Beechdean AMR has confirmed its 2019 GT3 commitments, the UK-flagged team set to take on the full Le Mans Cup and British GT season with its new Aston Martin Vantage GT3.
For the season, team principal boss Andrew Howard will be joined by Aston Martin Racing junior works driver Ross Gunn in the Michelin Le Mans Cup series, and factory driver Marco Sorensen for British GT.
While it has years of experience in British GT, the programme will mark the team’s first run in the ELMS and Le Mans 24 Hours-supporting, Le Mans Cup. As ever, the season includes the pair of Road to Le Mans races on the Circuit de la Sarthe during the endurance classic’s race week and a chance to win a GTE Am Le Mans invite with a GT3 championship win.
As part of the announcement of its 2019 programme, the team also unveiled a new livery for the season, a big change from the colours it used at its first race with the new Vantage at the end of last year, the Gulf 12 Hours§ in Abu Dhabi.
“It’s an exciting time for Beechdean to be racing the new Vantage GT3 having been one of the only teams to switch from DBRS9 GT3 to the previous Vantage,” Howard said. “The calendar looks great with some of the most iconic circuits on the world, and I’m looking forward to racing with Marco and Ross and collecting some trophies along the way.”
