Those familiar with the world of GT Racing will be well versed in Customer Racing teams working in conjunction with major car manufacturers. In this instance, Bullitt Racing has taken the relationship to another level and is pleased to confirm its status as a Partner Team to Aston Martin Racing in what is a comprehensive and highly ambitious five-year plan.
The Marbella-based outfit will partner with Aston Martin Racing in the Iberian Peninsula, managing track days and embarking on an extensive and exciting new race programme. In addition, Bullitt Racing is now a registered Official Agent for the British marque and will be marketing and selling race vehicles on their behalf in the region.
The race team will compete in the forthcoming Asian Le Mans Series taking place in February in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and is also aiming to take part in the Gulf 12 Hours in January at Yas Marina.
Heading into the summer programme, Bullitt Racing will run two Aston Martin Vantage GT3s in the seven-round Michelin Le Mans Cup, the feeder series to European Le Mans Series.
In addition, and subject to driver opportunities, the team will also compete in selected rounds of the Creventic 24 Hour series including Portimao and Barcelona, as well as comprehensive testing throughout the season.
Further details, including driver signings, will be confirmed shortly.

“We’re all excited about the season ahead, the first year of what we consider to be a five-year plan to grow the team. We’re not just back with a new project, but we’re back with a detailed, fully-costed and exciting race programme to take us through the coming seasons of International GT Racing with an iconic, winning brand.
“Our team slogan is ‘more than just a race team’ and this project underlines this racing philosophy perfectly. We always look at the best in the business, that’s how we measure ourselves and we’ll strive to match them, and in time, become the strongest in our chosen category.”
