After embarking on two fifteen-hour flights and immersing themselves in a three-day celebration marking Aston Martin’s 110-year milestone, the AMHT has returned to the UK.
Trustees Garry Taylor and Steve Waddingham (also AML Historian) travelled nearly 6,000 miles to Tokyo, Japan, where they attended and judged at the first-of-its-kind Aston Martin ARCADIA.
The ARCADIA Concours d’Elegance hosted a majestic display, showcasing a curated collection of the most distinguished Aston Martins, displaying a century of the iconic British brand’s history. After assessing and inspecting all the models, the 1940 Aston Martin Speed Model Type C was the overall winner. Following this was another two days packed with all things Aston Martin, including a grid walk at Fuji Speedway.
Reflecting on the Tokyo expedition, Garry Taylor shared his thoughts:
“It was a pleasure to be an integral part of Aston Martin ARCADIA and to bring the AMHT to Japan. Assessing, admiring, and awarding the cars was a huge privilege. These three days were nothing short of fantastic, and we hope the AMHT will participate in similar events in the future.”
