Real World Racing – Le Mans & WEC 2012 – Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE. [VIDEO]

 

Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE.

After a good session of the FIA World Endurance Championship and Le Mans with the Vantage GT2, Team Aston Martin confirms its return to motorsports with the Vantage GTE. The cup car will participate in the GTE Pro Category of the eight round series and will have a second factory made car in the third round of Le Mans. The driver line-up has been confirmed as Darren Turner, Stefan Mücke and Adrian Fernandez .
 
Aston Martin Lagonda Chairman, David Richards, while sharing his enthusiasm for the new project said, “It’s great to return to our core motorsport activity – production based GT racing. It formed the basis for Aston Martin’s return to competition when the DBR9 GT1-racer was launched in 2004, and it was in GT racing that we achieved our famous victories at Le Mans in 2007 and 2008.

The GT category is also now the most competitive class in world sports car racing and with the new FIA World Endurance Championship the GTE class will, I believe, offer the closest fought and most exciting spectacle

 

We will see many premium sports car brands competing with great sounding racing cars based on their production models, which all the fans can relate to.” In order to give the team more competitive experience of the Vantage GTE ahead of Le Mans, Aston Martin Racing will also contest the Long Beach and Laguna Seca rounds of the American Le Mans series on April 14th and May 12, respectively
