Chris Harris is one of only a handful of motoring journalists with a proper racing license. In fact, if they band motoring journalism tomorrow he will be able to make his bread as a full-time racer, and will probably enjoy it a lot more than he does his current day job. Here’s a taste of what Chris will be driving at this year’s Nurburgring 24h race.
Chris Harris will be part of an Aston Martin Racing GT3 team that fields a V12 Vantage. Check out the car, along with some other hot metals like the Bentley GT3 and the new Audi R8 LM, in this teaser:
Ahead of the Nurburging 24 Hours, an Aston Martin Customer Parade Lap comprising 40 cars will take place. The event, celebrating 10 years of Aston Martin racing at the Nürburgring will be led by Non-Executive Chairman Dr Ulrich Bez in ‘Rose’, Aston Martin’s N24 debut race car from 2006. In addition, Aston Martin’s CEO Dr Andy Palmer will drive a new Vantage GT12 to mark the launch of the brand’s most focused sports car.
