Aston Martin classes get British GT slots
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.”
