Tom Ferrier, TF Sport Managing Director - “It’s great to team up with The Heart of Racing and Alex Riberas. They have proven their strength over in America and we are looking forward to helping them achieve success in the GTWC’s blue riband event. Ross and Charlie are no strangers to us and we know they will be able to deliver and help us fight to the top step of the podium come race day.”

 

Ian James, The Heart of Racing Team Manager - “The Spa 24 is one of our bucket list races. Logistically, it was impossible for us to do it alone this year, so to join forces with a top-caliber team like TF Sport in the hunt for one of endurance racing’s crown jewels is a great opportunity all around. We are under no illusions of how challenging this race is. We hope to be in the mix and we trust Alex, Ross, Charlie, and the Aston Vantage GT3 will get us there.”
