Strakka will be unveiling a striking new livery for the DBR9 at Silverstone, with glossy black paintwork contrasting strongly with white lettering and prominent Relentless branding, according to Planet Le Mans.

In other words they haven't repainted the car since it raced at Le Mans.

Relentless?

What, like relentless whining (from everyone else) that their Aston is slower than the others?


I hope it's very black- the original Phoenix one was MEGA in all black.

Hopefully!

I love black racecars, and I think that it would look cool with an allblack livery.

I think it would be good if they didn't paint it (apart from the bits that aren't CF) and it was just carbon fibre.

Now pictured on DSC- and yes, it's very black, just relieved by the sponsors logos and a white band around the nose intake. Turner confirmed as third driver, although DSC think Simonsen will be in Strakka's BMW at the Britcar 24 hours

Strakka were at Snett last week testing both cars - the Aston and BMW - you are right its very black!
Have not been to the 1000km for several years but will be going this year with my young son to give him his first taste of LMS racing.
Was sorting out some boxes in my loft the other day and found a lot of photo's from the 70's Sliverstone Endurance racing - Jacky Ickx in the Martini Porsche 935, Ronnie Peterson in the BMW etc - those were the days !!!
But I must admit I looking forward to seeing the LMP1 cars in full song !!

Does that mean you'll have seen 24 hours of racing?

Not sure if I will be there yet, I have another commitment on Saturday night.

What? You mean risk not having the car ready for qualifying or the race?

Not quite , I do appreciate timetables , I work on airplanes and we work to strict timetables every day , but also I am not a monkey to be put on exhibition . People should understand that too .

I look in the garages , from the outside and "never" get in the way of the folks who are doing the job . Its just a show of respect is all .

Yes, but with all this f***ing walls in the back of the garage you see nothing else than the wall if you are not allowed to walk in the pit lane.

I will never forget the races in Spa 2004 or so in the old pit building. Nobody was able to use wall due to lack of space
