Barcelona decider for Forsetti in GT4 Winter Series

Monday, March 04, 2024


Three more podium finishes at the weekend for the Forsetti Motorsport at the penultimate round of the GT4 Winter Series from Aragon has left them tantalisingly close to the overall title but need just a few more points at the final round to collect the silverware.

With Mikey Porter and Jamie Day again piloting the #19 17A version of the Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 (unfortunately their new 2024 40A variant wasn’t allowed out to play this weekend) saw Day make another of his customary lights to flag solo race wins in the weekend’s opening thirty-minute race before Porter claimed another P3 of his own within his own sprint race.

That left the young pairing just Sunday’s hour long and pit stop punctuated endurance round but even another race win for the pairing there wasn’t quite enough for the team to seal either the Overall and Pro classes.

In Pro, the duo lead their closest opponent (Joel Mesch) by just 12.75 points and with three races remaining – each awarding 9 points to the winner, the mathematical possibilities are obvious.

Them, within the Overall Championship position, it is again the Mercedes AMG GT4 of Joel Mesch who is the Aston’s crew closest opponent. This time a 58-point advantage over the German could still be overcome with another 75 points being available at the final round of the season in Barcelona next weekend.

Whilst the team’s dominance within the GT4 Winter Series may have been obvious with just three race results off the podium, the points scoring system has at least kept things open for those behind. To win overall will obviously be a good thing for this fledgling team but with some further 2024 commitments already announced – the quality of race opposition will only increase in both number and ability.

Game on in Barcelona for the Championship next week then!
