ASTON MARTIN RACING CLAIM 24 HOURS OF LE MANS VICTORY

Aston Martin Racing has taken victory at the 85th 24 Hours of Le Mans in dramatic style, after Jonny Adam (GB) snatched the GTE Pro lead on the final lap of the iconic endurance race.

Partnered by Darren Turner (GB) and Daniel Serra (BR), the trio and their Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE performed faultlessly to ensure they remained in the hunt for victory right until the death.

With just over 45 minutes left on the clock, Jonny Adam found himself pitting at the same time as the #63 Corvette for a final fuel stop. With both cars exiting the pit lane together – with Adam in second – it was inevitable that he would have to make the pass while on track.

The Aston Martin Vantage GTE's foundation is the V8 Vantage road car.

Weight and Aerodynamics

There are minimum weight limits in sports car racing and for the GTE class it is 1245 kg, around 400 kg less than the road car. Significant weight is saved in the bodywork where carbon fibre panels replace the already lightweight aluminium in the road car. The interior of the car is also stripped as items like electrically-controlled leather seats, in-car entertainment and sound proofing are not needed.
