Three Aston Martins welcomed to British GTs #DoningtonDecider race weekend

Tuesday, October 17, 2023


The British GT Championship is yet another race series coming to a natural conclusion as they race out yet another #DoningtonDecider final round to help fathom out just who takes the available GT3 and GT4 class accolades.

However, neither full season entry from Beechdean AMR or R-Racing are well enough placed within their respective GT3 and GT4 classes to be a part of this year’s finale despite P2 finishes apiece at the last round at Brands Hatch in early September.

Within the GT3 class, Beechdean AMR presently sit fourth within the Constructors Championship table but with a points deficit too large to overcome should both Andrew Howard and Ross Gunn upset the championship deciding applecart by taking Sunday’s race win. On the contrary, they could also lose ground to the Optimum and Sky Tempesta Racing crews behind should they slip up.

It’s a similar vein within the overall GT3 Drivers Championship – too far behind to be part of the #DoningtonDecider shootout in P6 but still within easy pickings of crew further crews just behind them but within their GT3 Pro-Am class, both Howard and Gunn can easily move up several places should other class results go their way.

Then in the GT4 class, the #23 R-Racing AMR Vantage GT4 of Josh Miller and Seb Hopkins sit way down in sixth within their overall Drivers Championship but again, still within easy pickings of other crews and teams ahead of them in that and the Team’s Championship’s. Within their own Silver Class, it appears that their two DNF’s at the season opener at Oulton Park that have cost the young dup dear but a decent result for them (and not by others) could see them elevate to a more respectable level by the end of this final two-hour race.

For this round, we also welcome a third Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 as the #31 MKH Racing car with Ron Johnson and BTCC Champion Tom Ingram take to the track with an Aston together for the first time. A one off for the drivers for sure but definitely a toe into the water for the Peter Montague owned team that has former AMR WEC GTE Am Champion Stuart Hall with its midst as well.

Thirty-four entries populate the provisional entry list, evenly split between the two classes. It definitely won't be as warm as last time out, but it will be just as fun to watch!
