Aston Martin Lagonda has announced a partnership with Yas Marina Circuit that will see the venue become the Middle Eastern home of the British marque. The partnership was formalized by Andy Palmer, president of Aston Martin Lagonda, and Al Tareq Al Ameri, CEO of the Yas Marina Circuit.
The newly established Middle East, North Africa and Turkey team, headed by regional president Dan Balmer, will be based at Abu Dhabi Motorsports Management HQ at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Speaking of the partnership, Al Ameri said, “We are extremely proud to be opening our doors to Aston Martin and very much look forward to a long and fruitful partnership. We welcome them to our motorsport family on a more official level now – with its regional office based at the Yas Marina Circuit and also with the integration of six new Vantage GT4s within our racing fleet.”
The new generation of Aston Martin Vantage GT4 race car – which is based on the Vantage road car and the GTE World Endurance Championship challenger – will be delivered to Yas Marina Circuit in 2019.
