A quick run-down of the remaining AMR action this weekend from around the world

Wednesday, September 20, 2023


Three further race meetings see out this weekend’s motorsport programme for mainstream Aston Martin Racing customer and partner teams with the German NLS series running third eight round at the Nurburgring Nordschleife, the GT Open Series at Monza and the GT world Challenge Asia Series seeing out their 2023 season at Sepang.

Starting farthest out to us in Malaysia sees the SRO sanctioned GT World Challenge Asia complete it six round season this weekend at the Sepang International with the Japanese based D’Station Racing branching out into this non-Japan Cup round in readiness for their racing commitments later this season.

Missing out again on the GT3 Japan Cup Championship, team boss Satoshi Hoshino and team manager Tomonobu Fujii will be back out again for this weekend’s two-hour long races with their #47 car amongst the thirty strong entry list. With no championship progress in mind, this weekend will be all about data and set up ahead of the team’s return to the circuit with the Asian Le Mans Series in early December.

In Italy, we have the GT Open Series running its penultimate round of the season around the ‘Temple of Speed’ with the Belgium based Street Art Racing team again being the sole AMR representative within that GT3 series with their #007 car of Pascal Bachman and Jahid Fazal Karim.

Running within the Am class, their ad-hoc approach to the season has left them well clear of any championship hopes with these events used as more of a stepping stone for their two amateur drivers with Karim only having stepped up to GT3 this season.

In a change to any usual running, despite Monza being a double header with their sister GT Open Cup Series for GT4 based cars, the team’s AMR Vantage GT4 will not be in attendance this weekend.

Finally, we have the eight running of the Nurburgring Langstrecken Serie around the infamous Nordschleife circuit in Germany where both the Prosport Racing and Doer Motorsport teams will be back for some more after their class success last time out at the Red Bull 6Hr double header.

Today’s entry list confirms that the #17 Pro-Am entered Prosport Racing AMR Vantage GT3 will be driven by Maxime Dumarey and Marek Bockmann with the #24 Doer AMR Vantage GT3 Pro class entered car will this time be driven by both Phil and Ben Dorr with the company of AMR factory driver Darren Turner again.

Prosport Racing compliment their GT3 entry with just one Vantage GT4 this time around as their #176 car will be driven by Guido Dumarey and Celia Martin.
