Aston Martin

Aston Martin Racing will return to Le Mans in 2008 to defend its GT1 title in the distinctive blue and orange livery of Gulf Oil. Two Aston Martin DBR9s will look to emulate Gulf's first victory at the 24 hour race 40 years on. 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.
