TRG-AMR lodge Le Mans 24hr entry

Friday, January 18, 2013

Aston Martin Racing’s North American Partner, TRG have today announced that they have lodged an entry for the Le Mans 24 hours.

TRG’s Vantage is likely to join a second GTE-AM Vantage, with the works team hoping to field two 2013 spec Vantage GTEs in the Pro Class. The team will also field the car in the full American Le Mans Series alongside their campaigns in Grand-AM and Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge with the V12 Vantage GT(3) and V8 Vantage GS (GT4).

The California-based team's Vantage GTE will be built to the same spec as the works car which won the Shanghai WEC, with Aston Martin Racing preferring not to release the 2013 until they have run it themselves meaning customers have a proven race car that will be both reliable and competitive - a strategy they implemented with the DBR9 which went on to win multiple races in the hands of both the factory and customer teams.

Entries for Le Mans 24 Hours and FIA World Endurance Championship will be announced on Friday 1st February 2013 in Paris.
