The TRG Aston Martin Vantage GT3 still in with a chance as GT World Challenge America returns to action

Monday, August 14, 2023


Concluding this weekend’s racing activities as far as the SRO America organisation is concerned sees the GT3 field of the GT World Challenge America Series get back to visit with their fifth round of the season so far from Road America.

Joining both but unlike the GT America and GT4 America Series at the Wisconsin circuit, we continue with just the solo Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 from The Racers Group amongst the provisional line up of nineteen cars for this weekend’s two races.

Team drivers Derek DeBoer and the recently married Parisian, Valentin Hasse-Clot return to the blue #007 Pro-Am classed entry like they have done for the past three rounds with the Frenchman now appearing to be the factory driver of choice over the already very busy Ross Gunn who contested the opening round at Sonoma.

Since the teams entry into the series (very much in at the deep end in California), class success has been rewarded for the team’s efforts since then with pole positions and podium finishes at both Nola Motorsport Park and at the Circuit of the Americas to leave the #007 crew (DeBoer only thanks to change in Pro driver) third within their Pro-Am Drivers Championship.

Further down the entry list, we also see the former/current AMR Vantage GT4 TR3 Racing duo of Paul Kiebler and Jon Branam behind the wheel of an Mercedes AMG GT3 at this event too! 

Testing kicks off the race weekend on Thursday, ahead of official Practice on Friday with both Qualifying sessions and race 1 on Saturday before rounding off the weekend with race 2 on Sunday afternoon.
