Ahlers & Bryant Again
Keith Ahlers and his Team Aero Morgan will be back for another crack
at British GTs this season – and Oliver Bryant will be sharing
the car (in the GT Cup Class) for a second season.
The Morgan finished every race it started in 2005,
and for the new season, the suspension has been upgraded, to make
the best use of the Avon tyres.
“I’m delighted that Oliver Bryant returns
for another season in the Morgan,” says the car owner. “It’s
a great vote of confidence in the car and the team. He proved to
be very fast last year and a great team player. I’m sure our
work updating the car over the winter will keep us competitive for
relaxed, but very serious, approach to his racing has found a good
match in the younger Bryant – recently voted dsc’s Rookie
of the Year in the UK. Unfortunately the internet hadn’t been
invented when Keith Ahlers made his racing debut!
“Last year we proved the Morgan was a winner
and I’m sure we can do it again,” said the ROTY.
Oliver Bryant has other plans too this year, which
are likely to include the FIA GT3 Championship – plus selected
LMS races, and the Le Mans 24 Hours (in a prototype).
He and Keith
Ahlers took two wins in the 2005 British GT Championship, in the
Sunday races at Thruxton and Mondello Park. They’ll again
be up against a fleet of Porsches again this season. It’s
great to have the Morgan back.
Here they are
after that first win, at Thruxton last May.
