The new AMR Performance Centre at the Nürburgring offers Aston Martin customers and supporters a number of racing-related services such as a driving academy, car preparation services and race car rentals, and will also remain Aston Martin’s base for Nürburgring durability testing of road and race cars.
The center is a development of the 10-year old Aston Martin Nürburgring Test Centre, and was officially opened by Aston Martin president and CEO Dr Andy Palmer at an exclusive media and VIP guest reception on the eve of the Nürburgring 24h race.
Racing hopefuls can come to the AMR Performance Centre to progress to their first racing license, book a casual track day experience, or experience a Nordschleife ‘taxi-ride’.
More seasoned racers can rent fully supported race cars or have their own car race-prepared, since the center will become a support hub for Aston Martin Racing’s European customers and race teams, who will be able to visit for advice and an enhanced parts service.
With the new Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars available later this year for the 2019 season, Aston Martin expects that the brand’s presence in all local racing championships will grow as a result of this new service.
The AMR Performance Centre also offers service and repair for the company’s most extreme machines, the One-77 road car, the Vulcan track car, and the forthcoming Valkyrie hypercar.
David King, Aston Martin vice president and chief special operations officer, commented, “The Aston Martin Nürburgring Test Centre has served us well for the last decade but now we have stepped up a gear, with a re-branded, full-service performance center. This will allow us to enhance our customer service, extend our road car testing and provide a higher level of support to our racing customers.”
