GT12 returns to the track at VLN

Friday, July 31, 2015

Having last seen competitive track action at the Aston Martin Festival at Le Mans back in June, one of the two Aston Martin GT12 'racing' cars will return to the track at the weekend for the VLN 5 ADAC Barbarossapreis meeting.

Resorting back to the #144 number the car originally displayed back in April when it first hit the track the SP8 class car will this time be driven by Aston Martin Nurburgring Test Centre director Wolfgang Schubauer alongside both founding members of the Swiss Aston Martin Customer Team St Gallen and highly talented GT4 drivers Florian Kamelger and Andreas Baenziger.

With qualifying starting at 08:30 local the four hour race itself starts at 12:00Hrs local and should feature some 152 cars.

It will still be interesting where the Gaydon factory go with this platform as it clearly works within this sort of racing environment although Andy Palmer did day at Le Mans that one of the next projects would involve a road going variant of the V8 GTE race car that just might get re-engineered back into a race car!!

We will wait and see ………………………!!
