In 2012 AMOC established a new company Aston Club Racing (ACR) Ltd.
to organise the club's racing activities and remove from the club the financial risk of running race meetings. The largest shareholder in the new entity is the AMOC with the balance being owned by racing enthusiasts and Prodrive.
The racing organised by ACR is for Aston Martins of all ages, from Pre War to the latest Aston Martin GT4. The races include all the other major racing marques such as Ferrari. Porsche, Jaguar, Bentley, Austin Healey, Mustang, Cobra etc. Most races require cars to have FIA /HTP papers or at least be built to a specification compatible with HTP papers.
A notable exception is the Intermarque championship which is one of the countries oldest race championships which accommodates entries from modified Aston Martins and similar marques.
If club racing to thrive it is key to attract new young racers and if Aston Martins are to continue to be seen racing at club level there must be a race series for relatively affordable Aston Martins. To address these two issues ACR has recently introduced two new race series for the now affordable Aston Martin V8 Vantage - the Aston Martin GT4 Cup the V8 Vantage Cup.
While the GT4 cup is for racing cars built by the factory, the V8 Vantage Cup is for modified road legal cars on treaded tyres. This allows the owner to drive to the circuit, race, and then drive home again in the true tradition of club racing.
