A LIGHT IN THE DARK: ASTON MARTIN’S LE MANS
2013 was the 90th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours. There are only a few races in the world with the prestige and history of this event, and similarly few racing teams with the stature of Aston Martin, who themselves are celebrating their centenary this year. A huge effort was put into the team’s entry for 2013, and ahead of the race the mood was buoyant and positive.
Little did the team know how incredibly challenging the race would be, marred by the death of a driver and a redemptive victory lost in the final hours of the 24 hours. But the team showed resilience and dignity in the face of all that came their way. Here’s a tribute to their efforts last weekend in France.
