Aston Martin joins Blancpain Sprint Series in Zolder and Baku

8 October 2014

Through the works entry of Beechdean AMR Aston Martin will join the Blancpain Sprint Series for the first time. During the upcoming rounds of Zolder and Baku the Vantage GT3 will be driven by Beechdean stalwart Jonny Adam and by Spanish driver Andy Soucek, who will race the Aston Martin for the first time after taking two podium finishes with the ART McLaren in this year’s Blancpain Endurance Series.

John Gaw (Aston Martin Racing Team Principal): "At Aston Martin Racing we work very closely with our partner teams, like Beechdean AMR, and this enables us to embark on joint ventures like this. We were very keen to have a works team entry in the Blancpain Sprint Series and SRO have been extremely cooperative and supportive in enabling us to get this entry together. We are also grateful to Beechdean AMR for its continued commitment to racing at the highest level. Hopefully this is the start of more Aston Martin Racing works entries in both the Blancpain Sprint and GT Series.”
