About us

Aston Martin’s increasing commitment to historic motorsport has been cemented with the creation of Aston Martin Heritage Racing – an over-arching brand that unites the company’s assorted historic motorsport activities under one banner.

The pinnacle of AMHR’s activities is the new Festival Series. Open to owners of eligible Aston Martin GTs, Le Mans prototypes and ‘track specials’, Festival Series offers the unique thrill and camaraderie of racing at iconic European circuits during prestigious historic racing weekends.

In the first of several major new initiatives, Aston Martin has joined forces with Masters Historic Racing – one of the world’s leading historic race event organisers and promotors – to become its official automotive partner. The partnership places Aston Martin and its customers at the heart of the action, through a number of core activities.

“With high profile Festival races confirmed at this year’s Spa Six Hours historic meeting in September, and three race weekends planned in 2020 and 2021, we can look forward to grids of the finest Aston Martin competition cars of the more recent past racing on some of Europe’s best circuits.”

Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO.

The most visible of these are the supply of Aston Martin road cars as Official Safety Cars and Course Cars for Masters Historic Racing. This sees Aston Martin’s most driver-focused sports car – the Vantage – head each of the grids as Safety Car at selected MHR race weekends, leading the field around at speed before releasing the cars for the rolling start. Course Car duties will be performed by the four-door Rapide AMR, ensuring circuit officials are transported around the circuit with pace and panache.

In the same vein we are also working to secure a home for the recent DB4 GT and DB4 GT Zagato Continuation cars built by Aston Martin Works at Newport Pagnell; an objective that will further expand Aston Martin’s presence in the historic racing scene.

“It’s a tremendous endorsement of historic racing’s popularity that such a prestigious brand as Aston Martin has chosen to partner Masters Historic Racing (MHR). Few car companies have a better fit with historic racing, thanks to a thread of motorsport success tracing right back to the company’s origins more than a century ago.

Much like Aston Martin, MHR likes to innovate and evolve, and so I’m especially proud that Aston Martin is title partner of the Masters Endurance Legends Series, which has pioneered the concept of modern historic racing with dazzling grids of prototype and GT racing cars that were eligible to compete at Le Mans and other top-level endurance races between 1995 and 2012. With this period encompassing some of Aston Martin Racing’s greatest 21st century successes it will be an absolute pleasure to see some of these iconic machines once again do battle with their period adversaries.”

Ron Maydon, Founder and President of Masters Historic Racing.
