Aston Martin Works LMP1 Gulf is being developed with Lola, Michelin, Koni and BBS and the company has Gulf Oil and Hackett as partners in this endeavor. Aston Martin Works LMP1 Gulf cars will be raced by drivers Jan Charouz (CZ), Tomas Enge (CZ), and Stefan Mücke (DE) and Harold Primat (CH) and Darren Turner (GB).
“2009 is a hugely significant year for Aston Martin at Le Mans and the challenge of reclaiming victory in this famous race for Aston Martin and Great Britain was simply too great to ignore,” said Aston Martin Chairman, David Richards. “However, we do not underestimate the task. While we have won the GT1 class for the last two years, competing against the proven speed and endurance of the diesel-powered cars with all their years of winning the prototype class, will be a massive undertaking. Nonetheless, I see this as a great opportunity to showcase the ingenuity of British engineering talent.”
