New Vantage GTE revealed a little bit more

Thursday, November 09, 2017

Today saw official confirmation of the reveal date for the new 2018 Aston Martin Vantage road car and the new Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GTE for the 21st November.

Today we also saw the release of some more video footage of the new GTE car testing at the Sebring track in Florida, footage which appears to carry the same level of official sanction as the previous video taken earlier in the year at Rockingham!

We know from the Shanghai round of the WEC last weekend that the team was testing in Florida this week (so no secret there) and we know that works drivers such as Paul Dalla-Lana, Marco Sorensen and Nicki Thiim are there on site testing. Also it now appears that from details posted upon one particular main stream site that other, non AMR factory drivers are also there testing?

We have seen the car at Rockingham, we have personally watched the car at Snetterton and now we see the car at Sebring and at no stage prior till now have we seen Michelin stickers on the side wall of the tyres so has there been a change of preference during the elongated testing schedule or is this just a comparative test from data captured last year at Sebring when Thiim tested the then newly revised 2016 car with Jonny Adam in readiness for the 2017 season??

Maybe more detail will be released from this weeks test - if not its only a couple of weeks before the official reveal so lets just hope the reveal has something left to reveal!!
