Jonny Adam Fulfills Brands Hatch Promise


Jonny Adam helped Beechdean Aston Martin Racing to a dominant victory in the British GT Championship at Brands Hatch, fulfilling his promise of going one better than 2012.

The Scotsman was denied victory 12 months earlier by the smallest margin in the history of the series, but made sure that was not to be the case second time round, storming to victory with team-mate Andrew Howard.

Howard started the race for the duo from second place, taking the lead in the early stages and driving a flawless stint before handing the car over to the works Aston Martin driver. Adam then continued where Howard left off, pulling out a healthy lead all the way to the flag and placing their Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 at the top of the championship standings with just three races to go.

“It was great to get a victory as we lost by the smallest of margins in British GT history here back in 2012,” said a delighted Adam. “We qualified well and Andrew’s first stint was flawless, which set me up for a good opportunity to take victory.

“To be leading the championship at this stage is very important and a great feeling, but it’s a small gap and there is still a lot to play for in terms of points at both Zandvoort, which we haven’t been to before, and the final round at Donington Park. Our aim has always been the title, and we will continue to work hard to improve our speed and performance for the rest of the season to be in the mix going into the final event.”
