PROsport Performance has entered into a deal with Aston Martin to run the manufacturer’s new GT3 and GT4 cars in ADAC GT Masters, ADAC GT4 Germany and the GT4 European Series.

The German outfit’s multi-car program will include two Aston Martin Vantage GT3s in GT Masters, including one car driven by a pair of Aston Martin Racing factory drivers.

It will also run a pair of Aston Martin Vantage GT4s in the new ADAC GT4 Germany championship in addition to two cars in the GT4 European Series.

Some of PROsport’s younger drivers will also be eligible to be part of the AMR Young Driver Academy.

A statement released by Aston Martin explained that the partnership with the Nürburgring-based team features the “highest level” of partner support from Aston Martin Racing.

The company’s new GT3 car made its competitive race debut in the eighth VLN round last month, finishing fourth overall despite handicaps imposed on unhomologated cars.

“Aston Martin has a unique tradition in motorsport,” said PROsport team owner Christoph Esser.

“To represent this brand makes us very proud. In close partnership with Aston Martin Racing, PROsport Performance will do its utmost to continue its successful history.

“The new Vantage has everything it needs to compete against the strongest competition in the GT3 and the GT4.”

AMR president David King added: “We are delighted to add PROsport Performance to our race partner team roster with the new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4 cars.

“The introduction of our new Vantage comes at a time when Aston Martin is expanding our motorsport and customer racing activities around the world.

“Adding teams the caliber of PROsport Performance signifies a clear statement of intent not only to demonstrate our capabilities as a leading producer of GT racing cars but as one that competes to win at the highest level.”
