Yesterday, Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca was the host for Aston Martin Racing’s return in American Le Mans Series. Great event considering that after so long, AMR with drivers Adrian Fernandez, Stefan Mucke and Harold Primat taking the Gulf-liveried Lola-Aston Martin to a three-lap victory in the six-hour California enduro finished on the first place.
These three drivers raced all day against Lola-Mazdas fielded by Dyson Racing and Oryx Dyson Racing, as well as the Lola-Aston Martin fielded by Muscle Milk Aston Martin Racing.
“It has been a difficult year for all of us with the new car at Aston Martin. It was nice to come back with the older car and know it’s reliable,” said Fernandez.
“This is only Harold and myself, our 2nd race with the car, so the next at Petit will be important for us. The racing in the ALMS right now is fantastic racing. The Mazdas and the Muscle Milk car were really competitive and I think we were all really pushing close up until the last 30 minutes or so.”
After three and a half hours Muscle Milk Aston Martin Racing went behind the wall to replace a fuel pump, this way Dyson Racing’s P1 title being unofficially confirmed.
“This is an absolutely fantastic result for the whole team. It is a great feeling to be standing back on the top step of the podium and the whole team should be proud of today’s result. Everyone has worked extremely hard to keep improving the car step by step and today’s victory is testimony to all that effort.”
