Aston Martin Racing will revert to its old Lola-based car for the remaining rounds of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup as well as the Laguna Seca and Petit Le Mans American Le Mans Series events, due to continuing issues with its new AMR-One.
The team had hoped that its latest challenger would be able to take the fight to the Peugeot and Audi diesel LMP1s, but has struggled for both speed and reliability in its only two appearances so far at the Paul Ricard Le Mans Series race and the Le Mans 24 Hours. The project is currently undergoing an external review to get to the bottom of the problems so far, which have largely centered on the engine.
After missing the last ILMC event at Imola, AMR has now committed to the Silverstone, Road Atlanta and Zhuhai rounds, plus Laguna, but will use the old Lola-Aston Martin DBR1-2 chassis. It will enter a single car in all four events, with Adrian Fernandez and Harold Primat confirmed as the first two drivers.
