Why Aston Martin is ready to win Le Mans again

After two difficult Le Mans 24 Hours with its new Vantage, Aston Martin Racing returns for the delayed 2020 edition in good form atop the GTE Pro standings, and with designs on ending its three-year wait for sportscar racing's biggest prize

That dramatic from-behind victory at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2017 seems a long time ago now. Aston Martin notched up its most recent class victory in the French enduro more than three years ago when Jonny Adam overhauled Jordan Taylor's Chevrolet on the final lap to seal the GTE Pro win together with Darren Turner and Daniel Serra. There's been a lot of water under the bridge since.

Aston Martin Racing has produced an all-new car, the World Endurance Championship was temporarily reshaped with the one-off superseason that encompassed the 2018 and 2019 editions of Le Mans, and this year's race was pushed back into the early autumn.
