DBR1

(1956 - 1959)

The DBR1, arguably the most successful racing Aston Martin ever, was designed as a replacement for the DB3S. The similarity between the two cars is evident in the above photograph. Changes in the rules concerning sports car racing permitted the DBR1 to be a pure racing car with no relationship to a road car design.

Although the car was first raced (unsuccessfully) at Le Mans in 1956 retiring during the 21st hour, success followed during the next three years. Many famous victories were secured by works DBR1′s at the Spa Sportscar Race (1957, Tony Brooks), Goodwood Tourist Trophy (1958, Sterling Moss, Tony Brookes, 1959, Stirling Moss, Carrol Shelby, Jack Fairman) and the 1000 Km at the Nurburgring (1959, Sterling Moss and Jack Fairman), although non so famous at the 1st and 2nd place at Le Mans in 1959. Aston Martin went on to win the 1959 World Sportscar Championship with the DBR1.

The car pictured here, both above (main shot) and below is the second of the four works cars (DBR1/2) and when driven by Roy Salvadori and Carrol Shelby was the actual Le Mans winning car. I photographed it during the Brands Hatch AMOC meeting in 2002, the British Empire Trophy Meeting at Silverstone , May 1999 and at Le Mans for the 40th anniversary celebrations of the 1959 win. It is probably the most precious Aston Martin ever made and yet it is a frequent and welcome sight at classic race meetings.
