...but will be running a pair of GT4s under the 'AMR Performance Centre' name-
  • Ross Gunn/Jamie Chadwick/Alex Brundle/Peter Cate
  • Darren Turner/Chris Goodwin/Chris Harris/Christian Gebhardt

Good to see Jamie Chadwick back in an Aston- she's been signed as an official AMR junior driver alongside her single-seater commitments

My friend Erwan took some pics of the DBR1-2 when it was racing earlier this year at Paul Ricard and Jurek had some pics laying around from 2009, so we decided to do a little write up and get Chris Buncombe's take on the car. He actually raced that very same car (chassis B0860-HU02) back in 2009.

Unfortunately I never got to see (and hear) it race, but it's still one of the coolest cars I've ever seen.

Hope it's of interest to any of you!

It seems there will be another Aston Martin V12 'prototype' if SC365's story is true and they use the Valkyrie in the new lmp1/hypercar regs.

Tech question about the current Vantage GTE and GT3 cars. Why are the exhaust exits so close to the front wheels? Is it just to have short exhaust pipes to reduce back pressure/boost power and torque, or is it strictly driven by packaging due to the turbos being within the V of the engine?

I know that the BMW M8 runs similar turbocharger packaging, but has a conventional side exit (albeit on only the right side of the car) exhaust system.

I think it looks cool and reminds me of some of the old JGTC/Super GT cars (Nissan Skyline GTR and 350Z, eventually the Honda HSV and Lexus SC430), but it seems odd for a GTE/GT3 car.

Multimatic linked to hypercar project.

We'll know soon if the rumor about an imminent announcement today after ACO press conference holds true.
