Archie Hamilton (22, Basingstoke) is heading to the USA for a one-off drive in Grand Am’s Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge. Archie will be driving for the Multimatic Motorsports team in the #15 Aston Martin Vantage V8 Grand-Am car.
Archie’s 2013 season was curtailed when a fire destroyed the car he was driving in the International GT Open Championship. He also competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours with G Drive Racing by Delta-ADR team in an Oreca 03 Nissan.
“I’m very excited about racing with Multimatic at Lime Rock. It was a real shame that the GT Open programme came to a halt after the fire but rather than take any drive available mid-season I have focused my efforts on 2014. Things are shaping up for that but then I was asked to stand-in at Multimatic. They kindly asked me to test in January and we got on well so I was very pleased to be asked back. Hopefully I can get to grips with the track quickly and we can get a good result.”
