Season-Best Result For The Heart of Racing Team

Wednesday, Sep 09 950

The Heart of Racing Team enjoyed their best finish yet of the 2020 season at Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta today. Drivers Ian James, Roman De Angelis and Aston Martin works driver Darren Turner were behind the wheel of the #23 Aston Martin Vantage GT3, and once again proved the team’s capability as a competitive GTD contender.

Starting from the back following a tire-strategy decision, Ian James navigated the rocky start and put in three expert stints, gaining ground to hand the car over in fifth shortly past the two-hour mark. In jumped De Angelis who put in a clean stint despite a seat issue causing the team to make an impromptu driver change. Having dropped back a couple of places with the change, Turner took the wheel and again had the Aston Martin moving up positions. With less than two hours to go, Turner, in seventh, was chasing down those in-front. De Angelis returned to the wheel for the final stint bringing the car home in sixth.

Following the team’s eighth-place result last time out at Virginia, and after this weekend’s progress despite damper gremlins limiting practice time and hampering qualifying, the team continues to make headway with the car. 

The team looks forward to the next race, the Acura SportsCar Challenge at Mid Ohio, September 25-27, 2020.
