ASTON MARTIN 009 RETIRES FROM LE MANS 24 HOURS
The Aston Martin Racing 009 car of Stuart Hall (GB), Peter Kox (NL) and Harold Primat (CH) has retired during the 18th hour of this year's Le Mans 24 Hours.
The car spun off and hit a barrier at turn 17, the entry to the famous Porsche curves, whilst Primat was driving.
Primat, who was uninjured, said: "It was a shock but I feel absolutely fine. I am not exactly sure what happened, but together with the team we are trying to work it out."
With just over five hours of the Le Mans 24 Hours remaining, Aston Martin's lead car is the 007 entry crewed by Jan Charouz (CZ), Tomas Enge (CZ) and Stefan Mucke (DE), which is currently running in fourth place.
