Silverstone - 1st October - AMOC
Just dipping our toe into this racing series, run by AMOC the Aston Martin Owners Club. It's a GT Challenge format, 50 minute race with a pitstop. Peter started the race, Matt in after the pitstop. We had many Aston V8 Vantage cars, Porsche 911s & 968s, Ferrari 360, and amongst others a DB5!
Very wet conditions in the race made things interesting. It's a GT4 spec series but this wasn't strictly followed. And in the race we were very unlucky with the safety car, which essentially gave our competitor for the top step of the podium (a 911 997 GT3 Cup car) a whole lap on us.
Despite this we were delighted with our performance and how well the West Suffolk Racing car ran. It's fantastic and a dream to drive. After the qualifying session we drew a lot of attention from spectators and fellow competitors. We were on pole by 3.5 seconds.
