Dallara Le Mans Prototypes old and new, and new Aston and McLaren GT racers ...

Working for the likes of Lancia, Ferrari and Audi, Dallara usually operated in the background. In the early 2000s, the Italian specialist developed a sports prototype, which was briefly raced in 2001 as the Chrysler LMP. When the American company withdrew its support, the cars returned to racing as the altogether more successful Dallara SP1 Judd. Raced on both sides of the Atlantic, the striking Le Mans Prototype won the Daytona 24 Hours outright in 2002 and also finished best of the rest in that year's 24 Hours of Le Mans. It was raced through to the 2005 season. As can be seen in our 54-shot gallery some of the cars are still raced to these days. The history of each of the six chassis is also chronicled. For the first time since then, Dallara have again produced a top level prototype in the form of the BR1 that will compete in next year's FIA World Endurance Championship. At least three cars will race with a choice of a newly developed naturally aspirated Gibson V8 or an evolution of the AER twin-turbo V6.
Shortly after the road-going Vantage broke cover, Aston Martin also revealed the GTE version, which will compete in the FIA WEC as well. The very aggressive looking machine is powered by a re-tuned version of the twin-turbo V8 and features a sequential six-speed gearbox. The Vantage GTE has already been testing extensively during the last few months, so should be instantly competitive.
Not quite ready to hit the track but already teased is this McLaren 720S GT3. Due to be offered to customers in 2019, the GT3 version of the highly acclaimed 720S will be submitted to an extensive test and development program in 2018.

If you should see a man walking down a crowded street talking aloud to himself, don't run in the opposite direction, but run towards him, because he's a poet. You have nothing to fear from the poet - but the truth.
