An evening with Aston Martin Racing

Aston Martin Works invites Aston Martin owners and enthusiasts to ‘An Evening with Aston Martin Racing’.

This event is to bring the sights and sounds of the race track to the home of Aston Martin in Newport Pagnell.

‘An Evening with Aston Martin Racing’ takes place from 6pm on Thursday 16 August and is being staged at Aston Martin Works’ new showroom in Tickford Street, Newport Pagnell. This event is part of the celebrations to mark the opening of Aston Martin Work’s new dealership which houses a ten-car showroom as well as service workshops that have been extensively upgraded with new equipment.

The endurance race driver Darren Turner, together with the Aston Martin Racing GTE pit crew, will be demonstrating the skill, precision and hours of practice that go into perfecting the art of the perfect pitstop in the Vantage GTE car. Darren, who competed at this year’s Nürburgring and Le Mans 24-Hour events, will be joining the event direct from the track at Donington, where he and the team are testing the Vantage GTE.

The Pitstop Challenge will be described live by a commentator and will be followed by a Q&A session with the AMR team. Paul Spires, general manager sales, Aston Martin Works said: “This is an amazing opportunity to meet the AMR team face-to-face and to have a unique vantage point on how the crew performs pitstops when under the most intense race pressure. Not only that, Darren and the team will be happy to answer questions about any aspect of Aston Martin’s successful involvement in endurance motorsport.”
