News from BSport Racing bursts the bubble of the continual good news from America

Saturday, December 10, 2022

With Aston Martin Racing powered teams presently at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida testing their new steads ahead of the coming season, this evening we also learned of some more rather sombre news with the cessation of activities from the Bsport Racing AMR customer racing Team.

Formed by Bryan Putt having just clinched the 2019 SRO America TCR DSG Cup class, the team joined allegiances with the AMR brand to race a new Vantage GT4 within the Series GT4 America Series with Kenton Koch as driver coach/co-driver and his wife Dani Koch as Team Manager.

With various high and lows of that opening year as well as the challenges that COVID threw in everyone’s path the next, the teams expansion into the GT America Series last year put them onto a two car GT4 programme as many of the other Pro-Am class runners with one or both drivers never a stranger to the podium.

With nothing more than an explanation of “unfortunate circumstances” being cited as the reason why the team will not be operating in 2023, all that we can say to them is thank you for the ride over the last few years – it’s certainly been a blast from our end of the equation and we wish all those affected all the best for the future and that we hope to see them all around the paddock again sometime soon.

Meanwhile and over at Daytona, the new Team TGM Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 and GT4’s have all been out testing around the Floridian circuit ahead of the Roar before the 24 Official test before the opening round of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Champiosnhip and supporting Michelin Pilot Challenge Series at the end of January.

With TF Sport in support at the circuit with the GT3 (GTD) effort that will run during the Rolex 24, the team had all three Aston’s on track for their collective driver line ups of Ted Giovanis, Owen Trinkler and Hugh and Matt Plumb.

Joining them on circuit were also cars from the Accelerating Performance stable as Moisey Uretsky moves up to the Michelin Pilot Challenge for a full season next year having mixed his racing commitments last season between the IMSA and SRO paddocks.

Running both his familiar yellow and black liveried Vantage GT4, the white and bare carbon car was apparently his rebuilt chassis following on from his big crash in it at VIR last season.
