Aston Martin bossing the hill again at this years Festival of Speed

Friday, July 05, 2019

Despite some fine attempts from other race and road car manufacturers to steal the limelight at this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed, Aston Martin Racing and parent company Aston Martin Lagonda have again pulled out another fine repertoire of new (and indeed old) race and road cars to woo the crowd and viewers at this year's event.

With 2019 also marking the 70th anniversary of the company having first raced at the Goodwood circuit close to the south coast of England, no expense or viewpoint has been spared as the company celebrates that fact with its customers and fans with both demonstration runs and static displays of cars past and present to drool over.

From the Aston Martin Racing side of the equation, we have seen examples of the now historically classified DBR9 GT2, the now outgoing V12 Vantage GT3 from R-Motorsport (in its Bathurst 12Hr livery) through to an example of the new 2019 specification and turbo charged V8 Vantage GT3 from Optimum Motorsport.

These beauties have been bolstered by another appearance of the factory teams new V8 Vantage GTE, a car that only raced for the first time just over a year ago but since then has gone on to secure its first class pole and then class wins in etc World Endurance Championship over the course of the 2018-19 Super-season.

Familiar faces likes AMR factory drivers Darren Turner and Jonny Adam as well as many guesting drivers have com to support the team over the four day event on the Goodwood Estate.

As a ticket only event, unless you are lucky enough to have applied for and been accepted for tickets the best we can hope for is to watch the incredible live stream available HERE

With the WEC, there is no time to lose as the next season to the Championship resumes in just three weeks at the Prologue - this time from the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, Spain over the 23rd and 24th July ahead of the season start at Silverstone on the 1st September.
