Hard graft for Viper Niza in the heat of Bangsaen street circuit TSS Grand Prix

Wednesday, July 05, 2023

Another frustrating weekend for the Viper Niza Aston Martin Racing team last weekend as they competed within the latest round of the Thailand Super Series from the coastal venue of Bangsaen.

Reminiscent of either Long Beach or Surfers Paradise, this street circuit based layout proved to be a difficult proposition for all the GT3 class grid as the tight circuit and tighter corners took their toll over the series two hour long races.

Having debuted their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 in the series last season as it supported the F1 package around the street circuit of Singapore, last weekend later proved itself to be much tougher and more frustrating for the drivers of the #65 car – Douglas Khoo and Dominic Ang after each qualifying session.

Finishing race 1 on Saturday in P5 proved itself to be the big success of the weekend as Sunday’s second race would eventually finish behind the Safety Car after the inevitable contact with the barriers for another unfortunate.

Next stop for the series will be at the Sepang International Circuit at the end of August.
