This time just ten Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4s at GT4 European Series visit to Misano

Tuesday, July 11, 2023


Just two weeks after their last round at Spa Francorchamps, the GT4 European Series will be back in action again this weekend as up to forty-eight GT4 based crew make their way to Misano in Italy for another two, hour long races as part of their fourth round of the season.

Like most races so far, the names of drivers and the number of Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 crews again change slightly as the number of AMR entries reduces lightly to eleven compared to the thirteen of Spa.

The most notable change appears to be the move of Emil Heyerdahl from the Mirage Racing team (where he was supposed to partner Ruben Del Sarte) to the #48 GPA Racing Aston Martin of Bailey Voisin. With both Heyerdahl and Voisin struggling for a consistent co-driver, the uniting of both drivers together within the #48 car appears to be a sensible solution to both of their problems.

Beyond that, there are no differences within the remaining ten Aston Martin to those who competed at Spa last month as the #27 Newbridge car is again absent as is the #9 Racing 1 entry that was a one off for Spa only.

Whilst the differing weather conditions between both races put many teams onto the back foot for race 2, many used those changing conditions to their advantage with both the #18 Team Racing Spirt AMR of Lorenz Stegmann and Markus Lungstrass and the #89 AGS Events Racing AMR of Nicolas Gomar and Mike Parisy were able to add to the Aston Martin powered trophy count from the warmer race 1 when the #5 Mirage Racing of Jamie Day and Ruben Del Sarte claimed the final step of their (silver) class podium alongside the #72 GPA Racing Am Class podium for Kevin Jimenez and Florent Grizaud.

Within the overall class standing so far, the GPA Racing team rest in third within the Am Class whilst #74 racing Spirits of Leman crew Konstantin Lachenauer and Victor Weyrich sit best of the AMR runners within the Silver Class in sixth whilst their class win at Spa last time out lifts the #18 TRS AMR crew of Lungstrass and Stegmann up to fourth within Pro-Am.

Still much to race for at Misano
