The new version of Aston Martin’s race-winning Vantage GTE will make its debut in this season’s ALMS at Sebring this weekend. The revised car will also take on the World Endurance Championship (WEC) as part of a four-car campaign.

Apart from the technical revisions, the Vantage GTE also gets a new driver lineup, which includes Ayrton Senna’s nephew, Bruno Senna. The 2013-specification #97 car will be driven by long-standing factory drivers Darren Turner (GB) and Stefan Mücke (D) alongside new signing Bruno Senna (BR), while the #007 machine – built to 2012 specifications – will be driven by Aston Martin Racing newcomers Billy Johnson (US), Pedro Lamy (PT), and Paul Dalla Lana (CA).

Senna commented:  “I’m enjoying every minute. The drivers are really supportive and are helping me to understand GT racing. That includes everything from low-level things like driver changes right up to driving the car to get the most out of it. I’m looking forward to Sebring; it’s daunting but very exciting.”
