Training Camp Part Deux

Friday, August 31, 2018

Many of the Aston Martin Racing driver line up, crew and team leaders are over in France again this weekend for another bout of fitness preparation and team building challenges as the World Endurance Championships approaches the first of the overseas races of their 'Super-season'.

Back at the Chateau du Peuch training establishment to the east of Bordeaux, this camp appears to be a very popular destination for those in the motorsport profession as is the same place that Aston Martin Racing used to prepare their non bronze drivers ahead of the start of the WEC season back in March.

Whilst Darren Turner is absent by virtue of having to help 'slog' the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 around the Nordschelife this weekend as part of a customer entry in the VLN Series, most if not all of the remaining WEC factory drivers are present at the camp as well as other people of note from in and out of the team.

Having just enjoyed their best results to date in the 2018-19 WEC transitional year at Silverstone two weeks ago, every effort is being made to eek out those little improvements in performance in and out of the car ahead of the next round at Fuji in another six weeks time.

Hopefully this time, Nicki Thiim will be fast enough up the hill this year to avoid being 'kidnapped'!!
