Jordan Albert said, “I’m extremely happy to be joining the Beechdean AMR team and racing in the British GT championship in 2016, they’re proven Championship winners and with their support I’m aiming to be competitive right from the first round. I have tested the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 car and immediately felt comfortable. As it is my first season in a GT car it’s going to be a challenging year ahead but I am fully focused on the task. After racing for two years in single seaters I feel the time is right to make the switch to GT racing and have been working very hard to make this happen. I am also very happy to be racing alongside Jack Bartholomew, we raced against each other this year in the BRDC F4 championship and get on very well, I think we will make a very competitive partnership”.
With Aston Martin Racing holding such a strong position in GT motorsport, this is the ideal environment for Jordan to expand his horizons and improve on his already formidable talents inside a proven, winning team. 2016 promises a lot, is expecting a lot, we won’t find Jordan Albert waiting.
