Aston Martin Racing will attack the GTE classes of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2020 with three ultra-competitive line-ups, after announcing British endurance aces Harry Tincknell and Richard Westbrook will complete its GTE Pro roster for this year’s French classic.
THE RICHARD’S WORDS
“I think for anyone, racing for Aston Martin is something you can be extremely proud of but being British makes it that little bit more special, Aston Martin Racing is leading the world championship, and they are an elite team, with the best quality engineers and mechanics all the way through. And the car is really singing on top note right now, so it’s a good time to be joining. I know I am going to fit right in, and that is really important at a race like Le Mans.”Richard Westbrook
THE HARRY’S WORDS
“I’m really looking forward to it,” said Tincknell. “Growing up, Aston Martin was one of the cars you would always dream about. Now I’m racing for this brand that I have been watching since I was a kid. There is a massive heritage and to be a small part of that, I have to pinch myself a little bit that it’s coming true.”Harry Tincknell
THE PRESIDENT’S WORDS
Every team wants to put itself in the strongest position to be competitive for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and signing Harry and Richard is a big step in that direction. Harry is racing and winning at the sharp end of all forms of top-level endurance racing and we know his standard is high from racing against him directly in the FIA WEC for the past four years. Richard has been a proven force at the top level of GT racing for a number of years and his speed and experience is perfect for the ‘Dane Train’ at Le Mans.David King – Aston Martin Racing President
