British GT driver Jonny Adam is replacing Rob Bell for the FIA World Endurance Championship 6 Hours of Nurburgring this weekend.
He will be driving the #97 LMGTE Pro Aston Martin Racing Vantage V8 alongside Darren Turner and Stefan Mucke.
This comes after winning at the Snetterton British GT round with Andrew Howard for Beechdean AMR, a successful weekend which saw the team’s GT4 crew win their class championship.
“I know Darren [Turner] and Stefan [Mucke] well and couldn’t be joining two better guys for this race,” he said. “We have to be aiming for a podium and to try and secure as many manufacturer points as possible for Aston Martin Racing.
“The GTE version of the Vantage has slightly less power but more aerodynamic grip than the GT3 car, so you have to be very precise and understand how to consistently extract the best from it across every lap.
“That suits my driving style and I know the Nurburgring GP circuit having been there already this year, so hopefully I can play my part in delivering a strong result for AMR in what is one of the biggest events on the calendar.”
