Beechdean AMR will contest the two final Blancpain Sprint Series rounds at Zolder and Baku with its Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3.

The race at Zolder will mark the debut of Aston Martin in the Blancpain Sprint Series. Aston Martin Racing works driver Jonny Adam will race alongside Andy Soucek in the two events.

“Its a great opportunity to drive with such a great team with good results and alongside a factory driver,” said Soucek, who has not driven the Vantage before. “It’s a big challenge but I’m confident I can do a good job.”

“I know Zolder very well as I’ve driven there a lot – I actually did my first GT test there. So, I know the track, I just need to use the practice sessions to learn the Vantage GT3.”

“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,” Aston Martin Racing Team Principal John Gaw said.

“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.”
