Road To Le Mans and the Aston Martin Racing Festival
As if it wasn’t enough already, Le Mans will be fully packed with beauties on the weekend of the iconic race. And by beauties I mean 38 shiny Aston Martin, 2 of them being the new Vulcan. Oh my.
This eye candy fest will take place on the 16th as the 24 Hours of Le Mans on the full circuit at La Sarthe, and will be filled with cars from all corners of the Aston Martin universe. The 45 minute race starts at 10:15 CET and, for the first time ever, will include two of the awe-inspiring 7-litre, V12-powered Aston Martin Vulcans – entered by the newly-opened AMR Performance Centre, based at the Nürburgring in Germany.
The race will feature a wide variety of Aston Martin machinery, including a number of examples of the company’s most successful racing car – the V12 Vantage GT3. There are also older Vantage GT1s, GT2s and even the 2016 FIA-World Endurance Championship-winning #95 Danetrain V8 Vantage GTE driven by Marco Sørensen’s brother Lasse on the entry list.
After all this, I have to say that I’ve definitely chosen the wrong year to not go to Le Mans.
I’ll stay glued to the tv then! Be it.
