Thiim actually had a 23-point deficit to Esteban Gutierrez, who was driving for Mercedes AMG. This gap then disappeared after Gutierrez encountered a technical failure at the start of the final race. After this victory, Aston Martin is now looking towards the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual. Aston Martin’s virtual team for this race will consist of Thiim and Eastwood, along with real world British team-mates Darren Turner, Jonny Adam, Alex Lynn, Ross Gunn, Richard Westbrook and Harry Tincknell.
