Aston Martin DBRS9

Aston Martin will be selling a DBR9 derived road car: the DBRS9. The aerodynamics really resemble the DBR9 a lot, it has 550 hp (20% more than a standard DB9) and by using lots of carbon parts they managed to make it 480 kg lighter than the original DB9.

The article on lemans.com mentioned that Cirtek wants to race the DBR9 at Spa.

Quote:
A team that will be spending that kind of money is Cirtek, the Russian-financed racing team based at the Mallory Park circuit in England. The teamís new DBR9 is also on show in the Aston Martin enclosure at Le Mans, and team boss Robert Schirle plans to have it on the line for the start of the Spa 24 Hours.

Add the Ferrari FXX and the DBRS9 and you'd have the makings of a Group N type supercar class.

With Ratel taking a close interest in the car, expect it to figure in FIA GT in some capacity.

But reading the reports it doesnt seem to be designed around any classification, but they say its suppoed to fill a void they identified. GT2 was mentioned, but they also mentioned national and club events! Has the budget around national series got that large now!

The title of this thread was referring to a road going version of the DBR9, called the DBRS9, but we seem to have moved onto Cirtek wanting to race a DBR9 at Spa. This is a separate issue (and, as FIRE, says, old news) since the Cirtek car is surely one of the customer racing cars discussed elsewhere on 10-Tenths. I blame gwyllion for confusing the issue, or is it me that's confused?

The DBRS9 is also designeed as a race car for natrional series etc.

As I understand it Cirtek may race the DBRS9 as well, not sure though.

But in wich class would it go then? It'd be too weak for GT1 and too strong for GT2. Do we have to think series like Spanish GT and BELCAR then?

Ratel was in attendance and there was speculation about a new class.

I could see this car racing in World Challenge GT(North America). Pretty slick package.
