TF Sport and John Hartshorne will once again be on double duty in ACO racing in 2022.
They paired for both the Asian Le Mans Series, before heading into the European Le Mans Series in 2021, and they will replicate that programme in 2022.
There will be a change amongst the driving talent next to Hartshorne. Jonny Adam and Henrique Chaves will be sharing the Aston Martin Vantage #95. They will be using a GT3 spec car in the Asian LMS, while the GTE spec will be used for ELMS. The AMR car is convertible from GT3 to GTE within a few hours, so the team has the possibility to do so, if they wish to do.
Jonny Adam is Aston Martin works driver, and has plenty of experience in the various Vantage models. He has won the British GT Championship four times. Adam and Hartshorne already raced together at Red Bull Ring in 2021, when Ross Gunn was called to the USA for racing in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship.
Henrique Chaves already has a season worth of experience in the ELMS, where he raced for AVF by Adrian Valles in LMP2 in 2018. He then moved on to primarily GT3 racing, where he won GT Open title in 2020, and the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe powered by AWS Sprint Cup Pro-Am title in 2021.
The livery will change from cream white to red in 2022. The previous livery had a tendency to change over the weekend, with the heat from the exhaust changing the white to a burned brown color, but if that is the reason for the livery change is unknown. But TF Sport has good experience in running the red color in previous years, plus the car is easier to spot.
The Asian Le Mans Series starts on 12 February in Dubai, while the European Le Mans Series starts on 17 April at Circuit Paul Ricard in France.
