Aston Martin Racing has confirmed a return to the Nürburgring 24 this year with a pair of V12 Vantage GT3s.

The factory entered cars will be driven by the British manufacturer’s FIA World Endurance Championship drivers, with Richie Stanaway, Jonny Adam, Fernando Rees and Mathias Lauda in the No. 006 entry and Nicki Thiim, Marco Sorensen, Darren Turner and Pedro Lamy in the No. 007 car.

Both cars will be Dunlop-shod, as part of its new partnership with the tire manufacturer that will also extend into the WEC this year.

The announcement comes on the heels of confirmation of its three-car WEC program, which was also made Friday.
