Aston Martin DBR1 is the only Le Mans winner of the brand. The car can brag with a good list of notable drivers behind its wheel - Sir Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, Jim Clark and Caroll Shelby to name a few.

Aston Martin DBR1 leaves a trace in racing history with eight wins, including 1959 Le Mans. The car benefits a lot from recent changes in the rules of sports car racing. No longer entrants have to be street legal or be based on street legal cars. This makes room for dedicated racers designed from scratch. Aston Martin takes the most out of the situation with lighter chassis and body shell and also an excellent engine. This is the last work of W.O. Bentley for Lagonda.

The car is extremely fast and sets many track records. Unfortunately, it has an unreliable transmission. A sudden change in the regulations at the end of the 1957 season limits the engine displacement to 3-litres for sports prototypes. This perfectly suits Aston`s DBR1. These changes make Jaguar D-Type, Maserati 450S and Lister-Jaguar Special obsolete.

In 1959 Aston Martin DBR1 wins Le Mans with Caroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori behind the wheel. Second place is for Maurice Trintignant and Paul Frere who drive a DBR1 too. This 1-2 positioning is the top achievement of Aston Martin`s racing program and credits the brand with a well-deserved place in racing history.
