Aston Martin at Le Mans: Update after 19 Hours


La Sarthe, 12 June 2011. Aston Martin Racing’s remaining customer teams continued successfully through the night at La Sarthe.

After a safety-car period of two hours and 20 minutes due to an incident with a front runner, the Gulf AMR Middle East was running well in the GTE-Am class.

Driven by Fabien Giroix, Mike Wainwright and Roald Goethe, the car unfortunately retired from the 79th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans at 0400 hours following an accident at the Porsche Curves. The V8-powered car had been running faultlessly but sustained too much damage to continue.

After 19 hours of problem-fee running, the Kronos Racing/MarcVDS Aston Martin V12-powered DBR1-2 is running in 8th place.

Kronos Racing/MarcVDS Team Principal Marc van Dalen said: "We are very happy with our progress - we have had no problems at all. Everything has been perfect. I am trying to slow our drivers down because we cannot catch the car in front. We had a pre-race plan to get to the finish and we need to stick to that plan."
