Aston Martin Racing Fought Back From Adversity In A Fiercely-contested Total 6 Hours Of Spa – Round 6 Of The Fia World Endurance Championship (Wec) – To Record A Hugely Competitive Double-podium In Belgium And Maintain Its Convincing Lead In The Gt Manufacturers’ And Gte Pro Drivers’ Standings.

Despite Two Torrential Rain Showers, One Of Which Forced The Race To Begin Behind The Safety Car, Three Further Safety Car Periods, Two Punctures And Several Critical Strategic Calls To Manage An Ever-changing Race, The #95 Aston Martin Vantage Gte Driven By Danish Duo Nicki Thiim And Marco Sørensen Raced Through To Second Place – Finishing Just 5.6s Behind The Gte Pro Leader.

Behind Them, In Third Position Were Their Team-mates Maxime Martin (Bel) And Alex Lynn (Gb), Who Came Within Seven Minutes Of Fuel’s-worth Of Winning The Belgian Race For The Second Year In Succession.

Aston Martin Now Leads The Gt Manufacturers’ Championship By 29 Points With 219, While Thiim And Sørensen Hold A 19-point Lead In The Drivers’ Standings. The Result Also Means That An Aston Martin Vantage Gte Has Finished On The Podium 15 Times Out Of 24 Attempts, While Least One Works Aston Martin Racing Crew Has Stood On The Podium At Every Race This Season.
