Aston Martin Racing, the official motorsport arm of the British automaker, has launched a new driver training program that turns complete novices into racing drivers with a recognized license to compete in championships both in the U.K. and overseas.
The comprehensive course can be completed in a matter of weeks and sees participants receive a National B racing license. It covers everything including track sessions, the supply of a Vantage GT4 race car, racing suits and helmets, and the all-important insurance coverage.
Unfortunately, the program is currently being offered in the U.K. only. If you’re interested, contact Aston Martin Racing today. Who knows, perhaps you’ll be strapped into a Vantage GTE and competing as an Aston Martin works driver at Le Mans next year.
