Comtoyou Racing will be competing in Aston Martins from the 2024 season
The Belgian team and the British manufacturer have signed a long-term agreement
In addition to GT3, Comtoyou Racing will extend its involvement to GT4
They have been a familiar sight in GT racing with Audi cars, but now the Comtoyou Racing Team is preparing to take on a new challenge from the 2024 season.
“First of all, I would like to thank Audi Sport Customer Racing for supporting us in our GT3 debut,” explains Jean-Michel Baert, Team Principal of the Belgian outfit. “Even if it is always possible to do better, we had a successful debut in the Fanatec GT World Challenge Europe, where the level of competition is unquestionable. However, we no longer saw the possibility of future growth in GT with Audi and we are pleased to announce a new partnership.”
In 2024, the Frameries-based outfit will join forces with Aston Martin to become AMR Comtoyou Racing. “We are extremely proud to have signed a four-year partnership with Aston Martin Racing,” continues Jean-Michel. “We were won over by their enthusiasm, their desire to win and their vision of the future. Thanks to them, we also have the opportunity to enter GT4, in addition to GT3. It is too early to reveal all the details of our programme, in terms of drivers and championships, but we are totally motivated.”
Aston Martin Racing is also more than pleased with this new partnership. “Aston Martin Racing is delighted to be associated with Comtoyou Racing,” said Huw Tasker, Head of Partner Racing AMR. “Our brand has a great history in motorsport and GT. We were looking for a first-class partner who shares our vision of performance and our professionalism.”
