Bullitt Racing conclude their Asian Le Mans Series endeavours

Monday, February 20, 2023


Bullitt Racing has competed in the four-round Asian Le Mans Series for the first time, fielding the #66 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for Martin Berry, Jacob Riegel and Valentin Hasse-Clot. The opening two rounds in Dubai yielded just a 17th place finish, while in Abu Dhabi, it was better, but not what the team were striving for, with a 13th place finish.

For the Spanish squad, it has been a tough start to the year. The freight issues in getting the car and equipment to Dubai ended up being a serious logistical problem which was overcome at some expense. The two rounds in Dubai saw contact end the first race almost before it started, while in the second it brought a lowly finish after a mid-race incident.

The pattern continued at Yas Marina on Saturday with Martin unable to avoid a spinning #21 Ferrari at the start and making heavy contact and ending the race. So for the final four-hour event, it was just a case of finishing.

That’s not to say that Jacob didn’t push hard in his opening stint, he did, moving from ninth to as high as fourth. Martin was next and given his misfortune in the previous three races, he was, by his own admission, cautious.

The team now head back to base and put the finishing touches to the programme for the remainder of the year, and while Asian Le Mans didn’t work out as expected, better is yet to come.
