This is arguably the most important year ever for Gulf Oil in motorsport history as the famous Gulf racing colours first tasted victory at Le Mans in 1968. 2008 will prove to be a great significance for Gulf Oil with the joining up with Aston Martin Racing. The two Aston Martin DBR9s for 2008 will be entered as numbers 007 and 009.
