Where to watch today’s gen­tle­men rac­ers

VANTAGE - - Twin Test Db4 Gt & V8 Vantage N24 -

track Ver­sions of the V8 Van­tage are el­i­gi­ble for a num­ber of race se­ries. In the UK, the best place to see them is in the newly re­named As­ton Martin GT Chal­lenge, run by the As­ton Martin Own­ers Club.

The AM GT Chal­lenge in­cor­po­rates classes for ev­ery­thing from stan­dard road­go­ing V8 Van­tages on E-marked tyres (just the thing for today’s gen­tle­man racer!) right through to N24s and GT4 race cars on Dun­lop slicks. If you’d like a taste of GT rac­ing, the Strat­ton Mo­tor Com­pany also has a num­ber of GT4S for hire.

In a new de­vel­op­ment for 2016, the se­ries now in­cor­po­rates the Multi-mar­que Chal­lenge, which will al­low sim­i­lar cars from other mar­ques, such as Fer­rari and Porsche, to com­pete against the As­tons.

Races will be of 50 min­utes’ du­ra­tion, and each will fea­ture a manda­tory pit-stop with an op­tional driver-change. It should make for a great sea­son’s rac­ing. More de­tails at www.amoc­rac­ing.org
