Aston Martin Racing is bringing five new Vantage GT3 and GT4s to the British GT Championship in 2024. Among the household names to feature in the line-up is Aston Martin Aramco Driver Ambassador and Head of F1 Academy Jessica Hawkins, who will make her championship debut at the Oulton Park season opener (29 March–1 April).

Racing for the Beechdean AMR team, she joins team owner and series veteran Andrew Howard as the pairing compete in the Silver-Am class category at the wheel of a brand-new green Aston Martin Vantage GT3.

Hawkins' racing pedigree is undeniable; as a podium finisher in W Series and race winner in TCR UK series, she has also driven Formula One machinery in an Aston Martin F1 car test at the Hungaroring last year and, most recently, became the first woman to drive the latest generation of F1 car. The 29-year-old was also one of several drivers who helped to develop aspects of the Vantage GT3 during its testing programme through the winter.

"I'm very excited to be making my debut in the British GT Championship with Beechdean AMR," said Jessica. "The new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 is a beautiful racing car and is already proving in other series that it has the inherent performance to be a very serious contender.

"To be able to race this car while combining my duties with Aston Martin Aramco is not only an excellent next step in my racing career but also a great opportunity to gain valuable experience as an endurance driver. Beechdean AMR is an excellent team with a great heritage. I can't wait to get started."
