Adam adds Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries en­try

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­tish GT cham­pion Jonathan Adam is plan­ning to race in three cham­pi­onships over the same week­end this April af­ter adding a full Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries cam­paign to his sched­ule.

Adam will share a Beechdean Mo­tor­sport As­ton Martin Van­tage GTE with fel­low Bri­tish cham­pion An­drew Howard and Alex Macdowall in this year’s ELMS, which be­gins at Sil­ver­stone on April 16.

Scots­man Adam also has cam­paigns signed for Bri­tish GT [with TF Sport] and the FIA World En­durance Cham­pi­onship with the fac­tory AMR team. All three cham­pi­onships race on the same week­end, with ELMS sup­port­ing the WEC at Sil­ver­stone and Bri­tish GT kick­ing off at Brands Hatch.

Adam said he was plan­ning to still do all three events. He said: “It will be ab­so­lutely crazy.

“I’m hop­ing to do all three cham­pi­onships across the two days and not miss any­thing. It’ll be a chal­lenge, but with he­li­copter trans­port be­tween Sil­ver­stone and Brands it’s doable look­ing at the timeta­bles.

“The ELMS race is on Satur­day, along with Bri­tish GT qual­i­fy­ing. I’ll have to split my stints in the WEC on Sun­day with the Bri­tish GT race.” ● Adam will also con­test this year’s Blancpain En­durance Cup af­ter join­ing the Mo­tor­base Per­for­mance team. Adam will share a Van­tage GT3 with Ah­mad Al Harthy and Devon Modell.
