The latest AMR kid on the block down in South Africa

Tuesday, December 06, 2022


A turbo charged version of the Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT3 has just hit the shores of South Africa in time for the final round of the domestic South Africa GT Series this weekend.

Nothing new in a new iteration AMR competing within that country of course as that accolade went to the Garage 59 team when they competed within the Kyalami 9hrs Intercontinental GT event at Kyalami few years ago, but this news will see the platform move into their domestic GT theatre for the first time.

Listed as racing under the Into Africa racing banner, this Stradale Motorsport support car will be driven by SAGT owner and prominent promotor of South African motorsport racing driver Xolile Letlaka for the final round of the series at the Killarney Motorsport Park this weekend amongst a fourteen car grid.

No stranger to modern GT platforms having raced at the last Kyalami 9Hrs within a Lamborghini Huracan GT3 Evo, his latest acquisition has only just arrived within the country so there has been no time for any prior testing.

The provenance of this Aston Martin is yet to be determined, whether it is a new platform or not only time will tell but Letlaka will be in good hands at Stradale with the team having raced a V12 AMR Vantage GT3 within the series a few years ago.
