Devon Modell made a triumphant return to the racetrack in 2013 following a four-year sabbatical and quickly emerged as a force to be reckoned with in many of the world’s most prestigious endurance championships.
The British racer – a Geography graduate from Lancaster University – capped off the 2013 season with a victory in the Michelin Clio Cup Series’ ‘Autumn Cup’ at Rockingham Motor Speedway, before making a seamless transition to endurance racing in the 2014 24H Dubai.
Modell – a prolific Kart racer and the 2005 Stars of Tomorrow Rotax MiniMax Champion – finished runner-up in his maiden British GT foray and remained in the fight for the GT4 class title until the final throes of the 2014 season, to be selected for the prestigious Aston Martin Racing Evolution Academy.
In 2015, Modell piloted a Speedworks Motorsport Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 to the 24H Series SP3 class Drivers’ and Teams’ titles and he returned for another assault on the 24H Dubai with the same team, car and co-drivers in 2016.
Modell dovetailed his 24H Series commitments with a Blancpain Endurance Series campaign, in which he most notably achieved a podium finish in the blue-riband Total 24 Hours of Spa, and he continued to do so in 2016 as teammate to Jonny Adam and Ahmad Al Harthy in an Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 prepared by his local Motorbase Performance team.
For 2017 Modell’s horizons broadened into prototypes, making his Asian Le Mans Series debut at the wheel of a Eurasia Motorsport-prepared LMP3 after signing a new management contract with BAM Motorsports Group for 2017 and beyond. He has made appearances since in various championships with GT4 and GT3 spec machineries.
Modell racer piloted a WINEURASIA Ligier JS P3 in the 4 Hours of Sepang – the fourth and final event on the 2016-17 Asian LMS schedule – and then went on to join the lancpain GT Series Asia with Craft-Bamboo Racing, securing a podium position in just his second outing with the team at the demanding Suzuka circuit and then adding two more in the closing stages of the season.
