In honor of Aston Martins 110th anniversary, 110 Aston Martins, spanning more than 11 decades, took to the Silverstone race track during the British Grand Prix Formula 1 race weekend. The parade laps at the Silverstone Circuit set a new record for the most Aston Martins on a race track at one time.
Silverstone, located about 90 minutes North-West of London, is the home of the new state-of-the-art 400,000 square foot Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula 1 Team Technology Campus. Aston Martin’s F1 team is in 3rd place in the constructors standings. Their drivers, Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll are 3rd and 8th respectively in the drivers’ standings.
Among the 110 cars was an Aston Martin A3 which is more than a century old and the oldest surviving Aston Martin. Also in the field was a DB3S driven by Sir Stirling Moss, a DB5 made famous by 007’s James Bond, a Valkyrie hypercar, the recently launched DB12 Super Tourer and a DBX707, the fastest SUV in the world and the official FIA medical car. Joining them were individual owners from around the world who brought their own cars to participate in this celebration.
“We promised that 2023, Aston Martin’s 110th anniversary year, would be a monumental one for the brand”Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin
“Not only did we set out to introduce our highly anticipated next generation of sports cars, but we also made a pledge to create memorable moments for our owners, enthusiasts, and colleagues across the world, to celebrate this significant moment in Aston Martin’s history. In a season where Aston Martin has risen to become a new force in Formula One, there is no place or time more fitting for our celebrations to take centre stage than here at our home race at Silverstone where we’ll receive huge support this weekend.”
