Adam to pull dou­ble duty by com­bin­ing Oul­ton Park and the Nur­bur­gring 24 Hours

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jonathan Adam will do dou­ble duty across Europe this week­end, split­ting his Bri­tish GT du­ties with an as­sault on the Nur­bur­gring 24 Hours.

As well as shar­ing his TF Sport-run Van­tage GT3, Adam will also race a fac­tory As­ton Martin Rac­ing-run ma­chine with Fer­nando Rees, Mathias Lauda and Richie Stan­away in the Ger­man en­durance show­piece.

Adam will spend much of the week in Ger­many for prac­tice and qual­i­fy­ing around the Nord­schleife, be­fore fly­ing back to Manch­ester Air­port on Fri­day night ready to do prac­tice and qual­i­fy­ing at Oul­ton Park.

Adam will miss the start of the N24H to do so, be­fore fly­ing back to Ger­many on Satur­day evening ready to do the night and early morn­ing stints with the fac­tory team on Sun­day while Bri­tish GT ob­serves Oul­ton Park’s si­lent day on Sun­day. Adam will then fly back to Manch­ester af­ter the N24H fin­ishes on Sun­day, ready for the two races on Mon­day.

“It will be hec­tic, but I’m feel­ing up for it,” said Adam. “With four of us shar­ing the Van­tage GT3 in Ger­many it’s fine for me to miss the first few hours of the race and then jump in. I’ll be back in the UK at about 2300hrs on Sun­day, so should be rested in time for Bri­tish GT.”
