Madrid, 18 December 2012: Two leading Aston Martin Racing customer teams, Generation AMR of Banbury, UK and top Danish squad Perfection Racing have now confirmed their GT4 entries in the widely discussed, new-for-2013 Maxi Endurance 48 Hours race to be held at Circuit of Navarra in northern Spain, March 14-17, 2013.
Maxi Endurance 48 ("the longest race in the world") promises to be the ultimate endurance race challenge for man and machine. Cars will compete in 5 categories - ranging from current international GT3, Ferrari Challenge and Porsche Cup racers to swift CN prototypes, rapid GT4's plus light touring cars (Seat Leon, etc) and perse production racers. The Aston Martin Vantage GT4's from both teams will run in the very competitive MAXI Sport category. With its perse grid, substantial prize fund (€ 200,000+), all rescues and repairs allowed (even including an engine change), it’s not hard to see why competitors are flocking to race 4 times 'round the clock. Almost 40 teams have already posted provisional entries.
Each team can have between five and eight drivers (maximum 10 hours per driver in stints of up to 2 hours) to share the fun / task / work of racing for 2 days and 2 nights. Both Generation AMR and recent Silverstone 24 Hour class winners Perfection Racing advise that they still have several seats available for potential drivers - and would be happy to hear from them (see the series website or contact Generation AMR: email@example.com or Perfection Racing: KBS@perfection-racing.dk).
Maxi Endurance 48 Hour visionary and founder (and hugely experienced international GT racer and team owner himself) Jesus Diez Villaroel commented today:
“We are pleased and proud to have the legendary endurance marque of Aston Martin represented in our challenge. These teams will find themselves in good company with the grid already beginning to fill in all classes. Our objective is to 'raise the bar' on contemporary endurance racing - at the same time keeping it affordable for the enthusiast driver - and we look forward to welcoming more teams and drivers to join this 'modern classic' event at the outstanding facility at Navarra.”
