An Action-Packed First Four Hours At Nurburgring 24h

After four hours of action-packed racing at the 2014 Nürburgring 24 Hours, two of the four Aston Martin Vantages are in podium positions in their class – the #55 V12 Vantage is in second place in SP8 and the #100 Vantage N430 is in third place in SP10.

Despite a fantastic start, that saw the #007 Vantage GT3 driven by Pedro Lamy (PT) climb from its starting position of 14th up to eighth in the opening laps, refueling at the first pit stop took longer than planned and Lamy exited the pits in P18.

The V12-machine continued with its charge and at the four-hour mark the car was running in 15th with Stefan Mücke (DE) behind the wheel.

“There was an issue with refueling, which has now been resolved,” commented Head of Motorsport at Aston Martin David King. “Obviously it cost us some time but these things can happen. It’s a long race and we’re still in the very early hours.”

In the #SP8 class, the #55 V12 Vantage is in second place and the #70 V8 Vantage N430 is in fourth.

Currently in third place in the SP10 class is the #100 Vantage N430. Andreas Gülden (DE) started the race and climbed 18 places in the first lap while taking second place in class. After a double stint, British journalist Dickie Meaden (GB) took over the wheel and continued the charge.

“We’re playing the long game with all of our cars,” King continues. “ We asked the drivers to stay out of trouble and keep the cars safe and all of them have done so, despite some difficult driving conditions on the greasy track. We just need to keep pounding round safely and keep out of the pits.”
