Aston Martin scored a major motor sports victory in 1959, having cars secure both first and second place in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France. Both vehicles were DBR1s and only five were built between 1956 and 1959. The Le Mans race was challenging in '59, with stiff competition coming from both Ferrari and Porsche. In the end, it was drivers Roya Salvadori and a good old country boy from Texas by the name of Carroll Shelby who ended up in the winner's circle. With such a storied legacy, an Aston Martin dealer in Cambridge, England, has commissioned a limited run of vehicles to celebrate that 1959 triumph. They'll be called DBS 59s, built using Aston's fastest model: the 715-horsepower, 2018 DBS Superleggera, capable of hitting 211 mph. Only 24 will be made, one for every hour of the endurance race. The cars will draw influence from their retro race-car predecessors, most notably in their Aston Martin "Racing Green" paint. Daily Herald.

Ascot Park. Dan Mahony photo. I loved this Raceway! The best half-Mile track ever. After I stopped racing, my buddies and I would go to watch the races every Friday night during racing season. supercross #eddielawson #waynerainey #randymamola #motogp #motorcycle #motorcycleracing #motoguzzi #yamaha #suzuki #kawasaki #ducati #mvagusta #harleydavidson #indianmotorcycle #ascot #aprillia #kennyroberts #moto2 #moto3  #agv #motorcyclesofinstagram #americanflattrack #flattrack #hondamotorcycles #fim #sbk #isleofman #cagiva #aprilia

After the Quail Motorcycle Show we picked up a few bikes which Robert will restore. 500cc Honda in a Knight Frame is incredible but needs some care. It’ll get done and will be raced again. #supercross #eddielawson #waynerainey #randymamola #motogp #motorcycle #motorcycleracing #motoguzzi #yamaha #suzuki #kawasaki #ducati #mvagusta #harleydavidson #indianmotorcycle #ascot #aprillia #kennyroberts #moto2 #moto3  #agv #motorcyclesofinstagram #americanflattrack #flattrack #hondamotorcycles #fim #sbk #isleofman #cagiva #aprilia

Aston Martin is looking to build on its racing success, announcing two additional motorsport versions of its new Vantage ahead of a reveal later this year. Following the Vantage GTE race car, the Vantage GT3 (pictured) and GT4 will aim to build on the success of the company's successful previous-generation competition racers - the V12 Vantage GT3 and V8 Vantage GT4. carsdvice. #carshow #carshows #racecar #carrace #astonmarton #racing #db4 #db4gt #zagato #vantage #vanquish #vanquishzagato #db5  #db9 #blacklist #db11 #db11v8 #v12 #carsofinstagram #astonmartinvantage #astonmartinvulcan #astonmartinvanquish  #vantage #carsandcoffee #pebblebeachconcoursedeelegance #dbr1 #v12zagato #ferrari

Sideways with Dorothy Rowe right behind me at The old Perris Raceway. This track was in a dry riverbed and usually got very rutted and extremely difficult to slide without high siding. #supercross #eddielawson #waynerainey #randymamola #motogp #motorcycle #motorcycleracing #motoguzzi #yamaha #suzuki #kawasaki #ducati #mvagusta #harleydavidson #indianmotorcycle #ascot #aprillia #kennyroberts #moto2 #moto3  #agv #motorcyclesofinstagram #americanflattrack #flattrack #hondamotorcycles #fim #sbk #isleofman #cagiva #aprilia

Engine And Performance: Small Increase For Big Gains Bottom line, mechanical updates from DB11 into AMR are pretty minor but put some ground between the impressive V8 version and its senior (and considerably more expensive) brother. Torque from the 5.2-liter, twin-turbocharged V12 stays the same at 516 lb-ft but there’s been a small uplift in power from the previous 600 horsepower to 630. Doesn’t sound a whole lot but it makes a big difference to the character of the car. Over 0-62mph it’s still not that startling, the V8 recording 4.0 seconds dead while the new AMR chops a couple of tenths off the original V12’s time and covers it in just 3.7 seconds. Top speed is where the extra grunt really counts though, the V8 topping out at ‘just’ 187 mph while the AMR powers on to 208 mph. #carshow #carshows #racecar #carrace #astonmarton #racing #db4 #db4gt #zagato #vantage #vanquish #vanquishzagato #db5  #db9 #db11 #db11v8 #v12 #carsofinstagram #blacklist #astonmartinvantage #astonmartinvulcan #astonmartinvanquish  #vantage #carsandcoffee #pebblebeachconcoursedeelegance #dbr1 #v12zagato

The Drive. Two years ago, Aston Martin announced that its Works historical division would build 25 continuation cars of the motorsport-focused DB4 GT. For $1.9 million, buyers got a modernized version of the GT, as well as an invitation to a driving program that would help them hone their skills in these vintage race cars. Aston Martin held its first track day this past weekend at the Silverstone Circuit in England. The five drivers received extensive training from a team of Aston Martin instructors, who taught the new owners how to master their vintage, track-only toys. The Silverstone participants also got special guidance from Darren Turner, a class winner at Le Mans three times racing for Aston Martin and a key developer and tester of the Continuation project. Saying that these owners were in good hands while they lapped one of Britain's wildest race tracks would be an understatement. #carshow #carshows #racecar #carrace #racing #db4 #db4gt #zagato #vantage #vanquish #vanquishzagato #db5  #db9 #db11 #db11v8 #v12 #carsofinstagram #astonmartinvantage #astonmartinvulcan #astonmartinvanquish  #vantage #blacklist #carsandcoffee #pebblebeachconcoursedeelegance #dbr1 #v12zagato #ferrari

Shawn McConnell racing a very rare 32 Indian Flat Tracker. Down to the cases. Taking a break from Speedway racing, Shawn is enjoying himself loving all things - two wheels. #supercross #eddielawson #waynerainey #randymamola #motogp #motorcycle #motorcycleracing #motoguzzi #yamaha #suzuki #kawasaki #ducati #mvagusta #harleydavidson #indianmotorcycle #ascot #aprillia #kennyroberts #moto2 #moto3  #agv #motorcyclesofinstagram #americanflattrack #flattrack #hondamotorcycles #fim #sbk #isleofman #cagiva #aprilia
