AMR Winter Test underway (updated)

Wednesday, February 24, 2016

The Circuit de Valencia, or the Circuit de la Comunitat Valenciana Ricardo Tormo as its otherwise known, is the destination of choice for the Aston Martin Racing (and their invited guests) 2016 Winter Test.

Built in 1999 the fourteen corner, anti-clockwise circuit to the west of the city of Valencia is more of a spiritual home to MotoGP than international GT cars but for this weekend only the circuit will be reverberating to the sound of both V8 and V12 AMR engines as all get to grips with what their respective 2016 seasons hold for them.

This event over previous years has always been held prior to the official factory announcements so information from the test has always been restricted (for obvious reasons), so with this years test now being after the event we can only hope that information and pictures will be flowing!!

Without any 'Guest List' as such being bandered about we can only surmise by a process of elimination so the attendees are not limited to

Motorbase, together with Ross Wylie (and Phil Dryburgh?) will NOT be there as they will be testing alongside their BTCC operation at Portimao, Portugal.

This is not a comprehensive as others will obviously be there, those who have yet to announce their whereabouts - we will update this list as and when information becomes available. 

Track action apparently starts tomorrow!
