Aston Martin DB2

This photograph was taken at the Aston Martin Owners Club meeting at Oulton Park in May 2002. It's a 1950 Aston Martin DB2, one of three cars which were built to take part in the 1950 Le Mans 24 hour race. Unfortunately it didn't take part in that race because of an accident en route to the circuit and this Bonhams website describes the history of the car when it was offered for auction in 2010. It was raced at the Oulton Park meeting by the then owner, Oliver Leyba of Hamburg, who is shown in action below at Lodge Corner.
