This year Aston Martin will be coming back to the endurance race with an impressive 2014 spec V12 Vantage GT3. The 2014 race will be the British carmaker’s 9th consecutive attempt at the gruelling race in Germany’s Eifel Forest, and the third using its V12 Vantage GT3.
Nürburgring 24 Hour Endurance Race
Last year Aston Martin lead for most of the race but sadly finished 10th. This year the team have high hopes of winning the race!
We made it clear in 2012 that we have a five-year plan to be in a position to challenge for the win at Nürburgring 24 Hours
The drivers of the car will be Darren Turner, Stefan Mücke, and Pedro Lamy. Lamy is a former Formula One driver for Lotus and Minardi.
Demonstration of Reliability and Performance
A private team called Leonard Motorsport have also entered a V12 Vantage GT3 in the race this year, and Aston Martin will also be entering a handful of production-based ‘engineering cars’ in the race.
This continues Aston Martin’s long-term strategy of entering lightly modified production cars for the ultimate demonstration of reliability and performance, and the team will be seeking to preserve its 100 percent finishing record.
The 2014 Nürburgring 24 Hour endurance race runs from June 21-22. Good luck Aston Martin.
