GT8 RE­TURNS TO THE ’RING

VANTAGE - - Bulletin Amr Concepts -

As we went to press, an As­ton Martin fac­tory race team was pre­par­ing to con­test the Nür­bur­gring 24-hours (N24) for the 12th year. The team is rac­ing the close-topro­duc­tion-spec Van­tage GT8 that per­formed so well in last year’s N24 – in­deed the GT8 led the SP8 class for much of the 2016 race be­fore crash­ing out in chal­leng­ing con­di­tions. This year’s driver line-up in­cludes As­ton Martin Rac­ing stars Dar­ren Turner and Nicki Thiim, and the ac­tion was due to start at 15.30 on Satur­day May 27.
