P2 first time out of the box for FHK Racing at the Sepang 12hr

Sunday, March 17, 2024


First time Aston Martin Racing racers, FHK Racing, continued the fine AMR form this weekend as they scooped a well-earned class podium at the end of the Sepang 12Hr yesterday.

Usually associated with Porsche racing hard wear, the New Zealand based team continued this new AMR/Earl Bamber Motorsport association seen of late within the GT4 class to help the Franco/Kiwi driving trio of Francois Beziac, Heremana Malmezac and Jono Lester to claim an overall seventh placed finish as well as second within their own GT3 AM Class.

Only confirmed to the world just over a week ago, the crew arrived in Malaysia full of hope and trepidation having never ran a full specification GT3 car before but with the professionalism of the EBM team around them, their combined qualifying times placed the #71 car in for a P11 start out of the seventeen listed runners having started the race weekend down at the tail end of the timing screen and nearly five seconds off the pace.

As the race began and the track temperatures rose, some others fell by the wayside but the #71 quickly elevated itself up the running order to be within the top three in class.

Eventually finishing P7 overall and P2 in class, the #71 completed their inaugural (and twelve hour long) account with Aston Martin Racing twelve laps down to the eventual race and GT3 Am class winners.

Question is now – what’s next for this EBM prepared AMR Vantage GT3?

Well done team!
