Matthew Vaxiviere confirmed in a R Motorsport Aston Martin.

Alongside Jake Dennis, Alex Brundle, Maxime Martin, Nicki Thiim and one more TBA.

What a pair of cars for the Endurance cup.....

Garage 59 = McLaren GT
M-Sport = Bentley

Grasser = Lamborghini supported team
ABT = Bentley supported team
WRT = Audi supported team
AF Corse = Ferrari supported team
Black Falcon = Mercedes supported team
Akka ASP = Mercedes supported team
RJN = Nissan supported team

But sometimes it is not really clear. M-Sport for example build the Bentleys and run them as well. WRT not builds the R8, but gets engineers, money and drivers from Audi. But WRT also runs R8 for pay-drivers (Leonard / Ide). Ofcourse the WRT team has a very good own structure. HTP was in 2017 a Mercedes supported team. They get some support from AMG, but also needed sponsors. From a support kinda view HTP just got maybe 20% support compared to WRT.

For R-Motorsport I don't know really. I think they will be similar to an HTP than a WRT.

M Sport, Gargae 59, Grasser, etc ARE factory teams essentially. I was having a laugh

The 'customer assistance' trucks in the paddocks make it abundantly clear how much factory interest there is.

Jorrit i was only really asking about the Aston team because AM haven't had such a heavyweight involvement at this level for a few years. It's all been about GT2 (sorry, GTE!)

You’re right, AM have only been pro-am, wonder if this is a pre amble for the new Vantage GT3 coming 2019

Well, could be I suppose? It would be nice to see the marque contending again, never really been a frontrunner at GT3 level.

Maybe the jaguars will go to GT Open. Be a shame to not see those race too in 2018

If it had to be one or the other. I'd rather see the Lexus. I expect Emil Frey to have more reliability with new car.

Now we just need somebody to run the Acura NSX in Blancpain now.

JAS Motorsport will probably be the Honda "customer" team before long

I think the Cat's were fortunate to get the dispensation for this long, lovely as it was to see a privateer get stuck in.

The privately funded F-Type project must be well in development now though so assuming that sees the light of day ahead of next season the XKR's would have had to go soon anyway?
