Back in September, Aston Martin announced that it will return to the Le Mans LMP1 class in 2011. The automotive producer is currently working on a new race car. The project, which is being created from the ground up, will come with an open cockpit monocoque chassis and be powered by a purpose-built racing unit, which, thank God, will say “NO!” to diesel.
"Having won the GT category twice at Le Mans in 2007 and 2008 and the Le Mans Series outright in 2009, we still want to achieve our ultimate goal of winning the 24 Hour race overall to bring the title back to Britain,” said Aston Martin chairman, David Richards.
You see, Aston Martin has been so busy preparing all this details that it hadn’t had time to choose a name for the car. Now, the company is relying on its fans to come up with a designation for the racer.
The carmaker will offer Aston Martin and Aston Martin Racing Merchandise for those who submit a name for the car.
“Aston Martin is giving all enthusiasts the unique opportunity to be part of the company's history, as well as the chance to win a range of Aston Martin and Aston Martin Racing Merchandise by suggesting a name for this race car,” stated the press release.
