One of them will get a works contract based on their performances at the test and throughout the year.

Jamie Chadwick seems to have been the fastest of the Aston academy drivers.
Excellent work by her if so.

It could be Pirelli 2006 all over again but with even less of a case.

They also tested today the updated 16 car, which was over a second slower than the current one.
Its the middle of the day so its a lot hotter. Are you comparing its lap times to that in the race or qualifying?

I don't know, Dagys made the reference

However, by Sunday the useless Pirelli trash and sand on surface slowing them down was already weaker than previously, after all the Mic/Dunlop running in the 6h, so that quickens it.

Times are here: fiawec.alkamelsystems.com

There was some mention during the test that some of the Aston drivers' transponders had got mixed up so I don't know if these are the corrected times or not. Presume they are.

But not in that color scheme, yuk!

I wouldn't be surprised if we're looking at the Vantage GTE successor, I'm sure Aston can easily find enough investors to make the required number of production cars.

I'll be 2018 at the earliest though.

My worry for Aston at the moment is pumping money into the DBX project and possibly getting themselves deeper in financial trouble, the company produces GREAT sports cars and should be renown for that - not following the herd and producing a 4x4

So going forward all Aston road cars will be getting their 5.2 TT V12 or the AMG 4.0 TT V8 from the AMG GT and C63. For GTE only the 4.0 would be legal, so that's what I think they'll run. My question is, who do you think will develop the engine? AMG or Prodrive?

I can't remember if V8 is the only mandatory layout for NA engines in GTLM specs, but as SRT viper obtained a huge waive to use the 8L V10; I think that being the 4.5 V8 too weak compared to new turbo engines, AMR had to switch to the 5.9 V12 from vantage gt3, destroked to 5.5L of course for the "new" vantage GTLM.
Consumes won't be a issue, being vantage gt3 able to run more than 1 hour with 100L in BES, vantage GTE usually has a fuel tank of 90-95L.

Surely the GTE/GTLM will use the V8 turbo for reasons of physical size, and the GT3 will use the V12 turbo because it will be able to run in a very relaxed state of tune and never need a rebuild.
