Aston Martin Racing made good progress from hours three to six at the Le Mans 24 Hours. Both DBR9s ran faultlessly and moved steadily up the overall leader board.

Stephane Sarrazin drove a double stint in car 009, which remains second in class. Tomas Enge drove two stints in car 007, which sits 10th in GT1, before handing over to Stephane Ortelli.

Stephane Sarrazin (009): “The car was really good throughout my stint. I was able to continue with a good pace, although I was held up in traffic quite a lot. The only problem I had was when a stone got caught under my throttle pedal, resulting in it staying open on one lap at the chicane. But so far so good.”

Tomas Enge (007): “As a result of our problems earlier in the race, it is not possible for us to fight with the leaders at the moment. The car is performing well and the only thing we can do is drive flat-out for the whole race and see where that gets us. Maximum attack!”
