Aston Martin steal the Hill at Goodwood Festival of Speed

Monday, July 03, 2017

We would like to think that we have a relatively balanced social media stream coming into The-Advantage covering most lines of motor sport and the marques competing within them, but having watching four days of 'awesomeness' coming out of Goodwood last weekend you would be hard stretched to beat the achievements of Aston Martin.

Featuring four days of sheer indulgent, inclusive and sometimes exclusive access from not just the Aston Martin Lagonda parent company but also that of Aston Martin Racing, fans of motor cars and motor racing cars alike bore witness to everything that it good about the English marque, with some featuring the added bonus of a celebrity figures of note.

This years Festival of Speed event saw the exclusive launch of the heavily revised and extremely exclusive Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro at the hands of AMR works driver Darren Turner as well as the first public running of the even more exclusive Vantage AMR Pro track car.

Mixing these two beasts with that of the 2017 Le Mans 24Hour GTE Pro winning car as well as the latest hard wear from the road car business running up the twisting hill track through Lord March's country estate, we're sure that all who attended and those who watched the live stream were left suitably contented.

For Aston Martin Lagonda - its back to the development bubble ready for the next iconic model whilst for Aston Martin Racing - its back to the grindstone in readiness for the next round of the World Endurance Championship from Germany in two weeks time.
