Hot on the heels of the Gulf Oil Ford GT40 comes news from Aston Martin that they will be racing their GT1 Le Mans cars in the distinctive orange and blue colours. Two DBR9s will be painted to celebrate Gulf Oil’s first victory at the 24 hour race 40 years on.

The two Aston Martin DBR9s for 2008 will be entered as numbers 007 and 009 and will be defending their class title. It’s also likely the companies will continue the partnership for future races.
