The new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 made a remarkable debut in the AUTOBACS SUPER GT Series, securing a victory in the GT300 Class just four months after its global unveiling at Silverstone. Piloted by the D’station Racing team, along with drivers Tomonobu Fujii and Charlie Fagg, the #777 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 claimed both pole position and victory at Suzuka, finishing 38 seconds ahead of its closest competitor. This triumph not only marked Aston Martin’s first win in the series but also showcased the potential of the new Vantage GT3 on the international stage.

Additionally, Aston Martin’s partner team, Heart of Racing, achieved its best result of the season in the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, securing a third-place finish in the GTD Pro class at Detroit. Drivers Ross Gunn and Alex Riberas showcased the new Vantage GT3’s capabilities, racing from sixth on the grid to claim the car’s first podium finish in the 100-minute sprint format event.

Adam Carter, Aston Martin’s Head of Endurance Motorsport, expressed his satisfaction with the Vantage GT3’s success, highlighting the significance of winning in the prestigious SUPER GT series and acknowledging the dedication of D’station Racing since their partnership began in 2019. He also praised Heart of Racing’s podium finish in Detroit, emphasizing the teams’ strong performance leading up to the 24 Hours of Le Mans preparations.

D’station Racing has been a partner team of Aston Martin Racing since 2019, achieving notable successes with the previous generation Vantage GT3. In 2021, they secured the Super Taikyu crown, becoming the first team to win a Japanese domestic title with an Aston Martin. The team has also demonstrated competitive performance in the FIA World Endurance Championship and other GT series.

With 25 examples of the new Vantage GT3 competing in various championships worldwide and more expected to join throughout the season, Aston Martin’s latest GT racer builds on the legacy of its predecessors, featuring advanced aerodynamics, revised suspension, and state-of-the-art electronics. Powered by a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine and based on Aston Martin’s bonded aluminum chassis, the Vantage GT3 promises world-beating potential on the track.
