Adam loses FIA WEC As­ton drive

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Jonathan Adam re­mains con­fi­dent that he has a fu­ture in the FIA World Endurance Cham­pi­onship, de­spite los­ing his seat with the As­ton Martin Rac­ing team.

AMR last week an­nounced it would trim its WEC ros­ter to run just two driv­ers in each of its V12 Van­tages in­stead of the orig­i­nal three. Both Adam and Fer­nando Rees have dropped off the en­try, with Dar­ren Turner now shar­ing one car with Richie Stan­away and Nicki Thiim shar­ing with Marco Sorensen.

Adam, who made his de­but at Le Mans last month, will now con­cen­trate on his Bri­tish GT and Blanc­pain com­mit­ments with AMR.

“It’s not over for me in the WEC,” said Adam. “I can un­der­stand the de­ci­sion, but ob­vi­ously it’s dis­ap­point­ing also. I know if I keep do­ing a good job then there will be another chance and hope­fully I’ll be back.”
