Dit­ting in DBR9 GT1 for new se­ries

Autosport (UK) - - CLUB AUTOSPORT/NEWS -

GER­MAN CLAS­SIC SPORTSCAR RACER Nik Dit­ting had a first test in his re­cently pur­chased As­ton Martin DBR9 at Don­ing­ton Park last week.

Dit­ting, who has pre­vi­ously raced an Alfa Romeo GTA, Ford GT40 and Chevron B16, is plan­ning to race the car in next sea­son’s new Mas­ters En­durance Leg­ends se­ries.

Ex­pe­ri­enced sportscar racer Sam Han­cock gave the GT1 car its shake­down be­fore Dit­ting took over.

The car is be­ing run by Tim Samways, who has also tended it dur­ing its stay in a pri­vate col­lec­tion over the past few years. “It had been in Brazil and hardly raced – I be­lieve its last race was in 2006,” said Samways.
