Aston Martin Le Mans

This car was at the SeeRed race meeting organised by the VSCC at Donington Park in June 2008, although it wasn't competing in any of the races.
It's a 1929 Aston Martin Le Mans model, a works car originally designated LM3. The car was raced in the RAC TT at Ards in Northern Ireland where it crashed and subsequently re-bodied with a short tailed two-seater sports body and used as a works demonstrator, then in 1930 was given a long tailed racing body and raced again by the works. In 1932 it was re-bodied yet again and sold as a four-seater International Sports model.
