Aston Martin confirms two-car programme for FIA WEC

Aston Martin with Heart of Racing has confirmed their interest in entering the FIA World Endurance Championship 2025 with two cars in Hypercar.

There will also be a single car entering the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship, as it was the plan from the start.

Heart of Racing only announced a single car originally for the FIA WEC 2025, but with the new 2-car rule, there was starting to be some question marks, in regards to HoR and AM still being interested and able to run in the FIA WEC.

The track testing of the brand new Valkyrie AMR-LMH will start very soon, with the real world tests so far only being done with the Valkyrie model.

The car will have a modified version of the original Cosworth 6,5 liter naturally aspirated V12, which are able to run to up 11.000 rpm, turning out more than a 1000 hp. You are not allowed that kind of power in the Hypercar category, so it will have to be screwed down, to be able to run in the Hypercar category, with the typical power output around or just below 700 hp.

Aston Martin will be the twelfth different manufacturer to compete with a car in the Hypercar category in the FIA WEC. However, Bykolles isn’t currently running their car, and it’s unlikely for them to return, since the space on the grid probably isn’t there for them to enter once again. Scuderia Glickenhaus has closed their FIA WEC programme, and will instead focus on their racing at the Nürburgring.

There are no news regarding the drivers for Aston Martin with Heart of Racing in the Valkyrie AMR-LMH cars in neither the FIA WEC or IMSA.
