Aston Martin begins 110th anniversary year with one-two victory in Rolex 24 at Daytona

Aston Martin’s multiple championship-winning Vantage has added another glittering accolade to its growing legacy as one of the sport’s most successful GT cars by recording an emphatic class victory in the 61st Rolex 24 at Daytona on Sunday.

A faultless performance by reigning IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar GTD class champions Heart of Racing [HOR] and drivers Roman De Angelis (CDN), Ian James (GBR), Darren Turner (GBR) and Marco Sørensen (DEN), underlined a winning start to the team’s title defense for the Seattle-based Aston Martin Racing partner team.

The win is Aston Martin’s first in the Daytona 24 Hours – North America’s most prestigious endurance event – in its 12th attempt since its debut in 1964, and marks the perfect opening to the British ultra-luxury sportscar brand’s sporting season in its 110th anniversary year
