A struggle for the Aston Martin at IMSAs visit to VIR

Saturday, August 26, 2023


The change in Balance of performance has certainly given the race organisers the desired effect as the once high rolling Aston Martin Racing powered Heart of Racing team has struggled to compete at the latest round of the IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship.

After several pole positions and podium finishes for the teams GTD Pro and GTD entries, this weekend’s visit to Virginia International Raceway has seen the Ross Gunn / Alex Riberas and Roman De Angelis / Marco Sorenson combo’s struggle for pace.

Going into this afternoon’s Qualifying, both crews lagged by at least a second and that was no different after the fifteen-minute Qualifying session. Despite setting a decent early banker lap each towards the top, the best that the #23 could achieve was P5 in GTD Pro and for the #27 – they will be starting from P6 in GTD.
