The Aston Martin Raceday takes place on the Brands Hatch Indy circuit this Saturday (13 August) with one of Britain's most iconic manufacturers well represented this weekend accompanied by other great marquees.
The Aston Martin GT Challenge provides the opportunity for modern GT4 cars to go wheel-to-wheel with each other, with the added drama of pit stops thrown in.
They will be on track at the same time as the AMOC Intermarque Championship pitching various Aston Martins against similar high performance models from Jaguar, Ferrari and Porsche, with cars ranging from the 50s to the 90s.
The Equipe GTS is a great racing series for pre-1966 cars and the grid for Brands is made up of MGBs, TVRs, Lotuses, Triumphs and more. These beautiful cars were a real crowd pleaser at Snetterton and should be equally spectacular at Brands Hatch as they slide their way down Paddock Hill bend.
At Brands Hatch this weekend, Aston Club Racing are running the Innes Ireland Cup for all types of GT and touring cars built prior to 1966. The race is open to all Aston Martin DB4 GT and Project Cars, as well as earlier '50s Aston GTs, plus E-Types, Cobras, Austin-Healey 3000s, Ford Falcons and Lotus Cortinas from the period.
Previously at Snetterton the Innes Ireland Cup race was won by Cooke/Dowd in their Ford Shelby GT350 with Smare/Ellis in their Ford Falcon and third spot being taken by Miller/Goble in their Aston Martin DB4.
The Kumho BMW championship adds further variety to the day, with these rear wheel drive production models certain to entertain spectators with plenty of bumper to bumper action guaranteed.
The recently introduced Allcomers sprint race should provide some fun racing to conclude the day's programme. This is an open invitation for all cars that have raced at the event earlier in the day. A great reward for those who have managed to keep their cars in one piece avoiding too much damage!
