Aston Martin Racing will start the inaugural FIA World Endurance Championship(WEC) Six Hours of Circuit of the Americas from the front of the GTE Pro grid this morning (22 September) with the #99 Vantage GTE, thanks to an impressive qualifying session from Bruno Senna (BR) and Fred Makowiecki (FR). In the 25-minute session, the #99 Vantage GTE and its sister car, the #98, swapped places at the top of the table several times, but it was the Northwest and Valero-liveried #99 that came out on top with an average lap time of 2:04.628.


The #98, driven in the session by Pedro Lamy (PT) and Richie Stanaway (NZ), eventually qualified in third position and it was the 21-year old New Zealander who recorded the fastest GTE lap of the day – 2:04.014 – to take the car’s average lap time down to 2:04.919. Team-mate Paul Dalla Lana (CN) will take the start in today’s race. Darren Turner (GB) and his new team-mate for this weekend only, Oliver Gavin (GB), qualified in sixth in the GTE Pro class 0.6s behind pole position.
