Aston Martin honours GT4 motorsport stars

Aston Martin GT4 competitors from across Europe have been honoured at an awards ceremony held at the marque’s Gaydon headquarters.

The event saw 11 trophies handed out to customer drivers and teams who have been most successful during the 2011 racing season and Sell my Aston Martin has all the news.

A highlight of the ceremony was the recognition of the top three driver pairings of the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain.

The series pits amateur racers head-to-head in identical Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4s, derived from the V8 Vantage road car and modified in several key areas.

Organised with the Aston Martin Owners Club, this year marked the second season for the challenge and began at Silverstone in April.

Races were also held at Snetterton, Donington Park, Oulton Park and Brands Hatch, as well as Spa-Francorchamps and Dijon.

Dan de Zille and Karsten Le Blanc were the victors.

“We’ve enjoyed the Challenge so much this year,” Le Blanc told Sell my Aston Martin.

“It’s not just young boys racing, but slightly more mature gentlemen drivers, which suits me perfectly! I must say thank you
to everybody at Aston Martin Racing for building such a fantastic car as the V8 Vantage GT4.”

Tom Black and Alan Bonner came second, with Chris Kemp and Stuart Hall in third.

The Aston Martin Racing Global Award, which saw stiff competition from 182 drivers across 25 championships, went to two drivers – Francisco Carvalho and Miguel Ferreira.

Veloso Motorsport picked up the Aston Martin Racing Global Award in the Team category.

David King, head of motorsport at Aston Martin, told Sell my Aston Martin: “It was a pleasure to honour all of our best GT4 teams and drivers from throughout Europe at the home of Aston Martin.

“We want to congratulate all of our award winners; they should be very proud of what they’ve achieved this year.”
