Having already raced within the series with a Araujo Competicao McLaren 570s, Vaquinhas confirmed that "Aston Martin is like a good watch or a good wine, it presents cars for great connoisseurs. Furthermore, I have a particularly special connection with the brand, as my initial experience with a sportscar involved one of their cars. I hold a deep affection for the brand, and now, with the support of Aston Martin Lisboa, I take immense pride in representing it. Additionally, the Vantage AMR GT4 has already demonstrated its high level of competitiveness, providing me with a sense of performance assurance” were the grounds for his platform selection.

"This year, being my first season in motorsport, my primary objective is to learn and develop rather than solely focus on achieving specific outcomes. My goal is to solidify my understanding and accumulate valuable experience. Looking ahead to the next season, I aspire to adopt a more ambitious stance and progress towards contending for victories within my division. Despite being aware of the formidableopponents I'll face, I aim to take that stride forward", concluded Ruben Vaquinhas.

He still has some time to prepare himself for this AMR debut as the next round of the series is not until late October at Jerez.
