Another healthy news day from #TeamAMR

Thursday, January 11, 2024


It’s been another good Aston Martin Racing team news day today as another trilogy of Partner and Customer teams announce at least part of their respective 2024 programme from around the world.

The biggest news must be that Marco Sorenson will become perhaps the busiest AMR factory driver next season as he now adds the Japanese Super GT Series to his already confirmed IMSA Weathertech Sportscar Championship and World Endurance Championship obligations.

Confirmed today as adding D’Station Racings return to the GT300 class of their topflight domestic GT series to that of their WEC commitments sees the new Evo’d version of the AMR Vantage GT3 take to the circuits of Japan alongside D’Station Racing Team Manager Tomonobu Fujii.

A busy eight round series starting in mid-April at Okayama will greet the new duo as well as two official series test days at both Okayama and at their home track of Fuji Speedway the month before.

Next, we saw the Automatic Racing supported Stoner Car Care team confirm a return to the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge Series and a return to a season opening four-hour affair at the Daytona 24hr early next month with their Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4.

Having taken something of a sabbatical from the series last season in favour of series such as the World Racing League, the ironically liveried GT4 is back with Brandon Kidd again supporting team stalwarts of Rob Ecklin and Ramin Abdolvahabi.

So far, the entry list for next week’s Roar before the 24 Test from Daytona for either the Michelin Pilot Challenge of VP Racing Sportscar Challenge Series have yet to be officially revealed but we do expect a healthier AMR contingent spread between the two this season.

Finally, another new AMR recruit in the German based and freshly renamed for the new season in Sax Motorsport also confirm the first AMR Vantage GT4 driver line up for within the ADAC GT4 Germany Series this year.

Denis Bulatov and Phillip Gogollok remain with the team for another season but transfer to the Aston Martin platform from the Mercedes AMG GT4 of last season like team will be doing. Finishing one step higher in the Driver’s Championship will certainly be the ambition of this crew.
