Silverstone welcomes Aston Martin's test centre
25 June 2018
Silverstone, the home of British motor racing, is delighted to announce that Aston Martin has chosen the circuit to be the new base of their testing and development programme. Opening this October, Silverstone will be a hub for Aston Martin’s prototype vehicle testing with a particular focus on chassis dynamics and high speed-handling development.
This new Aston Martin test centre will be based in a dedicated and self-contained pit complex at Silverstone and will have exclusive use of a private circuit. In addition to these facilities, Aston Martin will also have access to a variety of circuit configurations and dynamic handling areas at Silverstone on which to test their range of high performance cars.
Stuart Pringle, Managing Director of Silverstone, commented “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Aston Martin to Silverstone. What better place for an iconic British luxury sports car brand to develop their cars than at the circuit that has been the home of British motor racing for 70 years?
“Silverstone has always had strong relationships with motor manufacturers and our dedicated automotive team are constantly developing initiatives to provide these brands and their customers with a platform to suit their individual needs. The entire team is looking forward to working with Aston Martin and supporting their testing and development programme.
