Will it be three or four Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4s at WRLs visit to Barber this weekend?

Sunday, February 26, 2023

Fifty-nine multi-class entries will make their way over to the Barber Motorsport Park in Alabama later this week for the latest round of the World Racing League.

This time featuring both a nine and a seven-hour race over the weekend, the topflight GTO class will this time see a great expansion within its class as three brand new Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4’s enter the equation for the first time after their shakedown event at Homestead in Florida in the opening event of the FARA USA Series.

With the #909 Automatic Racing Aston Martin from the Stoner Car Care crew again missing from the entry and the #43 Prosport Competition entry also facing last minute driver crew issues with the unexpected loss of two drivers two weeks before the event, it may be that the three new TLM Racing AMR entries will be left to fly the flag alone on their series debut.

Not that many of these AMR crews are new to the TLM team or to the series of course as all have made the switched to the Vantage GT4 having seen its success in other American Series and with their own WRL Series slowing expanding out into newer GT4 based race machinery than before. 

This weekend’s twenty-three strong GTO class entry list details similarly new GT4 platforms from both Porsche and BMW so the moves from the TLM Racing team is simply them keeping up with the Jones’.

Driver crews for the three TLM Racing team have been confirmed to us by the team as being father and son duo Brian and Zang O’Shaughnessy with Pippa Mann and team boss David Tuaty aboard the red/white/blue #888 car with the #172 car being driven by Jim Hamman, Thomas Herb and Jody Miller with Scott Blind, Evan Stamer and a young Jaiden Beckman completing the line-up aboard the colourfully liveried Ruckus Racing #453 car.
