On May the 4th during the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) the Vantage GTE Pro car took second place in the six-hour race at Spa. By supporting the Aston Martin Racing team, Jaeger-LeCoultre is more than ever proud of this partnership.
Aston Martin Racing has finished second in both GTE classes at round two of the 2013 WEC, the Six Hours of Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.
The Gulf-liveried #98 Vantage GTE Pro car, driven by Bruno Senna (BR), Fred Makowiecki (FR) and Rob Bell (GB), took second place in the six-hour race following a competitive performance by all three drivers. Their prospects of challenging for the race win were dashed when an untimely safety car interruption caused them to fall behind their competitors in the early stages of the race.
John Gaw, Team Principal at Aston Martin Racing comments: “Thanks to all the team and partners who have enabled us to head into the most demanding race of the year leading the championship.”
The FIA World Endurance Championship resumes with the 24 Hours of Le Mans on 22/23 June. The five Aston Martin Vantage GTEs – which all share their bonded aluminium structures and basic engine and suspension architecture with Aston Martin’s sportiest road-going model, the V8 Vantage – will next be on track at the Le Mans test day on 9 June.
