Ditting in DBR9 GT1 for new series
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.
