Aston Martin Challenge joins Britcar

Vantage GT4
The Aston Martin Vantage GT4 Challenge was launched at Autosport International by Prodrive chairman David Richards and Britcar organiser James Tucker.

The Vantage GT4 Challenge will take place within the popular Britcar series and is open to all Aston Martin Vantage GT4s, including the Vantage N24. Eligible drivers will compete in the regular Britcar GT Championship and score points towards both that series and the Vantage GT4 Challenge. The winner will have the opportunity to test drive the Aston Martin Vantage GT2 car.

Aston Martin chairman, David Richards, said: “The Britcar championship is an excellent series for the Aston Martin Vantage GT4. With a combination of both endurance and speed, it will play to the strengths of our car, which has already proven itself by winning its class at the Nurburgring and Britcar 24 hour races. I’m sure the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 Challenge will also draw interest from drivers competing in other GT4 series, looking for endurance racing experience.”

The Vantage GT4 Challenge will cost no more than the standard entry fee for the Britcar series, and all entries will be managed directly by Britcar.
