The bitter-sweet side of motorsport for the Street Art RAcing AMR team at Monza

Monday, September 26, 2022


Street Art Racing’s return to the GT Open and GT Open Cup Series at Monza at the weekend came with a bruising encounter for their GT4 gentleman driver whereas their GT3 driver came away with something totally unexpected.

Back in the series after skipping two previous rounds due to prior business engagements, the Pascal Bachmann driven Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 entered the main GT Open Series as a solo Am classed driver kept his #007 car firmly rooted to the black stuff whilst others were not during the deluge that marred Saturdays opening round to come away with an opportunist P3 in class for his efforts.

Whilst that brought a smile to the Swiss drivers face, the face of Jahid Fazal-Karim was probably etched more to the side of pain and discomfort than delight after he experienced a 170kph+ off in the teams AMR Vantage GT4 during Free Practice.

Having had to climb out of his upside-down car, the Jetcraft owner was fortunately able to continue aboard the teams spare chassis with little more to some bruising to his lower leg to at least utilise his time investment in competing at this round.

At the close, Karim and co-driver Julian Darras came home in P10 and P8 over their two races whilst Bachmann’s podium in race one was unfortunately followed up with a race 2 technical DNF!

Their final rounds of the season are from Barcelona in two weeks’ time.
