No time to rest at R-Motorpsort with their busiest season yet still to commence

Wednesday, February 20, 2019

Swiss based R-Motorsport and its affiliate AF Racing certainly remain the team of the here and now as well as the future for both Aston Martin and Aston Martin Racing with 2019 certainly being the busiest that the Saint Gallen team have ever been.

Having competed in the Blancpain GT Endurance Series with race winning success aboard two examples of the now outgoing V12 Vantage GT3 to then see out the year with one of their new V8 turbo charged Vantage GT3's at the Gulf 12Hr event in December, 2019 couldn't have started any better for the team and their Arden/Jota technical partners with a near perfection send off for its V12 Vantage GT3 at the Bathurst 12hrs in Australia last month with a P2 overall finish.

That momentum within the team and how that all fits into the Aston Martin Lagonda/Aston Martin Racing jigsaw continued at an unabated pace this week with two sets of driver announcements and then a 'indicative car' reveal today from their Swiss HQ for one of their next steps - this time into this seasons German DTM series.

Yesterdays announced drivers of Daniel Juncadella and Ferdinand Habsburg saw them join team favourite Jake Dennis and experienced DTM racer Paul Di Resta within the teams assault on the nine round Championship with HWA AG prepared Aston Martin Vantage silhouette cars. Presently, these cars have yet to be completed but today the team presented a very artistic impression of what the car may look like when the cars hit the Hockenheim circuit for the first time in early May.

These announcements also do not detract from the teams other ongoing GT commitments with their second V8 Vantage GT3 imminently due for arrival ready for the Blancpain Tests later this month as well as an apparent huge outstanding order for AMR's new V8 Vantage GT4.

Lets see where 2019 and R-Motorsport shall take us!
