V8 Vantage GT4 - Bamford Rose built chassis

Bamford Rose in-house GT4 production, full road car into GT4 race car conversion for entry into the 2015 Aston Martin GT4 Cup.

The experience we have gained through our successes of powering; European GT4 champions Rhesus Racing, UK GT4 champions Nicholas Mee, 2012 Aston Martin Global Challenge Trophy winner Mathol Racing and many more who have yet to realise their dreams, means Bamford Rose is the team to trust to put you a nose ahead of the field. Our continued winning streak is the envy of every motorsport team operating out of the ‘Motorsport Valley’.

The all-new 2015 GT4 Cup will be split into two classes, GT4 FIA chassis which utilise a slick tyre, and all new for 2015 a treaded tyre subclass formed of road-going cars converted into racing cars. The road car converted into racing car will maintain its registered for road use status, and require a significantly lower investment than employing a pre-built GT4 chassis, making the converted road car the ideal entry into the exciting Aston Martin GT4 Cup.

The route to entry into this formula can be from dispatch of your road car to Bamford Rose for conversion into one of the regulated racing specifications, Bamford Rose manages selection of donor car and evolution on your behalf, or you can purchase a finished GT4 racing car ready for track use direct from Bamford Rose stock.

The regulations for the Aston Martin GT4 cup which are available from Aston Martin Owners Club, have been carefully crafted for the treaded tyre subclass of the Aston Martin GT4 Cup to keep racing both fun and competitive yet not necessarily needing a professional MotorSport team budget to compete. Meaning that for each system of; engine, exhaust, ECU, driveline, suspension, braking and aero, a range of evolution levels are possible. Bamford Rose can craft a car specification tailored to your budget which delivers the optimum performance possible resulting in the quickest car for your spend. We do this by application of technical intellect to tweak existing car systems and interact with some bespoke Motorsport products, whereas lesser ‘Motorsport Valley’ teams who fall short of this intellect level will unintelligently remove existing car systems such as ABS, traction control, Dynamic stability control and Engine Control Unit, and replace with less sophisticated Motorsport systems only because their knowledge of interrogating and tweaking existing car systems is lacking, causing you excessive spend and a slower car. You can entrust nobody finer than Bamford Rose to convert your road car into racing car for the most cost effective spend yet ultimate quality and performance.
