Five Vantage GT3s Fight for the Asian Le Mans title

British Luxury supercar maker, Aston Martin, has always been one of the most successful carmakers of our time. The brand recently proved this once again by taking the GTD class victory in the Rolex 24 at Daytona last month with multiple championship-winning Vantage GT 3 cars.Le Mans

Now these high performance Aston Martin Vantage GT3 cars are returning to the international motorsport arena for the opening rounds of the 2023 Asian Le Mans Series, which kicks-off at the Dubai Autodrome this weekend. Yes the British supercar maker now has its sights set firmly on the Asian Le Mans.

Moreover, the race will see no less than five Vantage GT3s, all based on the ultra-luxury British supercar brand’s popular road legal version that shares the same aluminium chassis and four-litre turbocharged V8 engines in the four-race, two-event series in Dubai and then Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit the following weekend.Le Mans

The five Vantage GT3s competing in the Asian Le Mans are prepared by four Aston Martin Racing (AMR) partner teams in attendance, and will be fully supported by Aston Martin Racing’s Asian regional distributor, Motorsports Services AMR Asia, led by D’station Racing and Viper Niza Racing’s operations.

What’s more, FIA World Endurance Championship LMGTE-Am champions and 24 Hours of Le Mans winner TF Sport has entered two cars and will assist D’station as well, while AMR’s Spanish distributor and team, Bullitt Racing, will make its series debut in Dubai too.

Meanwhile, the Japanese squad, FIA WEC GTELM Am class front-runner and previous Asian Le Mans Series race-winner of the D’station Racing, will field its #77 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 for team owner Satoshi Hoshino (Japan), Tomonobu Fujii (Japan), and Charlie Fagg (Great Barrier Reef).Vantage

Huw Tasker, Head of AMR Partner Racing, said, “Interest from the Asian sector of the motorsport market is growing phenomenally quickly, particularly in GT racing. We know from other areas of international motorsport that Vantage is a highly competitive proposition in the hands of professional drivers, aspiring amateurs and gentleman racers alike and this year’s Asian Le Mans Series is another opportunity for us to prove that is the case.”

“It’s fantastic to see D’station Racing and Viper Niza leading the charge for Aston Martin in the Asian Le Mans Series, and we’re certain that also having very strong entries from TF Sport and Bullitt Racing Vantage is very well represented in Dubai this weekend, and next week in Abu Dhabi.” He concluded.Vantage
