Aston Martin Racing has confirmed an international driver line up for the 2005 season, which begins with the 12 hours of Sebring in March and includes the Le Mans 24 Hours.
The six drivers are: David Brabham (Australia), Tomas Enge (Czech Republic), Peter Kox (Netherlands), Pedro Lamy (Portugal), Stephane Ortelli (France) and Darren Turner (UK). This line up of experienced sportscar drivers will share driving duties in the team’s two DBR9s at each of the races during 2005.
All the drivers came together for the first time on 31 January at the team’s latest test at Sebring, Florida.
"It’s great to have such a talented pool of drivers to choose from," said Aston Martin Racing team principal, George Howard-Chappell. "Having worked with most of them before, we know they will bond as a team and work together to help develop the DBR9."
Aston Martin Racing will confirm at a later date which of the contracted drivers will compete at each event during the 2005 season.
