First test for AMattheis Vantage

Saturday, July 07, 2012

AMattheis have completed their first test with the new V12 Vantage GT3 at Rio de Janeiro, the Brazilian team received their chassis at the end of June and have wasted no time in getting to know the V12 powered racer.

Xandy Negrao and Xandinho Negrao tested the car for the first time on Monday (02/07) during private testing at the Circuit de Jacarepagua, "We're still in the process of learning the car, but from what we saw in testing, the car met our expectations and showed a positive result," commented Team Manager, Andreas Mattheis.

"The Vantage is totally different from Lamborghini, we need more tests to develop and learn the Aston" said Xandinho. "I had good impressions of the car, which behaved well. I believe that Aston has the potential to be at the front," added Xandy. The team are yet to decide whether they will enter the new car in the next round of the championship, or if they’ll continue with the Lamborghini whilst they develop the new car.

The Farther and son duo currently hold second place in the Top Series Championship after the first two rounds. The champion will resume at Sao Paulo July 22nd.
