Wow hedge funds started shorting Aston Martinís debt (which costs a fortune to do and is quite risky). That is a really horrific sign.

That's definitely not good and I'm thinking there won't be an Arabian investment group or other savior. It looks like they're most likely out of the hypercar and F1 sponsor game soon sadly. Maybe someone will buy the scraps and we'll see them saved but I think it will have to be seriously condensed business.

They probably should've stayed a private limited company instead of going public.

I think bankruptcy and liquidation are more likely (with someone buying the name in this process). AML has way too much debt on their books and their ownership is not going to accept 75% declines in the value of their equity.

Well looks like AMR has cut costs but sticking with the Valkyrie's big engine alone, detuned by 30-35% and RWD only to meet the new regs.

The biz speak at the end of the article is heavy "During our time in racing since 2005, we’ve had various headwinds to the business,” he said.

“We’ve always remained true to our commitment to racing in sports cars. We’ve been through various global banking crises in 2008.

“That hit us all hard, but we stayed with it. We carried on racing. Having some headwinds in our business at the moment doesn’t alter our commitment to racing at all.”

Just like LMP1 Privateers are now... If they are Mega, Toyota must be SUPERMEGA ! Unless a proper OEM comes in for Hypercar, we are in for more Toyota Bore walkovers for the forseeable future. It's not their fault they have no competition, but they are just a Very Boring Brand.

AMR president says that current shareprices don't influence racing plans

http://www.dailysportscar.com/2019/0...to-racing.html

Also talks about how LMP2 will have to be slowed down as not to be faster than the hypercars. But also mentions that LMP2 should still have a chance if a hypercar is poorly built or run. Interesting take there from somebody involved.

That's an insult to poorly built cars, it was a train wreck with no chance of success. At least Nissan's poorly built attempt actually ran a few laps

I'm not talking about lap times, because I have no idea what those will be. I'm speaking of the (top) speeds of the cars. Right now the private cars are approaching 700hp, these new ones without the hybrid will be 750hp and probably more. I wonder if they will break 360kmh. I think it's possible that will happen because of the shapes of these cars and the amount of power they will have. What will slow them down is all the unnecessary weight they have compared to now.

Aston Martin is set have four Valkyrie hypercars on the grid for the 2020/21 FIA World Endurance Championship season split across two teams, Multimatic and R-Motorsport.
