Aston Martin Teams Led by Young Driver AMR at Nurburgring


Aston Martin Racing‘s bad luck in the FIA World Endurance Championship continued, with the highest-placed of their five LMGTE entries finishing fourth in the Pro category at the inaugural 6 Hours of Nurburgring.

Marco Sorensen and Christoffer Nygaard drove the #95 Aston Martin Vantage V8 to fourth position in LMGTE Pro, coming behind the two Porsche Team Manthey cars and an AF Corse Ferrari.

Starting from third, Sorensen gained a position in the first hour, but thereafter, he could not hold onto second, and the pair eventually dropped down to fourth. However, an incident-free race still allowed them to be the highest-placed Aston Martin team.

“It was a very difficult race today,” Marco Sorensen said. “We didn’t have the pace to compete with Porsche and Ferrari at the front. The car itself was good, Christoffer and myself made no mistakes, but we were racing a bit in a league of our own.

“But nevertheless we still drove a clean and good race and finished as highest placed Aston Martin. I hope we will be in better position at the next round in Austin in Texas.”
