Aston Martin racer goes green

2008-01-07 08:16
Aston Martin has released the first impressions of its new race car, known as the Vantage GT2.

Based on the Aston Martin Vantage V8 road car, the GT2 is the manufacturer's first car designed to run on either standard race fuel or, where the regulations allow, E85 bio-ethanol.

Its racing division successfully converted a DBRS9 to run on bio-ethanol in 2007.

Robin Brundle, Aston Martin Racing?s new managing director, said: "Thanks to our experience with the DBRS9, we have been able to develop a bio-ethanol fuelled version, which will be eligible to compete in an increasing number of series now accommodating this greener fuel, including the American Le Mans Series.?

Aston Martin chairman David Richards is expected to announce the racing divisions plans for 2008 at the Autosport show on 10 January.
