Older Aston Martins hold their own against younger race cars around the world this weekend

Monday, June 03, 2024


Two older generations of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 were also busy battling things out at both Imola in Italy and at The Bend down under in Australia in the Italian GT Series and GT world Challenge Australia Series respectively.

Closer to home, the once was Lazarus Corse AMR team (now apparently renamed the L&A Infinity Racing team) were out with their slightly newer, 17A variant of the car at the second round of their domestic Series at Imola with their driver pairing of Mattia Di Giusto and William Alatalo.

Again competing within the Pro-Am class, the #5 pairing come home with a steady P10 overall finishes at the end of each of their 50-minute sprint races, earning themselves class points for their P6 and P5 Pro-Am finishes respectively – a massive improvement from their opening round results from Misano in early May.

Then down under, there was the iconically sounding V12 Vantage GT3 from the KMB Motorsport stable racing within the Trophy class of the GT World Challenge Australia Series from The Bend.

This time racing with Valentino Astuti and Darren Currie, the #38 car earned herself a P17 overall finish at the end of the opening hour-long race on Saturday before improving to a P9 overall finish in Race 2.

This series will now take something of a mid-season sabbatical before the next round at Queensland Raceway at the beginning of August.
