Could this be the return of a once familiar team name?

Wednesday, November 08, 2023


Scanning through this week’s provisional entry list ahead of January’s 19th running of the Creventic Dubai 24hr proved to be an interesting one to say the least.

Not expecting to see any Aston Martin Racing powered team listed amongst the seventy strong listing, we were pleasantly surprised to read of one such GT3 entry from a team that sounded mightily familiar for the #37 car.

Listed as an AMR Vantage GT3 entry from Modena Silverstone Ltd, a quick look upon the internet showed a retained connection between those behind this listing entry and that of Team Modena, a team that successfully ran the first customer Aston Martin DBR9 within the European Le Mans Series, FIA GT Championship and at Le Mans during the 2005 to 2008 period.

Like most things provisional, what we see today is not necessarily what you get on the day but to see the return of a Graham Schultz led outfit (who’s still listed as being in control of this Silverstone Innovations Park based company listed by Creventic) would be incredible, especially in this kind of livery format.

Let’s see what becomes of this over the intervening weeks as the race takes place in just over eight weeks’ time!
