With both drivers’ original full-season GT3 plans turned upside-down due to the global pandemic, the pairing recently announced their 2021 Asian Le Mans Series entry, alongside Jonny Adam, and are now taking advantage of guest races to prepare for the quadruple four-hour battles in Asia.
Al Harthy and Canning were victorious at their previous visits to the Ardennes. Al Harthy took a superb win at the 2019 Total 24 Hours of Spa, alongside Salih Yoluc, Charlie Eastwood and Nicki Thiim. Full season entrants Yoluc and Eastwood currently sit third in the GT Open standings, in their #34 Vantage, with four races remaining.
It was a dramatic GT4 win for Canning in British GT’s European excursion last year, which propelled the youngster towards taking the series honours, with team mate Ash Hand. This weekend will see Canning make his competitive GT3 debut.
