Video: doing Spa Franchorchamps in a V12 Vantage

I love driving my V12 Vantage on the track. And I am proud to say, I’m slowly getting better at it too ๐Ÿ™‚ Last week at the BIG 5 track event, I was able to do about 40 laps around my favorite circuit, Spa Franchorchamps. Here’s one of my laps, filmed by my friend Mark with his phone while in the passenger seat. It’s a bit shaky, but I think it gives a good impression of what it’s like to drive a V12 Vantage around this beautiful track. Enjoy:

The Power Beauty Soulmates go Biarritz

Last April I already visited Biarritz together with my friend Eduard, to plan routes in the Pyrenees for the club trip in June. So last week, we went again, but this time for real, with twenty Aston Martins! Two days driving from Amsterdam to Biarritz, 4 days in the Pyrenees, then back to Amsterdam in 1 day. Next to my job as “route manager”, I was able to make lots of photos of Aston Martins at beautiful locations (and fuel stations ๐Ÿ™‚ ). Here’s a selection:

Many happy faces at Ons Tweede Thuis / “De Dijk”

“De Dijk” is a home for the mentally disabled and people with an autistic disorder or acquired brain injury. It’s the Amsterdam location of the “Ons Tweede Thuis” foundation (“Our Second” Home”). Last Sunday, we visited De Dijk with four Aston Martins to take 15 residents for a nice ride along the Amstel river and a short highway run. Resulting in big smiles and many happy faces ๐Ÿ™‚ A quick impression:

Agent 002 is back, now in Union Jack style!

Summer 2014 is coming, which means our calendar is filling up with lots of car events. So it’s about time that our favourite summer car, the Cobalt Blue V12 Roadster, gets a nice summer outfit again. Last year, the Roadster was made into a look-a-like of the Vantage GT3 in Bilstein livery. For this summer, we wanted something equally wild, but with an original design. So we dropped off our blue beauty at JD Customs and they designed and created this spectacular Union Jack style wrap:
