Aston Martin Racing will hold a private test for prospective customers to driver the Aston Martin Vantage GT3 at the Portuguese Portimao circuit on February 17-18.

The new GT3-spec car was introduced at the start of the 2012 season and went on to collect race wins and podiums in series including Japanese Super GT and Malaysian Super Series in Asia and International GT Open, ADAC GT Masters and British GT in Europe.
