Globe-trotting Kirkcaldy racer Jonny Adam will speed into the new year after being signed up to race this weekend’s Dubai 24 Hours.

Adam, along with fellow Aston Martin Racing works driver Stefan Mucke, and British GT Championship driver Paul White, will be competing in the Strata 21 V12 Vantage GT3, run by experienced KPM Racing team.

The twice-around-the-clock endurance event is the first race of the 2015 season for the Aston Martin Racing works drivers who both had success in 2014 – Mucke in the FIA World Endurance Championship and Adam in Blancpain GT Series and British GT Championship.

The pair will race the same V12 Vantage GT3 with which the Aston Martin Racing works team contested the Nurburgring 24 Hours in June last year, but this time 
it will don Strata 21’s red, black and white Milltek Sport livery.

Adam commented: “This is my fourth season racing the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 and its still as enjoyable to drive as the first time I tested it at the end of 2011.

“It is one of the most competitive GT3 cars on the market at the moment and the Dubai Autodrome layout will suit its strengths with its powerful V12 engine and efficient aero package.

“Our driver line up is strong with Stefan and Paul, and I look forward to working with the engineers and mechanics at KPM Racing.”
