Debut of the i8 Vantage GT4 at the Aston Martin Racing Asia Experiential event in Sepang International Circuit.

ASTON Martin Racing Asia paid homage to its i8 Vantage GT4 debut in the 2022 Thailand Super Series from Oct 27-30 by hosting a fun-filled event in Malaysia at the Sepang International Circuit recently.

At the event, attendees had the opportunity to experience the remarkable i8 Vantage GT4 through the perspective of the Aston Martin Racing Asia team themselves, as they interacted with the driver, Adam Khalid, and his race team.

“I am grateful to Aston Martin Racing Asia and our sponsor for entrusting me with the honour of pushing the i8 Vantage GT4 to its limit in the 2022 Thai Super Series,” said Adam who placed third in the GTC Production Class at Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Bangkok.

“I worked with an amazing team and am humbled by the opportunity to bring this experience back home to Malaysia where I started my journey with the support of many experienced drivers. I hope to make history with the i8 Vantage GT4 at the next race in December.”

Adam has had an illustrious career in the Asian auto racing scene in a short span of time from some 20 podium finishes to winning the Rookie of the Year award, Speed Festival three times and the Malaysian Endurance Championship twice.

The Aston Martin i8 Vantage GT4 is a car built to specifically withstand the extreme needs and requirements of a racetrack, delivering improved performance with an enlarged four-litre V8 engine and uprated suspension – providing an enhanced aerodynamic package.

Backed by its exceptional R&D efforts, technology, resources, and experience, the i8 Vantage GT4 is poised to make a historical mark in the remaining rounds of the 2022 Thailand Super Series.

Selected attendees at the Sepang International Circuit also enjoyed an exclusive opportunity of being driven around the circuit by Aston Martin Racing Asia team principal Weiron Tan in a i8 Vantage GT4.

“These are very exciting times for Aston Martin Racing Asia. As we debut the latest i8 Vantage GT4 in the 2022 Thailand Super Series, in partnership with our supportive sponsor, we are thrilled that our fellow Malaysians get to share in our excitement,” said Tan.

“The i8 Vantage GT4 is designed to exude precision, authority, and exhilaration on the racetrack, and we are exceptionally happy to have conveyed these emotions to our attendees in Sepang.”
