It’s been a long and eventful journey for Jonny Adam, from his early days instructing at Knockhill to racing in and winning the World’s greatest race – the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
On a recent trip to Knockhill, we caught up with the most winningest driver in British GT Championship history to chat about those early days and his rise to prominence as part of the Aston Martin Racing stable.
Jonny can also wrap up his 3rd British GT crown this weekend when he and partner Flick Haigh enter the final round of the season at Donington Park. They enter with a comfortable 27.5 lead and should things go their way this weekend, they’ll both rewrite British GT Championship history. Jonny will become the only driver to ever win 3 British GT titles, and partner Flick will become the first woman to win a British GT title outright. A sixth place finish this weekend should do for the Optimum Motorsport pairing, but it’s hardly a done deal.
However, one major title already tucked away in Jonny’s locker is his 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans win. A thrilling last lap battle with the no. 63 Corvette of Jordan Taylor enthralled armchair fans and the thousands at Le Mans in equal measure. And, to retrospectively celebrate that famous win and Jonny’s ties to the Aston Martin Experience at Knockhill, we’re offering you a super 24% discount on the Aston Martin Experience at Knockhill for 24 hours. Simply head online and quote LEMANS24 and receive 24% off our Aston Martin Experiences, and who knows, Jonny might even be your instructor on the day.
Jonny has also kindly signed 24 vouchers as well, so when you purchase, your voucher will be signed by the man himself; an extra keepsake of your visit to Knockhill.
We’d obviously like to wish Jonny and partner Flick the best of luck for Donington this weekend and continued success for Jonny as part of Aston Martin Racing.
