TF Sport announce a new ELMS line up with Ben Tuck joining the Vantage GTE crew this season

Monday, January 23, 2023


Off the back of their latest American based racing endeavours ahead of next weekend’s IMSA Rolex 24 sees the TF Sport Aston Martin Racing team confirm a second Vantage GTE crew for this year’s European Le Mans Series.

Already supporting an all-French crew within the Series with AMR factory driver Valentin Hasse-Clot supporting brothers Max and Arnold Robin has the team confirm the return of gentleman driver John Hartshorne to the ACO rules series for a third and final crack at the GTE class title.

Supported again by AMR factory driver Jonny Adam, Hartshorne is this year joined by former British GT racer Ben Tuck for the six round series that begins in April.

Ben Tuck, TF Sport Silver Driver - “I’ve known about TF Sport since I raced in British GT in 2018 and followed their progress throughout the years knowing that they’re one of best GT Teams around. I’m really excited to be joining such an experienced and successful team and I’m really looking forward to where this season leads on to for the future. 

For the past four years I’ve mostly been racing at the Nurburgring (with the DTM Trophy in 2020) and only racing in BMW GT4/GT3 cars. Overall, this is going to be a very different experience for me; new car with the Aston Martin GTE, new tracks, a new championship and I really cannot wait to get started. I’m seriously looking forward to the 2023 season!”

Hartshorne and Adam will be out in action together before the opening round of the ELMS however as they (with Henrique Chaves) compete within the Asian Le Mans Series next month with three AMR Vantage GTE's presently listed with the GMB Motorsport entry from Denmark heading the provisional entry list in class.
