Leonard Motorsport AMR has announced it will join the 2015 Blancpain Endurance Series grid with its V12 Vantage GT3 and an all-British driver line-up of Stuart Leonard, Paul Wilson and Michael Meadows.

The Aston Martin Racing-associated team competed at three rounds of the BES champion last year and is ready to contest a full campaign in the Pro-Am class.

Meadows, who is a two-time Porsche Carrera Cup winner, believes Leonard Motorsport AMR have a competitive package and feels they can hit the ground running and win races from the off.

"We made significant progress throughout last year. With the V12 Vantage GT3 we have a good package that will be competitive," Meadows said. "The aim is obviously to go and win some races, something I feel is certainly achievable."

The team has come together well over the winter, and we want to use our experience from the events last year to give ourselves the best chance. Personally, the highlight will be competing in Total 24 Hours of Spa again, and although we showed well last year, this year a podium has to be the target."

The team will have a highly competitive car in the shape of an Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3, which took victory at Silverstone in 2013 and second place at Baku in 2014.

Leonard is delighted to be joining the BES championship and said the knowledge they picked up competing in three rounds last year will be used as the foundations for their 2015 campaign.

"We are very excited to be back in what we see as the best GT racing series in the world," Leonard said. "The quality of drivers and teams is unrivalled and, as competitive drivers, that's where we want measure ourselves; against the best. We have learned a lot in our collective first season of GT3 racing and we look forward in taking that knowledge into a campaign where we hope we can challenge for Pro-Am class honours."
