To celebrate its centenary, Aston Martin has announced the inaugural GT3 Cup, with entries open to both the Aston Martin DBRS9 and the Vantage GT3.
The GT3 Cup is an invitational class within the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain and each of the races will be held over a duration of either 100 laps or 100 minutes. To comply with the regulations of the GT3 Cup, all racers will need to run under a 105-dB noise level; to aid in that, a new exhaust system is included in the entrance fee of the races. Team and drivers will automatically be entered into the Aston Martin Racing Global Challenge, while all competitors will have access to the Aston Martin VIP Race Centre.
The three races on the 2013 race calendar are April 6 at Silverstone, June 1 at Donington Park, and July 7 at Centenary Festival (Brands Hatch). Though no pricing was announced, the package will include in addition to the exhaust, season entry for one car and up to three drivers, four VIP passes per car per event for the Aston Martin Race Centre, trophies for the winner at each round, end of season awards dinner, and photography for each event.
