As­ton Martin classes get Bri­tish GT slots

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The As­ton Martin Own­ers Club’s Innes Ire­land Cup and 50s Sports Car se­ries will ap­pear on the Bri­tish GT sup­port bill at two rounds this sea­son.

The his­toric cat­e­gories will share a grid at the Oul­ton Park and Sil­ver­stone Bri­tish GT meet­ings this year, as well as hav­ing races at AMOC’S events.

The re­named As­ton Martin GT Chal­lenge – for­merly the GT4 Cup – and In­ter­mar­que se­ries will also ap­pear along­side Bri­tish GT at three events in 2016.

More de­tails have been an­nounced about the new classes in the GT Chal­lenge, with two divi­sions open to non-as­tons. The Mul­ti­Mar­que GT4 Cup will cater for any other GT4 car, while the Multi-mar­que Chal­lenge is for all post-1995 sports and sa­loon cars.

As­ton Club Rac­ing di­rec­tor Roger Bennington said the changes have been well re­ceived and have gen­er­ated a lot of in­ter­est. “A lot of peo­ple have older cars that don’t fit any­where else,” he said. “But they would fit into the Mul­ti­Mar­que Chal­lenge.”
