Podiums won but finally out of Championship contention for the AMR runners in FFSA GT4

Tuesday, September 13, 2022


Again, making up for lost ground again with the exploits of track of the various Aston Martin Racing powered teams who competed around Europe last weekend saw the French FFSA GT4 Series hold their penultimate round of the season from the Circuit de Ledenon in the south of the country.

Going into this round had three AMR crews needing a perfect win/win race result together with those above them in their respective classes also failing to score to maintain the very slim Championship aspirations they may have had going into the final round of the season.

Whilst there were class Pole Positions and class podiums to be earned by the eight AMR runners over the two races that make up a usual FFSA GT4 weekend, those results were unfortunately not sufficient to maintain those dreams.

The #74 Silver Class Racing Spirit of Lemans Aston Martin of Roman Carton and Victor Weyrich did earn themselves a front row start for Saturdays opening encounter but that was sadly to convert into another failure to finish that was only somewhat buoyed by a P4 in class in Sundays race.

The Am Class contending #161 AGS Events Racing AMR of Didier Dumaine and Christophe Carrier had a weekend to forget with a DNF in race one that extended into a DNS for race 2 whilst the #72 GPA Racing Aston of Kevin Jimenez and Florent Grizaud did at least get to step upon the AM class podium with another brace of P3 in class finishes. Again, that was not enough to maintain the Championship aspirations.

The #13 Mirage Racing crew of Valentin Hasse-Clot and replacement co-driver Arnold Robin also needed a double race win but had to settle for a P4 and then a P12 in class to finally end their hopes for a crew that once lead their Pro-Am class.

For these eight runners, their 2022 FFSA GT4 Series season will conclude at Paul Ricard with the SRO Racing Festival weekend in mid-October.
