2nd Century reworking

The 2nd Century pages have been reorganised so that it makes it a bit easier to find the model you are looking for. If this works out as is should, the VH pages will follow in a similar way.

Silverstone 2009 Le Mans series, page updated

Five years ago, at the 2009 Silverstone Le Mans Series race, there was so much Aston Martin interest, a good result for the marque was almost guaranteed. What with the LMP1 DBR1-2, the AM engine Lola, a DBR9 and a V8 Vantage GT2, the track was nothing short of variety. The page featuring this epic race has just been updated with many previously unseen images.

DBR1 and 2 replicas

DBR1 and 2 replicas

What with the DBR1 and DBR2 being such very rare cars, it is hardly surprising that enthusiasts have copies or replicas made from donor Aston Martins such as the inexpensive DBS. This new page features just such a car. An homage to one of the most beautiful racing sports cars of the 1950’s.

DBR9/101, the most successful Aston Martin customer racecar of all time

DBR9/101 was the first customer spec DBR9 and is now considered the most successful DBR9 and the most successful privately-owned Aston Martin racing car in the marque’s history. The page featuring this important car has been recently updated with many previously unseen photographs.

DBRS9 prototype page updated

Aston Martin Racing took the opportunity to unveil the DBRS9 on their stand within the paddock at Le Mans, just a couple of days before the 73rd running of the 24 hour race, 16th/17th June 2005. Many new images added.

RHAM/1 –  The Muncher – loads of new images

In 1977, this ageing DBSV8 defied all the odds to compete and finish the greatest endurance racing event, the 24 hours of Le Mans. RHAM/1 was built by Robin Hamilton, a midlands Aston Martin dealer, who went on to develop the 1980’s Nimrod. I have added loads of new images of RHAM/1 today.

V8 Vantage Le Mans page updated

This is one of the greatest Aston Martins of all time. Limited to just 40 examples, the V8 Vantage Le Mans page has had loads of new images added today.

Lola T70 with Aston Martin V8 engine

This is not an Aston Martin yet is a very important piece of Aston Martin history. This Lola T70 raced during 1967 with a prototype of the AM V8 engine that went on to be used in Aston Martins for the next 30 years.

Finally seen an AMR-One

Having been unable to be at Le Mans in 2010, I missed one of only two possible opertunities to photograph the AMR-One, the LMP1 racecar that was just a little too ahead of it’s time. No worries, thankfully one was displayed in Parc Prive during the Aston Martin Centenary Celebrations in Kensington Palace during July 2013.
