The Andrew Howard-led team purchased the 100th Vantage GT4, which has been developed by Aston Martin Racing. The driver lineup will be announced this weekend at the Autosport International show in Birmingham.

Beechdean-AMR won the 2013 British GT drivers’ title, which will see Andrew Howard return to the wheel of the V12-powered car for this year. Aston Martin Racing junior driver Jonny Adam, who paired with Howard for much of the season, meanwhile, has been re-signed.

It’s expected the team will also take part in two rounds of the Blancpain Endurance Series this year, namely Silverstone and the Spa 24 Hours. A larger program could materialize if the budget is found.
