Feathers Motorsport and Viper Niza round off this weekends Aston Martin customer racing action

Thursday, June 29, 2023


The UK’s GT Cup Championship will be back in action again this weekend from the beautiful Cheshire circuit of Oulton Park as the championship embarks upon their fourth round of the season so far with their multi-classed GT grids.

This weekend’s somewhat restrained entry of just eighteen cars again sees the #82 Feathers Motorsport Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 of James Guess and Tom Canning entered within their GTH class as the red, white and blue Aston to hound those former Aston Martin racers of Paul Bailey and Ross Wylie at the head of the overall championship table as well as leading their own GTH class by a healthy margin at this midway point to their season.

As usual, Saturday and Sunday will be punctuated by each of the Championship’s solo sprint races for the amateur driver as well as a longer endurance (with compulsory pit stop) race later in the day per day.

Having skipped the Championship last year, Guess has certainly come back in fighting spirit in the races so far – usually securing a class podium finish per race to maintain their championship momentum.

Rounding off #TeamAMR’s racing commitments this weekend appears to be the return to track action for the Malaysian based Viper Niza Racing team as Douglas Khoo and Domonic Ang get trackside again with their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 at a very bespoke coastal street circuit in Thailand.

Perhaps ever so slightly comparative to Surfers Paradise in Australia, the Bangsaen Grand Prix event features a tight and twisty circuit layout with a paddock backing directly onto the local beach – extremely enticing we are sure considering the high ambient and high humidity levels there at the moment.

Two races per weekend, this event is the third of the Thailand Super Series so far this season after two consecutive rounds around the Chang International in Buriram earlier in April/May. Having had to rebuild their Vantage GT3 ahead of the opening round (from damage sustained within the Asian Le Mans Series), two sixth place class finishes sees the #65 Pro-Am crew sit P11 overall within the GT3 class going into this event.
