Later this year, Aston Martin is set to make a return to the Nürburgring 24 Hours, the first time since 2018. Drivers Nicki Thiim, Marco Sorensen and Maxime Martin will use a Aston Martin Vantage GT3 at the Nürburgring later next month between 28th-29th May for the race.
This will mark the first time the Vantage GT3 has been used at the 24 hour race and is four years on since the V12 Vantage GT3 was used at the Nürburgring.
“Whenever an Aston Martin has competed in the top class of the Nurburgring 24 Hours it has proven to be a competitive force, and this time around we have a world class GT3 contender in the Vantage, proven winners in TF Sport running the car and a squad of champions driving it. This is arguably the best chance yet for Vantage to secure a maiden podium in the world’s toughest GT race and thus establish it as an excellent choice for potential partners looking to succeed on the Nordschleife in future.”

Aston Martin will also need to do qualifying races for the event, which will take place between 7th-8th May, with two three hour races.
