White Plains, NY – Even racecars need some time off. The Car Guy Nation Aston Martin Vantage GT4 spent last weekend at the Vigneto Rally (www.vignetorally.com) and managed to rustle up a hefty donation for breast cancer research. Limited to 200 people, this exotic car cruise began with hot laps at New Jersey Motorsports Park then toured New Jersey wineries in a scavenger hunt-like challenge. Despite gloomy weather, the weekend wrapped up with a “Vintner’s Luncheon” and “Concours d’Elegance” held at Stockton College’s Seaview Hotel and Resort.
A threat of rain could not stop car-crazy participants from representing nearly every manufacturer like Ferrari and Lamborghini to Porsche and Ford. In addition to ticket proceeds, a live auction drove the fund-raising efforts and the chance to solo drive a full-blown Aston Martin racecar fueled the bidding. Much to the delight of owner Rob Nimkoff, a simple cruise back to the hotel in the Vantage GT4 was worth $2,000 to benefit Pennies in Action (www.penniesinaction.org) and their research efforts in the fight against breast cancer.
It won’t be long until the Car Guy Nation Aston Martin is back on track with special test days at Lime Rock Park June 28th and 29th 2013. Brought to you by TRG/Aston Martin Racing North America, this amazing opportunity to drive a Vantage GT4 around the historic 1.5-mile road course is open to a select few and includes in depth orientation with professional drivers.
