The Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain enters its fourth season in 2013 and is owned by Aston Martin Racing (AMR). The team at Precision Paint have worked on numerous projects for AMR through David Appleby Engineering.
The GT4 Challenge car has done well in many challenges and many of the races are broadcast on television. So, at the end of each season Precision Paint strip back and refurbish the cars bodywork to bring it back to pristine condition, ready for racing and the sponsors worldwide exposure.
Here is a different paint spec for 2012, gallery shows the work in progress…
You can follow the GT4 Challenge car at the following events:
• 6 April – Silverstone • 11 May – Oulton Park • 1 June – Donington Park • 6 July – Brands Hatch Indy • 7 July -Centenary Festival (Brands Hatch)
• 26/27 July – Spa Francorchamps • 28 Sept – Snetterton
This Aston Martin Rally GT is based on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, but has been extensively re-engineered to make it more flexible and responsive for the demands of rallying.
The car has proved to be a favourite with both drivers and spectators and has been used to compete against some of the world’s best drivers at the Race of Champions and has been raced at rally days at Castle Combe and Chatsworth to name a few.
Over a full year of racing the Aston Martin Rally GT’s paintwork sustains considerable stone chip damage from competing on tar mac and gravel rally tracks
In 2011 the car was rebuilt and restored the car to its former glory by the team at Precision Paint who stripped the body work down and repaired the stone-chip marks and general damage that had been incurred over the year. Below you can see the refurbished body work and the work in progress.
The colbolt grey Aston Martin Rally GT below is a high end, prestige racing car and keeps it’s value if its body work is kept in top condition. Sponsors are also keen to promote themselves on a pristine condition car.
At the end of each racing year our team remove all the sign writing and bring the car back to an immaculate, polished finish, ready for the new season.
The Aston comes to our workshop after the racing season with all the sponsor decals and damage to the body work.
We then strip down the body work and re-spray so that the car is in perfect condition for the next racing season.
