the AGS Events Racing, Racing Spirit of Lemans, GPA Racing and Mirage Racing – also again with both races being streamed live via the Series social media channels.
