More AMR customer racing on either side of the Channel this weekend

Wednesday, May 24, 2023


More Aston Martin Racing customer racing news ahead of this weekend involves two further series, one competing at the picturesque Spa Francorchamps circuit in Belgium and the other around UK’s own ‘equivalent’ at Oulton Park.

Starting cross the channel sees the second round of the GT Open and supporting GT Cup Open Series take place with a larger grid expected there than at their opening round a few weeks ago in Portimao. 

Whilst we will not see an Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 compete within this round of the GT Cup Open Series this time around, we will be seeing the Street Art Racing AMR Vantage GT3 as they look to redress the disappointment of Portugal where transmission issues blighted their first race of the season and prevented them running within the second.

At their home round, Pascal Bachman will this time be joined by South African Xolile Letlaka as previously confirmed by the team as Jahid Fazal-Karim is absent through prior commitments and as the South African looks to expand his racing commitments into Europe again.

Still running within the series Am class, the #007 will remain highly conspicuous on track by means of its colourful livery. 

Then at Oulton Park we have the third round of the British Endurance Championship running on Saturday with the full season entries from both Venture Innovations Aston Martin Vulcan and MKH Racings AMR Vantage GT4 running in that three-hour affair.

Hopefully fully restored from being battered and bruised at the last round of the season from Brands Hatch, the bright orange #6 Vulcan of Gleb Stepanov and Stephen Tomkins is always a crowd favourite whilst the #50 car of Peter Montague and Stuart Hall very much there for the class and overall spoils of racing with their car sitting second in class and fourth overall after prior visits to both Silverstone and Brands Hatch.
