Two main marques were celebrated at the show with the Aston Martin DBR1 which won Le Mans in 1959 taking pride of place. This was supplemented by the GT1 class winning DBR9 from the 2008 Le Mans race, along with a host of other racing (and rallying) Aston’s from the years inbetween.

With the iconic car celebrating it’s 50th anniversary this year there was a show of force with the past Monte Carlo Rally winners, rallycross and autocross versions alongside the various Mini’s which competed in circuit racing from the British Touring Car races of the 60’s to current single make formulas.
