The final race in the 2011 calendar of the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge will journey to Dijon, France for what promises to be some very heated action in the one-make series this weekend. So far this year, fans have been able to enjoy the most races ever in the series, with venues including Silverstone, Snetterton, Donington, Spa Francorchamps, Oulton Park and Brands Hatch.
Practice and qualifying at Dijon begin at 09:10 (CET) and are due to conclude at 9:40 (CET) with the 80 minute race beginning at 13:00 (CET) on Sunday, September 11th.

We’ll remind you that the Vantage was launched by Aston back in 2005 and since then has become their best-ever selling car. The beginning of the one-make series can be traced back to 2006 Nurburgring 24 Hours, where the car took 24th overall, resulting in many Aston customers demanding race cars.

The initial batch of 24 cars sold out rapidly and to date over 100 cars have been built. In 2009 the car was upgraded with the company’s new 4.7-le V8 engine, and the car was renamed Vantage GT4.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
