As a factory driver for Aston Martin, Adam is a winner at Le Mans (in the GT class) but it’s in British GT where he’s really made his mark. His latest success in the series was a record-extending fourth title: all of them in the last five years and, most impressively, with four different co-drivers.
Most British GT entries are driven by Pro-Am driver pairings: a partnership between professional racers like Adam and people frequently referred to as ‘gentleman drivers’, who often come to racing later in life as a hobby, maybe combining it with running a successful business.
The Pro driver’s job is not only to drive the car as fast as possible, but also to help their co-driver drive as quickly as they can thanks to coaching and advice, because speed from both is crucial to victory when they share the driving.
Adam has proven especially adept in this scenario. His first title came alongside Andrew Howard for Beechdean AMR in 2015, before joining TF Sport and Derek Johnston in 2016 (when Pirelli began supplying the series) and defending his crown. In 2018, Adam joined Optimum Motorsport, where he helped Flick Haigh make history as the first woman to win British GT’s senior title. His success has extended to Europe too, having claimed the Pro-Am title in the Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup – which uses the same Pirelli tyres – with Ahmad Al Harthy in 2017.
