Aston Martin Racing has completed the build of a brand-new No. 95 Vantage GTE, following Marco Sorensen’s accident in last weekend’s Le Mans Test Day.
While the Dane was uninjured, the new-generation Vantage was destroyed in the high-speed crash, sending the British manufacturer into a race to build up a new chassis.
The process, which began Sunday evening, was completed on Friday in Prodrive’s workshop in the UK when the car completed a shakedown, and is now en route to Le Mans for scrutineering.
Sorensen will be joined by Nicki Thiim and Darren Turner in the No. 95 machine, as part of the 17-strong entries in GTE-Pro.
