Russian Age Aston Martin Plans
Rob Schirle hasn’t had to sit on the edge of his seat this
week, waiting to see whether he gets a second Le Mans entry –
because his team already had two, one for an Aston Martin DBR9 and
the other for a Ferrari 550.
“The second Aston Martin has now arrived,”
says the team owner, and is currently being prepared for Istanbul
(where both DBR9s will race).
The driver line-ups
Car #61 (CHASSIS NUMBER DBR9/101) ANTONIO GARCIA / NATHAN KINCH
Car #62 (CHASSIS NUMBER DBR9/4) PETER HARDMAN / CHRISTIAN VANN /
In chassis 101 at Le Mans, the drivers will be Garcia, Christophe
Bouchut “and a professional driver”.
The Cirtek Aston
Martin will race on Michelin tyres, so with the likes of Garcia
and Bouchut pedalling the lead car, there could be a very interesting
situation developing, comparing Cirtek pace to that of the Aston
Martin Racing machines.
plans will focus on the Le Mans Series and Le Mans this year, with
the possibility of some extra races in other series too.
