Aston Martin Vantage GT4
A number of familiar names will return to the British GT grid this season after Academy Motorsport confirmed that Matt Nicoll-Jones and Will Moore are to join forces aboard its Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4.
The Pershore-based squad won the category’s teams’ title in 2015 but only contested one round last season. Now Academy are back with a dual programme that sees its Aston Martin racing in British GT and the GT4 European Series Northern Cup.
Team boss Nicoll-Jones stepped away from full-time racing at the end of 2013 but did compete alongside Dennis Strandberg during the outfit’s sole British GT outing at Silverstone last season. He stays on to partner former Academy driver Moore who returns to the fold a year after graduating to the GT3 class with Optimum Motorsport.
