0

Three DB2 racers were reunited when Shelsley Walsh celebrated Aston Martin’s 100th anniversary at the weekend.

The cars, which included VMF65, XMC77 and XMC76, last appeared together 62 years ago during 1951 and 1952.

A timeline, 35-model parade showcasing the firm’s cars was led by LM10 and included the DBR1/2, plus a host of new models.

Also featuring in displays around the venue were past race cars such as Nimrod, AMR1, the 2011 AMR-ONE Le Mans, the DBR9 GT1 and the current GTE.

The Aston Martin Heritage Trust was also out in force with Green Pea, A3 and a current Rapide.

The venue’s next event is the Autumn Speed Finale on 21-22 September.
