• Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing agrees long-term deal with lead­ing Ger­man squad
  • PROsport Per­for­mance to run Van­tage GT3s and GT4s in ADAC Mas­ters
  • Aston Mar­tin works dri­vers to fea­ture in PROsport’s GT3 line-up

Fri­day 9 Novem­ber, Gay­don: Aston Mar­tin has announced that it will enter in to an impor­tant new part­ner­ship with the suc­cess­ful Ger­man rac­ing team PROsport Per­for­mance based near the Nürburgring, close to the home of the British brand’s AMR Per­for­mance Cen­tre in Ger­many.

The agree­ment, which fea­tures the high­est lev­el of part­ner sup­port from Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing, includes a two-car attack on Germany’s lead­ing GT cham­pi­onship – the ADAC GT Mas­ters – in 2019 with the new Aston Mar­tin Van­tage GT3. More­over, one of those two Van­tage GT3s will be dri­ven by a pair Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing works dri­vers.

In addi­tion to this, PROsport Per­for­mance, the new­ly-crowned Euro­pean 24h GT Series Dri­vers and Teams cham­pi­on, will enter two Aston Mar­tin Van­tage GT4s in the new ADAC GT4 Ger­many series. It will also enter two in the GT4 Euro­pean Series – where the team has col­lect­ed three cham­pi­onship titles (Dri­vers PRO/AM and Team in 2016 and Dri­vers AM in 2013). Some of PROsport’s younger dri­vers will also be eli­gi­ble to be part of the AMR Young Dri­ver Acad­e­my.

This lat­est part­ner­ship announce­ment from Aston Mar­tin rep­re­sents a strong advo­ca­tion for the new Aston Mar­tin Van­tage, of which the GT3 vari­ant under­lined its poten­tial on its com­pet­i­tive race debut in the eighth round of the VLN on the Nürburgring Nord­schliefe last month, run­ning trou­ble-free and fin­ish­ing fourth over­all.

PROsport is a high­ly-dec­o­rat­ed motor­sport organ­i­sa­tion that spe­cialis­es in GT rac­ing with a record of con­sis­tent suc­cess that charts all the way back to its for­ma­tion by team own­er and for­mer rac­er Christoph Ess­er in 2006. Among its acco­lades, are five class vic­to­ries in the Nürburgring 24 Hours and more than 50 class wins in the cir­cuit-based VLN Cham­pi­onship.

Ess­er said: “Aston Mar­tin has a unique tra­di­tion in motor­sport. To rep­re­sent this brand makes us very proud. In close part­ner­ship with Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing, PROsport Per­for­mance will do its utmost to con­tin­ue its suc­cess­ful his­to­ry. The new Van­tage has every­thing it needs to com­pete against the strongest com­pe­ti­tion in the GT3 and the GT4.”

Pres­i­dent of Aston Mar­tin Rac­ing, David King added: “We are delight­ed to add PROsport Per­for­mance to our race part­ner team ros­ter with the new Aston Mar­tin Van­tage GT3 and GT4 cars. The intro­duc­tion of our new Van­tage comes at a time when Aston Mar­tin is expand­ing our motor­sport and cus­tomer rac­ing activ­i­ties around the world. Adding teams the cal­i­bre of PROsport Per­for­mance sig­ni­fies a clear state­ment of intent not only to demon­strate our capa­bil­i­ties as a lead­ing pro­duc­er of GT rac­ing cars but as one that com­petes to win at the high­est lev­el.”
