This weekend is the Spa 24 Hours and Sarah Bovy will be the first woman to race an Aston Martin when she drives a Vantage GT3. While this is the first time she will be racing in the Vantage GT3, she is no stranger to the 24 hour endurance race as this is her third time running in the race. She will race with her teammates Michael Scmhetz, Pierre Grivegnée and Bert Redant.

The car is one of two entered by Aston Martin Brussels and is run by the Belgian Pino Sperlinga’s team GPR. The race will have a pretty full field with over 70 cars entered for the endurance race. Sarah will be driving in the number 89 Aston Martin and will compete in the PROAM class.

We will be watching to see how Sarah and the team does in the race. Let us know what you think of her racing for Aston Martin in the comments below.

“Of course, I’m proud to wear Aston Martin colours and to achieve something that no other woman has done before,” said Bovey. “I think I can learn a lot from the most experienced drivers in the team and at the same time I know I will find my place and will have the opportunity to prove myself behind the wheel.”
