Beechdean gets Turner for ELMS

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Beechdean Motorsport has drafted in As­ton Martin fac­tory driver Dar­ren Turner for this week­end’s Euro­pean Le Mans Se­ries opener, with pro driver Jonathan Adam pri­ori­tis­ing British GT.

Turner will race Beechdean’s AMR Van­tage GTE along­side team owner An­drew Howard and Alex Mac­dowall in Satur­day’s first round at Sil­ver­stone. Adam was due to race the car, but with British GT tak­ing place on the same week­end at Brands Hatch, the Scots­man has to be in Kent to qual­ify with the TF Sport team.

Adam will then do dou­ble duty in both the two-hour British GT race on Sun­day and the six-hour FIA WEC event at Sil­ver­stone.

Turner, who shared a Van­tage GT3 with Howard in British GT in 2010, said: “It will be fun driv­ing with An­drew again but ELMS looks strong so we will be in for a hard-fought race.”
