Aston gears up for Daytona

Aston Martin will bring some of the most rapid drivers for the Daytona 24 hours race in January 2021.

TF Sport will enter the GTD category with the perhaps most serious effort at Daytona so far.

The defending Le Mans champions will bring Charlie Eastwood and Richard Westbrook, as the fast and experienced drivers.

Add Ben Keating to that, who has done numerous laps at Daytona. It will, however, be the first time for Keating to race an Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3, but he’s usually very good at adapting. He did compete in both an LMP2 and GTD car in the 2020 edition – so doing something like 8 hours during the 24 hour period.

The final driver in the car will be Maxwell Root. That might ring a bell for Le Mans fans, where he shared the JMW Motorsport Ferrari with Jan Magnussen and Richard Heistand at Le Mans 2020. Root knows the track from previous years, where he has been competing in Porsche Cup races.

Aston Martin has been present at Daytona for several years. They had two cars entered for the 2020 edition, but that was more gentlemen related than Eastwood/Westbrook/Keating/Root.

The entries for the Rolex 24 at Daytona keep getting announced one by one, and everything points towards an incredible field for the 2021 edition.
