Friday Photo – 2014 Le Mans Aston Martin GTE Am

Although Le Mans is almost a week in the past, and we’d promised no more pictures, we wanted to include just one more as part of our Friday Photo.

2014 Le Mans #95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE AM 01

Le Mans 2013 was overshadowed by the tragic death of Dane Allan Simonsen, following a crash at Tertre Rouge early on in the race. The crash was so violent that it buckled the roof and roll cage of the number 95 Aston Martin Vantage GTE and, despite the best efforts of the medical teams, Simonsen died at the on-site medical centre.

Fast forward to Le Mans 2014, and the #95 Aston Martin Vantage of fellow Danes Nicki Thiim, Kristian Poulsen and David Heinemeier Hansson took the GTE Am class win. A fitting tribute to their countryman, and a reminder to never give up trying. For that we salute the spirit of the Aston Martin Racing Young Driver Team, and the memory of Allan Simonsen.
