4 March 2016, Ban­bury:

New­ly-launched R-Motor­sport has joined an exclu­sive and esteemed club, after being select­ed as an offi­cial Aston Mar­tin tech­ni­cal part­ner team, with its com­pa­ny AF Rac­ing AG pro­vid­ing a new Euro­pean parts and race car dis­tri­b­u­tion ser­vice to Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing cus­tomer and part­ner teams.

Led by Andreas Baen­ziger and Flo­ri­an Kamel­ger, the team will sup­port cars in this year’s VLN Cham­pi­onship, with a V8 Van­tage GT4 under the R-Motor­sport ban­ner. The new­ly cre­at­ed team will oper­ate as the motor­sport arm of Aston Mar­tin St. Gallen; one of Aston Martin’s lead­ing Swiss deal­er­ships.

In what is a sig­nif­i­cant coup for the new out­fit, the recog­ni­tion is tes­ta­ment to R-Motor­sport and Aston Mar­tin St. Gallen’s ambi­tion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism. The squad com­menced its rela­tion­ship with Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing with prepa­ra­tions for the com­ing sea­son at an offi­cial and exclu­sive two-day test at the Cir­cuit de la Comu­ni­tat Valen­ciana Ricar­do Tor­mo in Spain.

There, R-Motor­sport received advanced tech­ni­cal sup­port and feed­back from Aston Mar­tin Racing’s high­ly-skilled engi­neers, who were also present test­ing the lat­est 2016 V8 Van­tage GTE for the upcom­ing FIA World Endurance Cham­pi­onship. The clients of R-Motor­sport were able to expe­ri­ence the lat­est 2016 Aston Mar­tin Van­tage GT4 and Van­tage GT3 race cars.

On top of their exploits on track, AF Rac­ing AG will offer a new ser­vice to Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing cus­tomer teams through­out Europe. The new parts and race car dis­tri­b­u­tion ser­vice will oper­ate from Aston Mar­tin St. Gallen and is ready to wel­come cus­tomers from through­out the con­ti­nent.

John Gaw, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing, said: “We are delight­ed to intro­duce
R-Motor­sport into the Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing fam­i­ly and we look for­ward to sup­port­ing the team in every aspect of its motor­sport pro­gramme for the future, while pro­vid­ing tech­ni­cal sup­port as and when required”.

Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing is ded­i­cat­ed to sup­port­ing its glob­al net­work of cus­tomer teams and our col­lab­o­ra­tion with AF Rac­ing AG and R-Motor­sport cre­ates an improved sup­ply chain to our exist­ing cus­tomers too. We’re proud to be able to build upon the excep­tion­al ser­vice that we already offer to our cus­tomers”.

Flo­ri­an Kamel­ger, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of AF Rac­ing AG, stat­ed: “We are proud to enter into this tech­ni­cal part­ner­ship with Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing. It gives us the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get even clos­er to motor­sport and to build up cus­tomer rac­ing on a pro­fes­sion­al lev­el. ‘R-Motor­sport’ will become a brand that will be recog­nised for rac­ing with Aston Mar­tin”.

David King, Head of Glob­al Motor­sports Aston Mar­tin, said: “Motor­sport is the soul of every Aston Mar­tin, and our cars are suc­cess­ful­ly com­pet­ing on race tracks and in series around the world. We wel­come R-Motor­sport to become a part of the fam­i­ly of cus­tomer teams who race with race cars of our brand”.
