The inaugural round of the new Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of North America takes place this weekend at Watkins Glen International, New York.
The Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of North America is a seven-event, multi-round series that competes on some of the finest road courses in North America with entrants set to race the Vantage GT4 race car.
The Aston Martin GT4 race car is based on the critically-acclaimed V8 Vantage Coupe, with a bespoke 4.7 litre V8 engine producing 420bhp and 346lb.ft of torque. The advanced body structure of the V8 Vantage is the key to its handling and responsiveness making it a class-leading chassis for race car transition.
The competition moves to Virginia International Raceway next month for its second race before making a first appearance in Canada at the Circuit Mont-Tremblant in Quebec in July.
