PETALUMA, Calif. – Only weeks after announcing an exclusive, long-term partnership with Aston Martin Racing, The Racer’s Group (TRG) has finalized its first technical alliance with Spencer Cox and Speed Sport Tuning of Danbury, Connecticut.
This partnership will allow Speed Sport Tuning to become the first East Coast hub for support of the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 track day car as well as the upcoming one-make series race program.
The one-make series will be similar to the Vantage GT4 Challenge in the U.K., allowing drivers a truly all-inclusive “Arrive and Drive” racing series across North America. The Vantage GT4 is one of the best, purpose built track day cars available and is touted for its ease of operation, low maintenance and service intervals, low cost of repairs and a final price of under $200,000.
Speed Sport Tuning will provide its world-class facilities and logistical capabilities to help act as a support and service center for TRG-AMR North America and many of the Vantage GT4’s that will be running on the East Coast, as well as serving as a hub for new car deliveries, maintenance, and support of the new Vantage GT4 Challenge Series.
“We are pleased to announce our first East Coast partnership between TRG-AMR North America and Speed Sport Tuning in Danbury, Connecticut,” said TRG co-owner Kevin Buckler. “Spencer Cox and I have been friends for nearly 20 years and have watched each other’s businesses grow on opposite coasts. Spencer is one of the best at organizing and operating high-end, client-based driver programs and is going to be a perfect partner for us with our new Aston Martin racing program. We anticipate Spencer and several of his clients to be purchasing a few of our brand-new Aston Martin GT4 Vantages and getting them out on the local tracks and track day events and also in anticipation for the new Aston Martin one-make series that will be coming in 2014. Speed Sport will also be available to support several of the local dealers in any of their racing efforts. We welcome Spencer and Speed Sport to the Aston Martin Racing family here in North America.”
