Aston Martin Racing to sit out Spa-Francorchamps

Aston Martin Racing has made the decision not to contest the 1000km of Spa Francorchamps, the second round of the 2011 Intercontinental Le Mans Cup to be held on the 7th of May, but instead to focus on the ongoing AMR-One testing and development programme.

The ground up developed AMR-One, Aston Martin’s new LMP1 prototype racer which features a new turbo-charged direct injection 2.0 litre straight six petrol engine experienced difficulties at the Le Mans Test Day. David Richards, Aston Martin Racing Chairman said: “We could go to the Spa 1000km race in May, but this race meeting will set an agenda for us that doesn’t allow us to achieve what we need to accomplish. We need to complete our testing at our own pace including engine, aero and long distance tests."
