London, UK – 2nd February 2015:
2014 British GT (GT4) runner-up Andrew Jarman is set for a high-speed race to the British GT (GT3) Championship title with Aston Martin Racing Partner Team, TF Sport after announcing a title sponsorship deal with high-speed rail operator, Eurostar, for the 2015 season.
Eurostar is the only high speed train that directly links the UK to France and Belgium via the Channel Tunnel and over the last 20 years, has carried more than 150 million passengers, opening up over 100 destinations across Europe.
With a distinctive race car livery based on the new Eurostar e320 design, Andrew will also carry the Eurostar logo across his overalls, race helmet and crew team kit with a number of exciting initiatives planned on and off-track throughout the season for the Eurostar business.
Eurostar recently unveiled its new train – the e320 – which has a top speed of up to 198.9mph (320KPH), much like that of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 Andrew will be driving this season.
Commenting on the announcement Andrew said: “I am thrilled to welcome Eurostar onboard as my title sponsor for this season and I’m extremely proud to be representing such an iconic brand as part of my graduation to the GT3 category. I would like to thank Eurostar for giving me this opportunity and welcome them to sportscar racing.
After narrowly missing out on the GT4 title last year, I am looking forward to the challenge ahead and delighted to be staying with the Aston Martin Racing family and Official Partner Team TF Sport for a second season. The British GT Championship is one of the best in the world and the driver line up this year looks even stronger; you always want to manage expectations but at this level you have to go into a season with one goal, to win and that’s the aim for this year”.
