Team boss David Bartrum confirmed the change of marque and expanded GT campaign ahead of start of the Kent-based squad's extensive winter testing programme in readiness for the 2014 season.

“It was time for us to take on a new challenge and the Aston Martin is a very strong GT3 car at the moment,” said Bartrum. “The people at Aston Martin were very keen for us to build a new two-car team. The car showed excellent form in 2013 and we’ve watched it with great interest.

“This is a new challenge for us,” continued Bartrum. “We want to grow our GT operation and it’s great to be doing it with a British manufacturer. We also needed a car that could be adapted to the two series we want to contest, and the Aston Martin firmly ticks that box.”

Bartrum has been able to draw on feedback from works Aston Martin GT racer Jonny Adam, a former Motorbase driver during his time in the BTCC. Adam was central to the marque’s success in the 2013 British GT Championship.

The Motorbase team was the only squad in the 2013 British GT Championship to score points in all but one of this season's ten races and Bartrum is determined to maintain that form. “Of course we want to remain very competitive in British GT and we need to hit the ground running when the season starts at Oulton Park at Easter. By making an early decision we have given ourselves time to understand the Aston Martin both on the track and in the workshop.”

The driver line up for the Motorbase Performance GT team will be announced over the coming weeks.
