Andrew Jarman will continue his long-standing association with Aston Martin this weekend as he heads east to compete in the GT Challenge Japan.

After a successful end to his 2016 Avon Tyres British GT Championship season which included back to back podiums and pole positions, Jarman will compete for Alpha Classics Racing at Fuji Motor Speedway in their GT3 Aston Martin Racing V12 Vantage.

The MK racer is no stranger to the Aston Martin, having won the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge in 2013 and finishing runner up in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship - GT4 class in 2014.

“It’s great to be back in an Aston GT3 car after the long winter break,” he said. “This will be my second time racing in Fuji (Japan) and somewhere I have always wished to come back to.

“Alpha Classics Racing is a relatively new team in Japan but with big aspirations and I’m delighted to be joining them next weekend and hoping we can have a strong result.”

While his immediate focus is on the race this weekend, Jarman is yet to finalise his plans for the 2016 and where he will be racing.

But he says plans are afoot to keep him on the grid this year.

He added: “I’m close to finalising my plans for the rest of the season and hope I can advance on my experience gained in British GT last year.

“GT3 is without doubt for me the best category in motorsport and where I want to be .”
