British Endurance Championship kicks off at Silverstone tomorrow with some familiar faces

Friday, March 24, 2023


Here we were looking forward to a final weekend devoid of Aston Martin Racing powered team participation this weekend before things really kick off again next – and then we see that the British Endurance Championship start their 2023 endeavours tomorrow.

Opening their account around the full Grand Prix circuit of Silverstone sees twenty-three multi-class cars scheduled to compete in tomorrow’s three-hour opener.

With many of those testing at the circuit today, tomorrows entry sees the return of both the #6 Venture Innovations Aston Martin Vulcan of Gleb Stepanov and Stephen Tompkins and the #50 MKH Racing Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 of Peter Montague and Stuart Hill.

Both cars ran in the Championship last season – the Vulcan at pre-selected rounds where the cars power characteristics could be used more effectively and without undue risk to the car but more successfully for the #50 Class D car of Montague/Hill and sometimes Dan Brown which came third overall and first in class for their efforts.

Again running a single day programme for the Endurance rounds, tomorrow will be made up of an early forty-minute Free Practice session before launching straight into Qualifying before the green flag to their season opener at 13:40hrs local.
