Aston Martin Sunday Service: 22/5/16

Another weekend, another Sunday Service and one of our favourites to boot!



It seems there's no stopping Aston Martin, be it remixes of old favourites in the shape of the Vantage GT12 and GT8 - and the manual V12 Vantage S - the track-only Vulcan or the all-new DB11 we had our first spin in just the other day.

Among all this Aston Martin has somehow found time in its hectic schedule to invite PistonHeads back for another Sunday Service at the company HQ in Gaydon. Those attending will have the good fortune to see these new Astons as well as get a behind-the-scenes look at where and how they are made. Tradition is, of course, a big part of the Aston Martin story too and there will be a chance to walk down memory lane and gaze upon Aston Martin's heritage fleet. Need more? There will even be experts on hand to tell you all the stories about the cars on display. Want to get hands on? There will also be some racing simulators on which to prove your (virtual) driving mettle.

A little bit of housekeeping before you sign up. As it's a live manufacturing site access to some areas is restricted and attendees will need to sign a confidentiality agreement. We'll send a link to this by email to those attending so make sure your email address is up to date in your profile and add your name to the calendar here.

Details:
Date: May 22 2016
Cost: Free: Haribo or Beer (if you're feeling generous)
Start time: 0900h
Finish: 1300h
Total places available: 350

Location:
Aston Martin
Banbury Rd,
Gaydon,
Warwick
CV35 0DB

There's date typo in the text - unless the event is on the 8th May and not the 22nd as per the sign up page?

Yes! Love the cross country run from Bristol to Gaydon at 0700. No point taking the M5 when the Fosse Way is straighter and almost as fast.... cloud9

Bit of a strange date. That is the same Day as the National Aston Show at Duxford. How to alienate the AMOC members... Why would you make them clash? Clearly trying to interest non Aston Owners???

Have a great day. Just off to remove my name from the list. Can't be in 2 places at once furiousbouncegetmecoat

I'm an Aston owner. I've got my name down for this event as I have no interest in going to the AMOC thing.

I came away feeling a little disappointed, the cars on display were more interesting than amazing. But It didn't matter because I went at 4pm an hour before they closed and got in half price!

I'm busy for this one, which is a shame as I really enjoyed going last year (even if it was freezing cold, but it was February...)

Is it possible to carry my 1-year old toddler along? She will be "restrained" (i.e. on a carrier) all the time.
