Our support team returned to Silverstone yet again this month, this time for the BRDC track day. All shapes, sizes and ages of machine were out on track, and proudly the only representatives of the pre-war era were a trio of Aston Martins.
On track were two Speed Models - one checking out a new gearbox ratio - and an Ulster post-engine rebuild. We were then delighted to meet up with current Aston Martin Works driver Darren Turner who tried out a Speed Model for size. No flappy-paddle gear levers here - and plenty of drifting too! Darren soon got to grips with the crash gearbox and elected to gear-change without the clutch at all. He returned to the pits with a big grin having had a ton of fun.
What a difference in racing development Aston Martin have made over 80 years. Darren is a really down to earth and friendly guy. We look forward to more fun like this.
