Customer testing of new GT3 continues

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

After the first customer test for the new Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT3 that ran at Silverstone last week, tomorrow sees a continuation of that extensive testing programme by the factory and its customer teams with another such test at Donington Park.

Having just taken delivery of his own road going variant of the new turbo charged Vantage, TF Sport's Derek Johnston was again in the hot seat of a new race car at the circuit almost four years to the day since he first tested the outgoing V12 Vantage with Tom Ferrier's team.

We saw that TF Sport's Charlie Eastwood was amongst the first 'third party' drivers to test the car at Silverstone last week presumably due to his own commitments this week?

Todays test was under the watchful eye of AMR's Ross Gunn and Darren Turner as the remainder of the factory driver squad are readying themselves for the next round of the World Endurance Championship from Silverstone this weekend.

It is expected, although not confirmed, that TF Sport shall be one of the first Customer Teams to receive the new Vantage GT3 car.
