Aston Martin will become an official partner of ONE Pro Cycling, Britain’s first professional continental cycling team, in 2018 and 2019.
ONE Pro Cycling - founded in late 2014 by former England cricketer, Matt Prior - has the ambition to progress to taking part in the biggest races in the cycling world such as the Tour de France and the Vuelta a Espana.
Aston Martin’s design team is already working on creating a new team kit for the ONE Pro Cycling team, which will be showcased at the team’s 2018 season launch at Aston Martin’s No. 8 Dover Street in London in February.
Red Bull will race as Aston Martin Red Bull Racing from the 2018 season after agreeing a new title and innovation partnership with the car manufacturer.
The technical partnership will also see a new Advanced Performance Centre being established at Red Bull Racing’s campus later this year, enabling a closer working relationship between the two parties on both Formula One and road car technology. The centre is expected to create 110 new jobs, as well as housing Aston Martin’s design and engineering personnel responsible for future sports cars from the two companies.
