Aston Martin Ready for Grand-Am Debut
text size: A- A+
Aston Marting Racing has teamed up with Toronto-based Multimatic Motorsports to introduce a pair of Vantage GT4s in the Grand American Road Racing series, thus returning to the competition.
The first car will be driven by Scott Maxwell and Joe Foster, two racers with rich trophy cabinets, while the second will be manhandled by Hollywood movie star Patrick Dempsey and Chris Porritt, Aston Martin’s Chief Engineer.
“The first round of the Grand-Am Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge at Daytona will see Aston Martin realize a long-held desire to have the Vantage GT4 competing regularly in North America. Aston Martin Racing has built and sold nearly 100 Vantage GT4s since we raced the first one at the Nurturing 24 Hour race in 2006, and it’s great to be present at last in such an important market with such a strong and experienced partner as Multimatic,” David King, Aston Martin’s Head of Motorsport, said.
