New Aston Martin Vantage LMGT3 challenger

The striking new Aston Martin Vantage LMGT3 cars which will take part in this year’s FIA WEC have today been revealed.

Heart of Racing (No. 27) and D’Station Racing (No. 777) will both use the all-new Aston Martin Vantage LMGT3 car as they prepare to take on 16 other teams in the highly-competitive WEC category this year. A total of nine manufacturers will compete in the LMGT3 category in this year’s WEC.

The Vantage LMGT3 contender follows the ultra- successful Vantage GTE, which scored a remarkable 52 class wins and 11 world titles between 2012 and 2023.

Timed to coincide with the international debut of the new Vantage road car, the spectacular new Vantage GT3 mirrors the latest showroom model’s intensified performance, sharpened dynamics and eye-catching style, translating those qualities into a formidable new GT racer and starting the next chapter in Aston Martin’s illustrious motorsport history.

Ian James (USA), Daniel Mancinelli (Italy) and Alex Riberas (Spain) will drive the No. 27 Heart of Racing Team entry while piloting the sister No. 777 D’Station Racing Aston Martin Vantage will be Clement Mateu (France), Erwan Bastard (France) and Marco Sorensen (Denmark).
