Earlier this month Aston Martin Racing quietly announced a new technical partnership with a team called R-Motorsport who will operate as the racing division of Aston Martin St Gallen, the brands leading Swiss dealerships.

That, together with todays announcement that Aston Martin will be entering into an innovation partnership with Red Bull Racing to create the latest hyper car - Project AM-RB 001 there appears to be a link between that project, AML and this new team?

R-Motorsports subsidiary company, AF Racing AG will provide a european wide parts and race car distribution service to other Aston Martin Racing customer and partner teams from its Swiss bases and the team will also be about to support other AMR teams entered into the VLN Championship whilst racing their own V8 Vantage GT4 under the R-Motorsport banner at those events.

Company bosses Andreas Baenziger and Florian Kamelger joined AMR at their winter test last month at Valencia where that team and their prospective clients were able to sample the characteristics of the V12 Vantage GT3 and V8 Vantage GT4 with the help and assistance of the factory engineers being on site as well.

John Gaw, Managing Director of Aston Martin Racing, said: “We are delighted to introduce
R-Motorsport into the Aston Martin Racing family and we look forward to supporting the team in every aspect of its motorsport programme for the future, while providing technical support as and when required”.

Florian Kamelger, Managing Director of AF Racing AG, stated: “We are proud to enter into this technical partnership with Aston Martin Racing. It gives us the opportunity to get even closer to motorsport and to build up customer racing on a professional level. ‘R-Motorsport’ will become a brand that will be recognised for racing with Aston Martin”.

David King, Head of Global Motorsports Aston Martin, said: “Motorsport is the soul of every Aston Martin, and our cars are successfully competing on race tracks and in series around the world. We welcome R-Motorsport to become a part of the family of customer teams who race with race cars of our brand”.
