Two very competitive Aston Martin will be on the starting grid at the fourth round of the VLN endurance championship Nürburgring. The car with start number 134 is entered by the Aston Martin Test Centre itself, the SP10 equivalent with number 188 by Mathol Racing.
Apart from Wolfgang Schuhbauer, Director of the Nürburgring Test Centre, regular driver Mathias Hüttenrauch and motor journalist Christian Gebhardt will share the cockpit in the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 at the 48th Adenauer ADAC Rundstrecken-Trophy Race. The car took a victory in the biggest class of the Specials at the Nürburgring 24h Race. At the third VLN race, Schuhbauer, Dr. Alexander Kolb and Vincent-Alexander Kolb scored a second place.
The Mathol Vantage, entered in the GT4 class, will be driven by Wolfgang Weber, Hendrik Still and Marc Basseng. Whilst Basseng competed in the first two VLN rounds still within the BMW factory team with an M6 GT3, he now relies on the British super sports cars of Aston Martin. Together with Weber and Erik Johansson from Sweden, he finished the third race as winner in the class of GT4 cars, the 35th in his VLN career.
