Eight Aston Martins line up for next round of GT America from Road America next weekend

Friday, August 11, 2023


After last weekend’s small but perfectly formed trio of Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4’s competing at the Music City’s Grand Prix round of the GT America Series, a quick turnaround will see a mighty eight such cars join the fray for its next round from Road America next weekend.

Only the full season entries of Jason Bell (#2 Flying Lizards), Gray Newell (#25 Heart of Racing) and Ross Chouest (#50 Chouest Povoledo Racing) braved the street circuit of Nashville last weekend but despite the Porsche of Rob Holland commanding the top step of the GT4 class, both Chouest and Bell enjoyed podium success to maintain their positions within the class championship hunt as the series moves across to the traditional circuit layout of Road America.

Todays provisional entry list sees those three full season entries of course return but with some more both familiar and other non-familiar faces for this SRO sanctioned Series.

The #8 Flying Lizard car of Elias Sabo returns after something of a fraught event last time out at VIR (prior to Nashville) as well as the #428 Van Der Steur prepared car of Brady Behrman who swaps from the pro-am class of the sister GT4 America to that of the solo driving bronze driver within this series.

The #009 The Racers Group entered (and Prosport Competition) prepared AMR of Tim Savage returns for his third round of the series having entered the series late to race at both Sonoma and VIR to stand nineth within the class going into this seventh round.

Then we have the two new entries of the #045 Archangel Motorsport prepared entry of Scott Blind and his Ruckus Racing trade name – more known to us for his exploits so far within the World Racing League with his very brightly coloured AMR Vantage GT4. This time Team TLM will not be preparing his car for this series as he sticks with his service provider from his other Porsche based racing commitments.

Finally, we see the #13 GMG Racing prepared car of Todd Parriott enter the series for the first time, not his first event with his Aston Martin of course as he and Andy Lee entered the Spa round of the GT4 European Series just ahead of the Crowdstrike 24Hours of Spa race. Unfortunately there, an incident during practice caused irreparable damage to the car and we never actually saw them compete.

Hopefully, all will have better fortune next weekend as the series runs out rounds 13 and 14 of the season with two more forty-minute races.
