Young Driver AMR leads Team World Championship before final round

06.11.2016 - GTE

 

Marco Sørensen and Nicki Thiim extended their GTE Pro class championship lead in the penultimate round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) in Shanghai/China. The two Young Drivers finished fourth in class in the eight of nine rounds of the World Championship in the Aston Martin Racing entered Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage V8. The Danish Duo further extended their lead in the Drivers World Championship when they finished ahead of their closest championship contenders in a Ferrari. Before final race of the season in less then two weeks time in Bahrain, Sørensen/Thiim lead the GT Drivers World Championship by 12 points. Young Driver AMR leads the GTE Pro Team World Championship by a margin of two points ahead of the final 6-hour race of the season.
 
Sørensen/Thiim started from third position on the grid into Sundays 6 Hours of Shanghai and dropped to fourth in the opening laps after a fight with the #51 Ferrari. The battle with the Italian car for third place continued in the second and third hour of the race, before Sørensen/Thiim settled for fourth place and eventually brought the Aston Martin to the chequered flag in this position and extended their championship by another two points. Young Driver AMR maintained the lead in the GTE Pro Team World Championship with the 12 points the team earned for fourth place.
 
“We archived the maximum today with fourth pace”, said Young Driver AMR´s Jan Struve. “I’m really proud of the drivers and the team, as everybody did a perfect job and here in China we performed the best quickest pit stops we had all year, our stopps were are among the quickest in class. We were a bit lucky today and could extend our championship lead. But nevertheless, the final round in Bahrain will be a difficult race and very exciting, even if Marco and Nicki lead the championship by twelve points.”
 
Thiim said: „That really went as planned. We mainly wanted to beat the #71 Ferrari and that’s what we did. It’s perfect for us in the GT Drivers Championship going into the final round. It’s been an intense weekend and you definitely feel like the end is getting closer. This championship is just something special right now, but I am glad that it’s only two weeks to go until the next race as I just want to get back to it and fight hard for the title”.

Aston Martin Racing dominated the GTE qualifying session at the Circuit of the Americas. The British brand secured both GTE-Pro and GTE-Am pole positions with their factory run Vantages.

Works drivers Marco Sørensen and Nicki Thiim were the quickest of the field and set the best average time of 2:04.610 at the wheel of the #95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE from Young Driver AMR.

The car was good and it had good balance. The track was a bit slower than this morning for us and we didn’t manage to match the same lap time. It was a bit more difficult but it was the same for everybody. I managed to do a good lap and Paul did a fantastic lap time and that is why we are on pole.

ASTON MARTIN AND RED BULL RACING UNVEIL RADICAL AM-RB 001 HYPERCAR

via astonmartin.com

5 July 2016, Gaydon, England: Aston Martin and Red Bull Racing are today revealing their ground-breaking hypercar; codenamed AM-RB 001. 

The product of a unique Innovation Partnership between the British luxury brand and eminent F1TM team, this ambitious, uncompromising and wholly extraordinary collaboration combines the vision and skills of two world-leading brands to create a road car the like of which has never been seen before.

The three men charged with realising this shared vision are Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer and the world’s most successful F1TM designer, Marek Reichman, Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer and David King, VP and Chief Special Operations Officer. Together they spearhead a formidable alliance. One that combines more than a hundred years of specialism – both with heritage, making some of the world’s most beautiful and charismatic GT cars, and with technological brilliance and relentless pursuit of speed and efficiency that has seen Red Bull Racing excel in the ferociously competitive world of Formula One.   

Reichman and Newey are working closely on all aspects of the project, striving to ensure the AM-RB 001 is an unprecedented fusion of form and function: a car engineered to be entirely useable and enjoyable as a road car, but with the capability to perform like no road car before it on a race track. For those who crave an even more intensely focused driving experience, a track-only AM-RB 001 is also in development, the projected performance of which is in line with that of today’s LMP1 Le Mans sports prototypes.

Built around a lightweight carbon fibre structure, the AM-RB 001 boasts truly radical aerodynamics for unprecedented levels of downforce in a road-legal car. Thanks to the genius of Newey’s design much of this downforce is generated through underfloor aerodynamics, leaving Reichman free to craft a pure yet breathtaking dramatic form that elegantly expresses both the AM-RB 001’s cutting-edge dynamism and the unmistakable essence of Aston Martin. 

Uncompromising in all respects, the AM-RB 001 is a bespoke machine from the tyres up. It will be built by David King and his team at Gaydon, in the purpose-built facility created for Aston Martin’s original hypercar, the One-77. More details of the AM-RB 001‘s technical specification will be revealed in due course, but its heart is a new, mid-mounted, high-revving, naturally aspirated V12 engine with the potency to achieve a 1:1 power-to-weight ratio; 1 bhp per kilo of weight. 

To cope with the extreme aerodynamic loadings at high speeds yet deliver the on-road usability and comfort levels that sit at the heart of the concept, the AM-RB 001’s suspension system will feature innovative technology and employ principles honed by Newey over his thirty year career. Likewise, the transmission is a clean-sheet design conceived by Newey and developed by Red Bull Advanced Technologies. 

While boundary-pushing performance is clearly of paramount importance, so too is exceptional efficiency and packaging. Newey’s unrivalled knowledge has enabled the AM-RB 001 to be extremely light and compact, yet offer genuine comfort and space for driver and passenger and house a V12 engine.

Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer, says of the AM-RB 001 project: “I’ve long harboured the desire to design a road car. The formation of Red Bull Advanced Technologies brought me a step closer to realising that ambition, but I believed we should work with an automotive manufacturer. Aston Martin was at the top of my list. The synergy between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin is clear. I knew Red Bull Racing had the ability to handle the pure performance aspects, but Aston Martin’s experience of making beautiful, fast and comfortable GT cars is of great benefit to the project. I’ve always been adamant that the AM-RB 001 should be a true road car that’s also capable of extreme performance on track, and this means it really has to be a car of two characters. That’s the secret we’re trying to put into this car - the technology that allows it to be docile and comfortable, but with immense outright capabilities”.

David King, Aston Martin’s VP and Chief Special Operations Officer, adds: “Working at Aston Martin means you get to be a part of some truly special projects, but the AM-RB 001 is a dream - a true once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Of course it’s a huge engineering challenge, too, but the game-changing objectives of this programme have a uniquely energising effect on everyone involved. We have world-class people and facilities at Gaydon. We’re all motivated to achieve great things and take Aston Martin to the absolute pinnacle of road car performance”.

Marek Reichman, Aston Martin’s Chief Creative Officer, says of the AM-RB 001: “Working so closely alongside Adrian and an organisation like Red Bull Racing is a fabulous experience. By definition the objectives we’ve set for the car ensures there has never been an Aston Martin - or any car, actually - quite like the AM-RB 001. The shared challenge has been finding that magical tipping point where we achieve the most efficient engineering solutions and the most beautiful styling solutions without any compromises. My personal challenge has been expressing the AM-RB 001’s extraordinary performance and the unique way in which it delivers that performance. Its style reflects its revolutionary nature, while possessing the form and beauty that makes it unmistakably an Aston Martin”.

Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin President and CEO, commented: “The AM-RB 001 is a truly remarkable project and something of which I’m extremely proud. To have Aston Martin working alongside Adrian Newey, Red Bull Racing and the invaluable assistance of project partner AF Racing AG is an extraordinary creative collaboration. One that unites the very best of road and race car thinking. As the project gathers pace its clear the end result will be a truly history-making hypercar that sets incredible new benchmarks for packaging, efficiency and performance and an achievement that elevates Aston Martin to the very highest level”.  

Christian Horner, Team Principal, Red Bull Racing said: “Red Bull Racing has always steered an innovative course in our ongoing development of a competitive Formula One car. The conception and modus operandi of Red Bull Technologies has been to apply our expertise to truly progressive projects and partnerships. Our relationship with Aston Martin and the realisation of the AM-RB 001 is pioneering and borne of our synergies and desire to break new ground. The AM-RB 001 is the inspirational product of this collaborative spirit.”

Continuing the on-going Innovation Partnership, the task of engineering the AM-RB 001 will be shared between Q by Aston Martin Advanced and Red Bull Advanced Technologies, with production taking place at Aston Martin’s Gaydon facility. Total volume will be between 99 and 150 road cars inclusive of all remaining prototypes and 25 track-only versions, with first deliveries commencing in 2018.

Interview: Copenhagen Post

Interview: Copenhagen Post


A very British car company famous for luxury, class and being the go-to transport for James Bond. A little town in France and the roads around it. And a Danish sportsman who's keeping motorsport in the family. Not much links them, right? Wrong. 

The company is Aston Martin - started by an eccentric British entrepreneur, funded by a Lady of the aristocracy and partly named after a hillclimb in the rolling English countryside. The Danish sportsman is Nicki Thiim, who stepped into Aston Martin following the tragic death of compatriot Allan Simonsen and whose father Kurt was a very successful touring car driver. And the little French town – Le Mans. Two words that make up the world's greatest race. Flying through forests and on public roads closed for the event, drivers race twice around the clock on a narrow circuit at huge speed. Nearby villages – Arnage, Mulsanne – give their names to corners at this legendary track. The irresistible lure of headlights through the trees at night, of the history of a race that's happened since 1923 and captivated stars such as Steve McQueen and Paul Newman, and the challenge of racing flat-out for 24 hours brings fans, teams and drivers from all over the world. 

Recently, however, the success of John Nielsen in the mad, fire-spitting Jaguars of the 1980s, Tom Kristensen's record 9 wins since 1999 and Jan Magnussen's repeat appearances in ground-shaking bright yellow Corvettes has attracted ever-increasing numbers of Danish fans. Before this year's race, The Copenhagen Post sent Weekly Post journalist Joe Morel to France to explain just how special this race is, and why Denmark loves it so much. He found Nicki, and this is the result. 


So, Nicki, Le Mans is one of the biggest, if not the biggest, international sporting event for Denmark. As a Danish driver, how do the famous fans and increased attention from home change the feeling of Le Mans compared to other races?

Yes of course, le Mans is the highlight of the year, especially for us at Aston Martin. On top of that there are between 30-40,000 Danish fans here every year! Every year we visit the fan camps and meet our fellow Danes. Seeing all the flags and fans really makes you realize every time how massive the Danish fanbase and passion is at Le Mans. When you’re wearing your helmet, driving the car out there and you see the Danish flags and banners… this really makes me happy. 

Le Mans is more like a week-long festival that finishes with an endurance race. What are your favourite parts of the week?

I would say my favourite part is the whole week! It builds up every day, it gets more and more intense… more meetings, more important stuff to do. We're on track Wednesday and Thursday for practice and qualifying, and it really heats up there. Friday is the calm before the storm on Saturday – when the main event starts. It's hard to say what my favorite part is because there are so many awesome things going on. 

What's your best memory of Le Mans?

Definitely my first Le Mans race in 2014 so far. To get there, where everything was an unknown and then to win at your first race at Le Mans is really impossible to beat. I don’t think I will ever be able to beat that one. 

You race in the top GT class at the world's greatest race. It's you against the best GTE drivers in the world, Aston Martin Racing against the world's best manufacturers. How do you rate your chances this year, and what do you expect to happen? 

Difficult question. I can tell you that on Saturday evening when we know where we are, because everyone is holding back on their full potential until the main race. But I'm definitely sure we can keep with the pace of the top guys. 24 hours is a long time.. We have a great car, a fantastic team and a lot of experience. 

Aston Martin Racing has a recent and successful history with the fan favourite 'Dane Train' car. What's it like being part of that car's crew, and do you have any particularly Danish approaches or moments? 

The #95 Dane Train has a fantastic chemistry. Marco and I especially have a great relationship with each other. That's something very important when you are travelling around the world and spend so much time racing and working together.

Darren Turner's being made an 'honorary Dane' by the media - are you making him fit in by teaching him 'rødgrød med fløde', getting him to ride a bicycle everywhere, dressing him in black etc?

Darren is one of the best drivers I’ve shared a car with. Experience is key in endurance racing and Darren, 'Mr Aston Martin', has a lot of it. We still have to work hard every day though - he really is the perfect guy for this team and I'm happy that he’s a part of it. After the race we have more time to make him a proper Dane and have fun. Now we are fully focused on the big race.

John Nielsen and Tom Kristensen began the love of Le Mans in Denmark, and Jan Magnussen keeps it up now. How does that support young Danes coming through the ranks and aiming to continue the Danish story at Le Mans?

Of course that's something you get to hear a lot. I respect both John and Tom and their achievements. I know there are some people out there that try to use their legacy for their own personal advantage. Still, I'm not here because of them. Inspired by my father Kurt, I've worked very hard from a very young age to get here. I'm where I am because I had to prove myself in many different classes and cars over the years.

  • Sørensen/Thiim/Turner finish fifth in the GTE Pro class
  • Trouble free and flawless race for Young Driver AMR
  • Aston Martin Racing takes lead in manufacturers world championship

Le Mans/France. 
Young Driver AMR was rewarded with a big haul of championship points in a almost flawless race at this year’s 24 hours of Le Mans. Marco Sørensen, Nicki Thiim and Darren Turner finished fifth in the highly competitive GTE Pro class in the Aston Martin Racing entered #95 Young Driver AMR-Aston Martin Vantage GTE. The Top-Five finish rewarded Young Driver AMR with big points in the FIA World Endurance Championship. As the first three cars in class were not eligible for World Championship points, the Young Driver trio claimed 36 points and moved up to third position in the driver’s world championship ranks. The strong result of Sørensen/Thiim/Turner also helped Aston Martin Racing to claim the lead in the GT manufacturers world championship.
 
Young Driver AMR experienced an almost trouble free race in it’s fifth participation in the world most important endurance race with it’s quick and reliable Aston Martin. After starting ninth of the GTE Pro grid, the #95 Aston Martin soon moved the order and was in strong fourth place, when the car lost one position due to a puncture caused by debris on the track. Sørensen/Thiim/Turner then brought the Aston Martin to the chequered flag in fifth place and finished one lap behind the class winner.

„The entire team, the drivers, engineers and mechanics did a perfect job", Jan Struve of Young Driver AMR said. "Beside a puncture we had a trouble free over the 24 hours, this does me very proud. The fact that we form such a strong team was the key to claim a fifth place in this race. We didn’t take any unnecessary in the race, as we knew that we couldn’t fight for the victory in terms of outright speed. Beside our great result, we also won the internal Danish championship and beat Jan Magnussens Corvette and Michael Christensen’s Porsche.”

Marco Sørensen: „I’m quite satisfied with the performance of the entire team. My stints were very good and my teammates Nicki und Darren were also very quick. It’s really great to see that we form such a very strong trio. To make to the finish at Le Mans is always something special and with the good amount of points that we scored, Aston Martin took the lead in the manufacturers world championship. We had a clean race but were lacking a bit pace. I hope this issue will be addressed for the next World Championship round at the Nürburgring in about four weeks.“

Nicki Thiim: “If you coming to Le Mans, the goal is always to win your class. This year, we already knew before, that the race would very tough for us, as we are lacking power compared to our competitors. We had to accept this fact. Nevertheless we had a perfect storm and scored good points for the championship. The fact, that didn’t finish on the podium despite our flawless performance showed how competitive Le Mans was this year. We made the best out of it, so eventually I’m satisfied with the result.“
 
Darren Turner: „Everybody in the team did a perfect job. Nicki and Marco drove a fantastic race and also our strategy was spot on. The start of the race was difficult in severe weather conditions, but we coped with that. The sole problem during the race was a puncture. Unfortunately that happened very early in that lap, so I had to drive a long distance back to the pits at a very slow speed. At the end I’m satisfied wit the fifth position. Aston Martin took the lead in the manufacturers championship and we have a solid base for the second part of the season.”
 
The next of the FIA World Endurance Championship will take place on 24 July at Nürburgring in Germany.
