Aston Martin reveals GT4 Challenge.

Aston Martin has announced the launch of the new Vantage GT4 Challenge, which will run as part of the Britcar series in 2009.

The new series, announced by Prodrive chairman David Richards and Britcar chief James Tucker at the Autosport International show in Birmingham, will be open to all Aston Martin Vantage GT4s, including the older Vantage N24.

Eligible drivers will compete in the regular Britcar GT Championship and score points towards both that series and the Vantage GT4 Challenge. The winner will have the opportunity to test drive the Aston Martin Vantage GT2 car.

“The Britcar championship is an excellent series for the Aston Martin Vantage GT4,” Richards said. “With a combination of both endurance and speed, it will play to the strengths of our car, which has already proven itself by winning its class at the Nurburgring and Britcar 24 hour races. I'm sure the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 Challenge will also draw interest from drivers competing in other GT4 series, looking for endurance racing experience.”

The series will start at Silverstone in late March and will also include races at Donington Park and Brands Hatch amongst the British events, and a trip to the famous Spa circuit in Belgium.
