The year is 1950.
Aston Martin went back to the Le Mans 24 Hours with three DB2’s, finishing 5th and 6th overall.
The team stayed at Hotel Moderne in town and would only move to the famous Hotel de France at La-Chartre-sur-le-Loir a few years later.
In the same year, Aston Martin employed John Wyer, who would become General Manager and would stay 10 years with the company.
Two apparently unconnected facts in that year.
However, the DB2 drophead prototype also launched in the same year connects the two events...
1- Here she is in the same year, still without a bonnet vent, parked on the street outside the Hotel Moderne.
2- And again in the same year, being driven by John Wyer at Prescott Hill.
A car that is part of AML history…
