Another long one down in southern France

Monday, October 29, 2018

With useable track time fast running out in Europe a number of the Aston Martin Racing contingent have made their way down to the Paul Ricard circuit in southern France to help finalise the development of the factory's 2019 V8 Vantage GT3 and GT4 platforms.

Since the GT3's inaugural outing at the Aston Martin Racing Festival at Le Mans in June the team have been busy conducting numerous developmental and customer tests around Europe to finalise the cars development in readiness for (a) delivery to its customer teams in time for pre-season testing in early 2019 and (b) its final homologation process in early March 2019.

This weekend we see that drivers (but not limited to) Ross Gunn, Jonny Adam, Alex Lynn, Darren Turner, Marco Sorensen and Nicki Thiim have all made the trip down to the circuit in readiness for what has been labelled as a thirty hour continuous test. We could also assume that other drivers with strong AMR links will be in attendance as well.

With there still being a further three weeks until the final round of 2018 for the World Endurance Championship in Shanghai, China this event will at least allow their attending WEC driver contingent to stay race car active.
