SAN ANTONIO, Texas – CSJ Motorsports has been selected by Aston Martin Racing as the official North American distributor for sales and support of the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars.
Both the new Vantage GT3 and GT4 feature race-modified versions of the 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine used in Aston Martin’s next generation sports car.
The selection of CSJ Motorsports represents a fresh start in North America for Aston Martin Racing. Under the direction of co-principals Cy Jary and Susan Jary, CSJ Motorsports brings a unique perspective to the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship and Michelin Pilot Challenge series and the SRO Blancpain GT World Challenge America and Pirelli GT4 America paddocks.
The Jarys, who have a combined 42 years of experience owning construction and project management companies, are experienced business and sales professionals coming to motorsports free and clear of any existing paddock relationships. The singular focus of CSJ Motorsports will be only on current and future Aston Martin customers.
“We’re honored and looking forward to working closely with Aston Martin Racing to build the Vantage GT3 and GT4 programs in the United States,” Susan Jary said. “We’ve been in business as long as we have because we put our clients and customers first and pride ourselves on customer relations. We’ll continue that by doing what’s best for the teams running the Aston Martin Vantage.”
Based in San Antonio, Texas, CSJ Motorsports will be on hand with a parts truck and support at every IMSA and SRO event with an Aston Martin on the entry list. In addition to parts at and away from the track, CSJ Motorsports will offer diagnostic and technical support to each North American team.
“We both started as motorsports fans and have been looking for the right opportunity to get more involved,” Cy Jary said. “Working with Aston Martin Racing, we’ve made the investments needed to run a first-class, competitive operation. Our season has gotten off to a great start with a Vantage GT4 campaigned by Automatic Racing, and we’re looking forward to increasing the number of competitive Aston Martin Vantage machines racing across the country.”
Though a new car for 2019, the Aston Martin Vantage has already had success in both GT3 and GT4 trims around the world. The car has posted a combined 22 top-five finishes in several international race series including Blancpain GT World Challenge Europe, the British GT Championship, International GT Open Championship, Creventic 24H Series and the Super Taikyu Series. The tally includes 11 podium finishes and a win for the GT4 machine at Suzuka in the Super Taikyu Series.
