AMOC Racing Unveils Its 2014 Schedule
In 2012, the Aston Martin Owners Club formed AMOC Racing, an organization that holds races throughout England to provide Aston Martin owners an opportunity to compete on professional auto-racing circuits. Bolstered by the success of its first two series, AMOC Racing recently released the schedule for its 2014 race season, which again includes a stop at Brands Hatch Indy Circuit in Longfield, England—the site of Aston Martin’s 2013 Centenary Celebration and a favorite track among club racers. The 2014 series will run from April 5 to September 27 and will comprise six meets held at five different circuits, as well as a hill climb.
Each meet will host races in one or more different grids, including 1950s sports cars, historic production sports cars with engines smaller than 2.7 liters, and a Pre-War Team Challenge. Though AMOC Racing hosts the meets, each grid permits vehicles from other automakers to compete as long as they meet certain class criteria; so among the Aston Martin DB2s and GT4s, participants can expect to see classic models from Ferrari, Jaguar, Austin-Healey, and Porsche.
