Win some - lose some for Aston Martin at VLN6

Tuesday, September 05, 2017

It was unfortunately the case of extreme opposites for the two Aston Martin cars entered into last weekends VLN6 from the Nordschleife.

For the Mathol Racing prepared Avia Racing V8 Vantage GT4, it was all smiles as the full season VLN entrant again smashed its mainly Porsche Cayman opposition to take a commanding on lap win in the SP10 class with drivers Wolfgang Weber and Daniel Schwerfeld.

For the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 however, things didn't really go their way as early structural damage was sustained to the #134 Sp8 class car from a spinning car during the dank opening lap.

Although at the time driver Peter Cate could continue, the damage to the front splitter would ultimately end the cars successful run at the infamous Green Hell just three laps from the end of the four hour race.

The next round of the VLN Series takes place on 23rd September.
