Multi podium success for Earl Bamber Motorsport and their global Aston Martins

Sunday, July 07, 2024


It was to be a successful racing weekend for the Earl Bamber Motorsport prepared Aston Martin Racing crews around the world as Vantage GT3 and GT4 powered crews participated within three separate events.

Furthest from their native home of New Zealand saw the team enter the 24H Series twelve hours of Misano event for the first time under the name of Prime Speed Racing with drivers Heremana Malmezac, Liam Talbot and Earl Bamber behind the wheel of their new #42 Vantage GT3.

Having Qualified third within their elected Pro-Am class, the #42 car suffered from multiple punctures as well as technical issues and race time penalties that otherwise blighted a decent run. Their perseverance paid off however as they eventually came home P14 overall but more importantly P3 in class.

Then over in Suzuka in Japan, their #8 GT World Challenge Asia solo race of Setiawan Santosa enjoyed the best weekend yet within the series fifth round of the season by claiming a P3 in GT3 Am double for his efforts.

Finally, the team also had dealings with the Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 efforts of the #7 Team NZ as drivers Graham Dowsett and Ananthorn Tangniannatchi also delivered the goods within the GT4 class of the Thailand Super Series visit to Bangsaen.

Competing within the GT4 Pro class, the #7 car would come home for a podium winning double with a P3 after race 1 and P2 after race 2.
