Racing boost for Aston Martin Owners' Club

| 9 Dec 2011

The Aston Martin Owners’ Club has handed over its racing programme to Duncan Wiltshire’s Motor Racing Legends in a bid to strengthen the club’s competition activities.The move will result in all the AMOC’s races taking place under a Aston Martin Club Racing Limited banner, as part of its preparations for celebrating its centenary next year.Wiltshire, who organises the historic support race at the Le Mans 24 Hours and the Donington Historic Festival, is confident he can boost the AMOC’s involvement on the track.“With the club’s centenary on the horizon, it’s the perfect time to reinvigorate the AMOC’s club racing,” said Wiltshire. “We want to make sure that 2012 sees the club’s competition programme start to regain the energy, vitality and packed grids that it richly deserves – and which have perhaps lapsed in recent years.”“Racing will, of course, be centred around Aston Martins, combined with the vital support of other invited clubs and grids,” he added.The full AMCR race calendar is currently being finalised, but AMCR is planning meetings at Oulton Park in mid May, Brands Hatch on 4 or 5 June, Donington on 28 July and Snetterton on 6 October.AMCR will also continue to run the long-established St John Horsfall meeting at Silverstone, along with the Intermarque series, one of the UK’s longest-running championships.See AMOC for more.
