It’s no secret that we here at SportsCarGlobal are very fond of Aston Martin Racing and when one of our contributors recently arranged a visit to Prodrive who, among other things run the factory team for Aston Martin, we got far more than initially bargained for when we were given the chance to accompany the engineers and driver of the #99 V8 Vantage GTE, Richie Stanaway to the pre-Nürburgring shakedown at Turweston Aerodrome.

All of the cars performed well and without incident although only time will tell how the recently announced 3% BoP adjustment will affect them at race pace when they arrive next week at the famous German circuit.
