The team at Generation AMR Macmillan Racing have managed to rebuild the damaged Aston Martin after the bad crash involving Matthew Graham at the wheel of their car and Phil Dryburgh in Motorbase’s Aston Martin. This means Matthew Graham and Jack Mitchell will both be back in the car ready to compete during this weekend’s round of the championship at Rockingham Motor Speedway located in Corby, Northamptonshire.
At Brands Hatch it appeared to be that the Aston had only suffered cosmetic damage but in actual fact the car needed a full rebuild including a new shell and engine back at Aston Martin headquarters.
Back at HQ both the team and Aston Martin have worked non-stop to ensure the car was finished and ready for Rockingham this weekend. They managed to turn the car from wreck to racer in just six days ahead of the second round.
The newcomers to the championship were having a very positive and potential proving weekend at Brands Hatch before disaster struck and the accident put an end to their weekend. Prior to the accident Graham had been battling for second in GT4 class against Jack Bartholomew. Both drivers were extremely lucky to walk away from the accident.
After the rebuild of the Aston Martin is complete, both Graham and Generation AMR Macmillan Racing are extremely eager to be able to demonstrate and prove just how competitive they can be and are hoping to put the disastrous opening weekend behind them. Jack Mitchell is also very eager to finally get to go out and race the GT4 Aston around the Northamptonshire circuit after not getting to race it at Brands Hatch.
