V12 Vantage's back out racing In Europe

Monday, May 27, 2019

Whilst the new iteration of the Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 is quickly making its mark in the world racing arena, the car that it replaced - the wonderfully sounding V12 Vantage GT3 was out again in two European series this weekend with one dominating its class.

The German based DMV GTC Series were again on their annual pilgrimage to the Red Bull Ring in Austria this weekend with a singe AMR V12 Vantage GT3 entry again from Timo Scheiber and his Schaler Motorsport.

Featuring two - thirty minute races as well as a 60 minute race over the two days, Scheibner and his #13 car dominated the Class 2 proceedings by taking a trio of Class wins by finishing P7, P5 and P7 respectively in each of the three races.

Meanwhile, over at the Salzburgring in Austria owner of both of these two V12 Vantages (Alexander Lienau) was also out again in his ex. Miedecke Motorsport car in the Histo Cup Series. Having last ran in the car in the Aston Martin Masters Endurance Legends at Monza earlier this month where he was able to get some assistance from the Beechdean AMR team parked next door in the paddock (they were racing in the Michelin Le Mans Cup race), this weekend proved to be another learning curve for the retired Austrian as at first fuel pressure issues and then a trip into the gravel on the last lap of race 1 summed up his Saturday.

Then for Sundays events things went a lot better with a P6 Qualifying position amongst the 15 car field to ultimately finish P5 but not too far off the final step of the podium.

A great weekend of racing and we bet that these cars must have sounded marvellous with their V12 screams reverberating off the local mountain sides.
