Aston Martin has announced that it will commit to the FIA World Endurance Championship for a further five year, following a championship-winning season for the British manufacturer.

The announcement, made on Tuesday at the Geneva International Motor Show, takes Aston Martin’s presence in the WEC through to 2021.

Aston Martin Racing has been a part of the series since its inception in 2012, and last year won the GT Drivers’ title with Nicki Thiim and Marco Sorensen. 

The team’s drivers for this season were announced last month, with Thiim and Sorensen sharing the No. 95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE with Jonny Adam and Darren Turner in the No. 97 car, both competing in GTE-Pro.

Paul Dalla Lana, Pedro Lamy and Mathias Lauda will remain in the No. 98 GTE-Am car, following a successful season which saw the trio take five class wins.

Over the past five years in the series, AMR has secured 31 class wins, including eight last season.
