Aston Martin Racing will announce its 2014 works team programme in the early part of next year.
The team, which goes into the final round as leaders of the LMGTE Manufacturers’ World Cup, needs to score maximum points in tomorrow’s race in order to emerge as world champion.
The Aston Martin works driver from Berlin, who shared the cockpit of the Vantage GTE V8 with his team colleague Darren Turner (Great Britain), won for the third time this season in the GTE pro class.
With just two rounds of the 2013 championship remaining, Aston Martin Racing is in second place in the WEC Manufacturers’ Championship.
The team, which has run five cars since the start of the season, will drop a car at the sixth round of the eight-round championship in Fuji.
Oliver Gavin: “It’s a great chance for me to compete both in the ALMS with Corvette Racing and in the WEC with Aston Martin Racin."
The team will continue to run the five V8-powered Vantage GTEs that competed at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and at the last round of the championship, the Six Hours of Sao Paulo, three in the GTE Pro class and two in GTE Am.
Aston Martin #96 Vantage GTE triumphed in the GTE Am class.
The fourth season event of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) is scheduled from 30th of August to 1st of September with the six hour race of São Paulo.
Stefan Mücke walked onto the podium with a big Danish national flag together with Darren Turner and Peter Dumbreck in Allan Simonsens honour.
