A British V8 storms an American race track.
Aston Martin made their racing debut at Daytona International Speedway last week as a Vantage GT4 participated in the BMW Performance 200 in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge series. To celebrate their first appearance at the track, Aston Martin released exclusive in-car footage of the first lap.
The No.55 Multimatic Motorsports Aston Martin Vantage GT4 was piloted by Joe Foster and Scott Maxwell. The two drivers were able to achieve a respectable 16th overall place finish. Foster started the race and was able to grab the lead for some time and, with his team, was able to finish with an average speed of 81.578 mph and best lap time of 1:58.096.
Our favorite part is listening to the 4.7-liter V-8 let out a thunderous roar as it takes the lead.
