Aston Martin Vantage V8 GT2

Chassis 001 now in the hands of Drayson-Barwell, delivered just in time for Round 3 of the ALMS at Long Beach on 19/4/2008 where it finished 11th in GT2 class in the hands of Paul Drayson and Jonny Cocker. Fuelled by E85 Bio-ethanol and run by Barwell Motorsport, the car handled well with good brakes but currently down on power compared to rivals. Stunning looking car.

As it turns out, Drayson-Barwell actually owns #001 and 002, the 2nd car being for spares. So it would appear if the Gigawave car was never built.

Or the planned Gigawave car is in fact the James Watt Automotive car...as the livery on that car look rather like Gigawave's current livery

That chassis belongs to AMR/Prodrive and is a development car.

As far as I am aware James is still getting 003.

And I found a photo of two chassis painted up in Drayson-Barwell's colours.

http://picasaweb.google.com/dkraige/...01261846246386

Which I take is 001 & 002 (WMUCarGuy said above that Drayson-Barwell have two chassis's)

According to Autosport Magazine, JWA's Vantage GT2 was scheduled for delivery on Tuesday. (don't know if it means the 12th or 19th )

Did Drayson even own either of the Vantage GT2's?

Note that whichever of the Drayson (no longer a Barwell connection) cars is being raced currently, is running on second generation bio fuel (produced from dead wood).
