Hastily prepared for the qualifying weekend and driven by Eric Helary and Alain Cudini, the car failed to qualify for the 1995 race by the narrowest of margins. It was unfortunate as the DB7 had become victim of the intense rivalry between the other GT1 cars, the McLaren F1 and Ferrari F40 GTE. Despite being on the reserve list, it didn’t race in anger; it’s owner was so exasperated being classified below 3 others, he retired the car. I believe that if the car was able to be entered in the GT2 class, it would have raced, and maybe even finished. The car now resides in the owners motor museum, Manoir de l’Automobile, in Brittany, France.
