A Podium For The Heart of Racing Team

A beautiful pass by Roman De Angelis meant The Heart of Racing team took their top result of the season despite adverse weather conditions, and secured a third place finish at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Starting off the day with practice, the team used the conditions to validate the setup needed should there be rain in the race. Qualifying early afternoon, the team made some improvements to secure a ninth-place starting position. During the afternoon, the rain started back up so the team put the new knowledge to good use and started the race on wet tires. Ian James handed the car off in sixth with one pit-stop to fuel and change drivers, and De Angelis took the wheel and crossed the checkered flag in third for the team’s first podium of the season.

Next up for the team is Motul Petit Le Mans where James and De Angelis will once again be joined by Aston Martin Works Driver, Darren Turner. The team returns to the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, next weekend October 15-17, 2020.
