Expanding its presence in international motorsport, Aston Martin boss, Andy Palmer, has announced an ambitious collection of brand new one-make series around the world.
Kicking off in Europe, a four Cup Worldwide racing series has been planned over the coming four years. The plan is to begin in Europe in 2020, with expansion into Asia planned for 2021.
R-Motorsport confirmed the grid will consist of 25 cars and the cars will be powered by an uprated twin-turbocharged four-litre V8 racing specification. Swiss-based R-Motorsport will build the car and supply a support and parts service.
"The launch of the Aston Martin Vantage Cup by R-Motorsport is certain to be a highlight next season", said R-Motorsport boss Florian Kamelger. “The vehicle being developed and produced by Team AF Racing will be a racing car that can hold its own at the highest level and will delight both our customers competing in the races as well as the fans at the racetracks."
This new series will join R-Motorsport and Aston Martin’s other motorsport collaborations.
CEO Andy Palmer added: "We are delighted that our brand will continue to be so well represented in international racing by R-Motorsport. The Aston Martin Vantage Cup by R-Motorsport offers interested customers the ideal opportunity with which to further their motor racing ambitions."
