Part owned by recently signed AMR Factory driver Sam Hancock, JotaSport has a history of competition in Carrera Cup, European V-Dev, and SPEED series. The signing of the contract sees the Kent-based outfit become an Aston Martin Racing Official Partner Team.
JotaSport has outlined their roadmap accordingly. Effective immediately, the team will commence an Aston Martin GT4 programme, competing at both the 2010 Spa and Silverstone 24 hour events.
As of 2011, the team will graduate to the Le Mans series (and, all things going to plan, the Le Mans 24 hours) where it will run an AMR V8 Vantage in the highly competitive, manufacturer driven GT2 category.
While all details regarding the partnership are yet to be confirmed, the agreement confirms JotaSport’s running of simultaneous GT2/4 programmes throughout 2012. With potential for further expansion to the premier prototype category (pending AMR’s yet-to-be-confirmed position future LMP1 activities).
