Team BRIT Aston Martin goes under the microscope at Aston Martin Racing

Team BRIT has moved yet another step forward on its motorsport journey by having a visual inspection of its GT4 car by Aston Martin Racing.

The team recently unveiled its Aston Martin V8 Vantage, in which it will begin its entry to GT4 racing this year.  The car is equipped with Team BRIT’s world –leading hand control technology which allows its disabled drivers to compete on equal terms with able-bodied drivers.

Being an Aston Martin Racing Customer Team, it has access to support from Aston Martin Racing.

On Wednesday 11th April, Team BRIT’s Race Engineer Al Locke, took the team’s Aston to the Aston Martin Racing’s headquarters in Banbury for a visual inspection by the team.

Matthew French, Aston Martin Racing’s Customer Support Manager, along with Technical Director Dan Sayers, provided guidance going forward, and offered their crew’s technical support and advice as the team moves into GT racing this year.

Team BRIT Chief Technician Al Locke said, “This was a really important day for us.  We are a serious, competitive team and want to be viewed as such, so having the feedback from Aston Martin experts is extremely valuable.  We also want to prove to them that they can have trust and confidence in us as a recognised Aston Martin team.

“We spend hours of research, design and maintenance on our cars to ensure they are safe, competitive and suitably adapted to allow our disabled drivers to race.  We are proud and confident in our cars and were keen for Aston Martin Racing to see them.

“Aston Martin Racing are the reigning Le Mans GTE Champions so there is no one better to give their advice and support as we head towards our goal.  We look forward to working closely with them on our journey.”
