Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

An­drew Jar­man will re­turn to Bri­tish GT at Oul­ton Park later this month, af­ter re­plac­ing Robin Mar­riott in the Strat­ton Mo­tor­sport As­ton Martin Van­tage GT4.

The 35-year-old drove a GT3 As­ton for TF Sport last sea­son, tak­ing two podi­ums, and was run­ner-up in the GT4 class in 2014 along­side Devon Modell.

Jar­man will now part­ner ex­pe­ri­enced As­ton racer David Tinn at Strat­ton.

“Robin felt he didn’t have the ex­pe­ri­ence to com­pete,” said Strat­ton boss Roger Ben­ning­ton. “It was also dif­fi­cult for us hav­ing two rook­ies to­gether and so we made the de­ci­sion to bring some­one with more ex­pe­ri­ence in. We won the As­ton Martin GT Chal­lenge in 2013 with An­drew and we know him well.”

Ben­ning­ton said he was un­sure whether the team’s Lo­tus Evora would re­turn in Cheshire af­ter it was given a weight penalty un­der the series’ bal­ance of per­for­mance rules at the first round at Brands.
