Getting back on topic, steering away from GT2 Ferraris, is it clear weather or not BMS will keep racing their DBR9's in the FIA GT Championship? I seem to remember reading that the relationship between them and AMR wasn't particularly great...

Ah, it seems I stand corrected regarding the BMS Astons, courtesy of DSC - BMS won't be racing them, it would seem.

IMO it's a been a thoroughly miserable two years for BMS in FIA GT1. The results back this up, but moreso when you put 06 and 07 in the context of 02,03 and 04 in FIA GT.
Tyres have played a major part in this, but nevertheless it hasn't been pretty.

If Embassy can put a team together to design an LMP car I fee that Prodrive may just be able to do the same perhaps?

DR would love to win outright, 1959 was it last time? But he is also a realist and to beat the diesels he needs to do a damn good job and a lot of development, there is a certain poetry with 2009.

Just another little thought, in my day DB stood for David Brown, will really new cars be called prefixed DR?

I'm sure Prodrive could, just as they could have designed an F1 car.

In that case they were going to buy customer Mclarens, it would make sense to tap into Lola's expertise, either with a revised (styling) coupe, or badging the current car.

They will surely have their hands full with the various GT cars, not to mention Subaru WRC's.

Are we?!

The subject matter that was being discussed was, not my opinion, but the specifics of the rules and standards that are used by the ACO for acceptance to enter LeMans and how it pertained to the BMS Aston Martin DBR9 and the auto-entry they recieved for LeMans. These are specific things with specific qualifiers. I try very hard not to be rude or condescending to others in the forums while giving as specific and as correct of an answer as I know. So whom in this exchange was trying to score points on who?

L.P.

If BMS does not enter a GT1, I assume they may give the entry to another team. Second Team Modena car?

Mod note: Trying to score points over each other!

To the mods this certainly seems to be the evident with a few members of this sub-forum. Frankly people notice this style of posting and judge the poster accordingly. However of concern to the mods is that it stops others posting because they can't be bothered to get into an exchange over something petty, or just because they find it tedious in the extreme.

There is no need to pick up on small points to prove you are right. There is also no shame in being wrong about something - you should try it as it is very liberating.

This is not aimed at anyone in particular, but please have a think about whether it applies to you. If you don't see it and continue we will start telling you, as we feel it is driving many with a love for this sport away from our forum.

P.S. There is no need to reply to this, PM if you have any concerns.

As a mod here (alright, I guess a 'virtual mod' or even an 'honorary mod' these days perhaps ) that's exactly how I feel.

And Adam, this is not a reply.......

Prodrive is building a windtunnel atm (if the still are...?) so if they design/build their own F1 in 2009?.. a P1 in 2010 could be possible as well. I think they will go for another chassis at first. But could very well, like Pesca step up in future years to own production...

Each race will feature a grid of 18 Aston Martin Vantage N24s, a 4.3 litre race-developed evolution of the V8 Vantage which has been proven in endurance and sprint races in Europe and the Middle East.
