Changed line-up at Aston Martin

Aston Martin Racing will look a bit different at the three final FIA WEC races of the year in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Like in previous years, they have chosen to reduce their efforts to two drivers per car.

Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen wil race in the AMR #95, while Maxime Martin and Alex Lynn will share #97.

Jonny Adam will race in TF Sport #90, where he replaces Euan Hankey in their GTE Am car.

Aston Martin Racing announced that Darren Turner has signed a new long-term contract, where he will focus more on the development of both street and race cars.

The changes will take effect this autumn, with Adam and Turner return to the cars for the 1000 miles of Sebring, 6 Hours of Spa Francorchamps, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Aston Martin Racing also runs the #98, but there are no changes to this line-up.

AMR has had a difficult start to the 2018/19 season, where their brand new Vantage has been a lot slower than the old one, and the team has been asking for BOP changes. Even though they got some help at Le Mans, there were still several seconds slower per lap.

There will be a new BOP for the race at Silverstone, but we haven’t been told the exact numbers yet.

Aston Martin Racing and all the other FIA WEC teams will be racing again in two weeks’ time on 6 Hours of Silverstone.
