2014 Le Mans 24: Aston Martin Leads Gte Am At Four-Hour Mark

After four hours of racing in dramatically changing weather conditions, Aston Martin Racing is leading the GTE Am class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans with its #98 V8 Vantage GTE.

Pedro Lamy (PT) started the race at 1500hrs CEST from second place on the grid and began a triple stint that included two heavy rain showers and ever-changing tyre strategies.

“The team did a great job with the tyre choices today,” commented Lamy. “The plan was to do my stint and stay out of trouble as it is a long race. With so much happening on track this wasn’t easy but the engineers and I worked together to make some good decisions and make the most of the pit stops.”

At 18.15, Lamy handed over to team-mate Christoffer Nygaard (DN).

In the GTE Pro class, Darren Turner (GB) started the race from third and managed to keep the #97 Vantage GTE intact, despite incidents happening all around him when the first rain fell. With the safety car deployed to clear the track of debris, the team took the decision to put Stefan Mücke (DE) in earlier than scheduled, but the pit stop and change to wet tyres didn’t quite work in the team’s favour. Bruno Senna (BR) took over on the four our mark and the car is in fifth place.

"This is a long race," commented Turner. "We are staying out of trouble and playing the long game."

The #95 Young Driver V8 Vantage GTE is in fifth place in the pack of 14 GTE Am cars. Nicki Thiim (DN) started the race and currently holds the fastest lap of the GTE Am class. David Heinemeier Hansson (DN) is now behind the wheel.

A new free-to-download Aston Martin Racing iPhone and Android app is now available on the iTunes and Google Play stores. Users can follow the race, get driver and track info and see telemetric data live from the Aston Martin Racing garage.
