Generation AMR SuperRacing will compete for the overall GT4 European Series title this season, confirming an Aston Martin Vantage GT4 for nine rounds of the new-look championship.

The David Appleby Engineering-run entry was on the British GT Championship grid last season, but drivers James Holder and Matthew George, along with the SuperRacing name, will make the switch to the European series this season.

They will enter the six Southern Cup rounds across France and Spain, as well as three of the six Northern Cup rounds – at Brands Hatch, Zandvoort and Nürburgring – to enter the overall title battle.

“We are very much looking forward to competing in the 2017 GT4 European Series Southern Cup, along with selected outings in the Northern Cup to qualify for the overall title with our Aston Martin Vantage GT4,” commented team manager James Appleby.

“We are equally pleased to continue with James and Matt, who displayed great chemistry as team-mates in 2016 while also getting along really well outside the car.

“We had our first taste of racing action on the European scene at the end of last year and it did not take long for us to commit for a whole campaign thereafter.

“Our Vantage GT4 has already shown front-running pace with multiple podiums and fastest laps last year, and we are certainly looking to carry the momentum forward into 2017.”

Holder, the co-founder of fashion brand SuperDry, made a strong impression in British GT last season, before taking part in the Gulf 12 Hours last December.

George meanwhile is a karting graduate who has since worked as a technician and coach for Base Performance Simulators, and joined Holder in his British GT entry in 2016.

“This will be only my second year racing GT cars so I am entering the 2017 campaign with a level-headed approach, even more so when I am new to all Southern Cup circuits,” George added.

“I expect this season to be another major experience-gathering year with a steep learning curve.

“All I want now is to gear up and go back racing!”
