Nine Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4s line up at FFSA GT4 opener from Nogaro next weekend

Thursday, March 30, 2023


Just over a week since its sister SRO GT4 European Series announced its provisional 2023 entry list, today saw the French national FFSA GT4 Series confirm their actual entry list for its opening round of the season from Nogaro in just over a week’s time.

Like the GT4 European Series, this year’s FFSA GT4 Series sees another thirty-six cars confirmed for Nogaro’s opening double header with entries again spread across its available Silver, Am and Pro-Am classes with a mighty nine from various established Aston Martin Racing powered teams.

AGS Events Racing, Mirage Racing, GPA Racing and the Racing Spirit of Lemans teams all return to the series having competed within it last season with different drivers, but some have returned to carry on from where they left off whilst others step over or up to the series for the first time.

Nicolas Gomar’s AGS Events team sees himself this time partner team returnee, Hugo Bac aboard their #89 Pro-Am car with fellow Am class returnees Didier Dumaine and Christophe Carriere this time look towards the overall top step in class in their #98 car as something of a reduced entry format for the team this time around.

The Mirage Racing team up their FFSA package to three cars with Yves Lemaitre and Vincent Beltoise steps across the team garage from their Alpine of last season to the Aston this year with silver class pairing Louis Meric and Romain Carton pairing up in the #7 car this season. The team’s third car will be driven by Ruben Del Sarte and David Kullman, who steps up from single seaters in the silver class this time around in the #5 car.

The Racing Spirit of Lemans team brings another silver and AM class pairing in Mateo Villagomez and a returning Victor Weyrich aboard the #92 car as well as a returning Ronald Basso and new driver Clement Dub aboard the #73 Am car.

Finally, but certainly by no means least, sees the GPA Racing team again field two Aston Martins, one for their very successful Am pairing of Kevin Jimenez and Florent Grizaud as they embark upon a dual FFSA/GT4 European Series season adventure within their #72 car as well as a team swapping Tom Verdier. He swaps from the AGS Events Racing team to the #39 GPA Racing Pro-Am car to partner former motocross rider Baudouin Detout as he steps up to car racing for the first time.

Like all SRO GT4 Series, next weekend’s race weekend will comprise of Free Practice and Qualifying ahead of two, hour long pitstop punctuated races – both available live via the series social media channels. Many of the teams will already have tested at the circuit a couple of weeks ago at the series official Prologue test.
