Andrew Watson

Back to Motorsport

2019 has seen a huge step in Andrew’s career, signing with Aston Martin Racing, and in the process becoming an Aston Martin Junior. The role as an AMR Junior will see Andrew become a reserve for the Factory Professionals, a mentor for the twenty-three Academy Drivers and play a vital role in the development and testing of new race cars.

Andrew's 2019 racing will see him once again race in the European Blancpain Endurance GT Series - a move which has seen Andrew rejoin the Garage 59 team, following their switch to the Aston Martin Vantage GT3's.

Watson has successfully progressed through the ranks of GT racing; racing in the Ginetta GT Supercup G55, Michelin Ginetta GT4 Supercup and, most recently, the international Blancpain GT Series since 2016.

Andrew’s 2018 season highlights include achieving pole position in AM class at the Blancpain Spa 24 Hours & pole position in PRO Class at Paul Ricard. Andrew also went onto finish in 1st position at Brands Hatch in the Blancpain Sprint Silver Class. Andrew also achieved an excellent podium position at the 1000 kilometres of Paul Ricard as Andrew and the #58 Garage 59 McLaren qualified on the front row and led the majority of the race, before eventually coming home in 3rd place - marking Andrew’s first overall podium finish in the Blancpain GT Series.
