Two of the Aston Martin entries continue to hold podium placed positions - the #100 V8 Vantage N430 second in SP10 and #55 V12 Vantage third in SP8.

With the past four hours seeing competitive lap times delivered by both Stefan Mücke (DE) and Darren Turner (GB), the #007 Vantage GT3 is currently occupied by Pedro Lamy (PT) in eighth position.

Darren Turner said after exiting the car, “On the track we’re performing very well. I had a few sectors of the track which were clear and I was able to push hard and really enjoy my time in the car. It’s times like these where you experience the real highs of being a racing driver and also the fear of god.”

The #100 V8 Vantage N430 continues its impressive performance, with both British journalists Dickie Meaden and Chris Harris enjoying successful sessions, ensuring the car remains in second place in SP10. At the eight hour mark, Nürburgring specialist Andy Gülden (DE) remains in the car on the second of his back-to-back stints.

“I was supposed to get in the car about half an hour ago but Andreas is doing a great job hunting down the leader and is feeling good so he stayed out,” commented Dickie Meaden (GB). “We’re now within 30-seconds of the front of the class.”

The #55 V12 Vantage currently sits third in SP8 while the second V8 Vantage N430, car #70, is fourth in SP8.
