Motorbase Performance has announced the lineup of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 it will run under the Oman Racing Team banner in the Blancpain Endurance Series this season.

Silver-rated Ahmad Al Harthy returns for his second full season in the series, and will do so with two new teammates.

Aston Martin factory driver Jonny Adam will spearhead the campaign in the Pro Cup, while fellow Brit Daniel Lloyd (Silver) completes the trio.

“Having Jonny on board this year is fantastic, he’s a proven works driver and obviously knows the Aston very well but he’s also familiar with the Motorbase set up from racing with us in the BTCC back in 2009,” said team boss David Bartrum.

“I’ve known Dan from my days watching him in the Porsche Carrera Cup and I’ve always thought that he’s a very fine talent.

“This will be Ahmad’s third year with us and our second full season in the Blancpain and we’re confident that with our new driver line up we’re coming back to the grid stronger and wiser than last year.”
