Blancpain Endurance Series – Silverstone

Leonard Motorsport AMR have entered this weekend’s UK round of the Blancpain Endurance Series at Silverstone in the PRO category. With ProDrive/AMR only 15 minutes away and a very strong Aston Martin grid it will be a battle to come out as top Aston Martin team but the team are targeting both that and a top ten finish. Leonard Motorsport have drafted in Jonny Adam who worked with Stuart and Paul earlier in the year.

Coverage is live on Motors TV 1450 Sunday.

So much kit to take!

The only dampener to the weekend was the…

However Julian is not complacent: “This season there’s a minimum pit stop time, and the cars are 10kg lighter, but there is also what I’m calling the “anti Julian Thomas” regulation which sees each driver being weighed so that accurate ballast is added to each car.”

“We also expect Team O Brien, and Team Honeywell who finished strongly in 2013, to chase us all the way. Sheradize UK are a team to look out for, as I have heard that they have been doing a lot of testing and they are already a very strong team. If Nimbus Data have…
