Leroux and Aston Martin Racing win the double again at Singapore GP

Sunday, September 17, 2023


The weekend proved itself something of a record-breaking return for Romain Leroux as he became the first driver to win back-to-back double race wins (in class) at the Thailand Super Series Invitational round at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Last year driving a Viper Niza Racing prepared Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4, the twenty-one-year-old Frenchman with strong Asian race ties proved dominant within the GTC class last year to win both races.

This year, Leroux returned to the event but this time with the Earl Bamber Motorsport team to do likewise again this weekend with his new #97 AMR Vantage GT4.

Whilst we already know that both the platform and the driver have massive skill and potential – especially when combined, but the real news is of this new association with a predominantly Porsche based team with this chassis with the news from Aston Martin Racing themselves that this relation will extend beyond just this event.

Now, that is very interesting!!

Also at the event was the #63 Viper Niza Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 of Douglas Khoo with the event making their first-year anniversary of their tie up with Aston Martin where Singapore 2022 was he first AMR powered race.

Whilst Khoo now has many race miles under his belt within the #65 car within both the TSS and other series, difficult driving conditions during both races around the Singapore street circuit proved to be a challenge for many.

Finishing P8 in class after Saturday’s weekend opener, the weekend was tarnished slightly with a DNF in race two on Sunday.

The series now takes a break before its fifth and concluding championship round at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram in mid-December.
