What category in the 2022 Le Mans endurance race did Aston Martin's partner team win?Aston Martin's partner teams won in the GTE-Am class of the 2022 Le Mans race.
Which Aston Martin partner teams won in the GTE-Am category?The winning Aston Martin partner teams are TF Sport and NorthWest AMR.
The winner of the GTE-Am class was TF Sport’s Vantage GTE driven by the winning crew of Ben Keating, Marco Sørensen, and Henrique Chaves. The trio, all first-time Le Mans winners, drove the #33 car to victory.
“This is a great result and performance from TF Sport. We’ve had no penalties, no mistakes, no trips to the gravel or anything,” said Keating.
Finishing third was the #98 car from NorthWest AMR piloted by drivers Paul Dalla Lana, Nicki Thiim, and David Pittard.
“We are competing in the full championship and there are a lot of guest entries here with very fast drivers. But the consistency of both Aston Martins and our driver line-ups have brought us up. It’s been a rollercoaster of emotions because after half an hour I’d have been happy to even finish in the top 10. But for 20 hours we were fighting for a place in the top three,” Pittard said.
The event marked the fifth year of the Vantage GTE’s participation at Le Mans, and the 1-3 result, in the wake of the double GTE-Pro and Am victory in 2020, is the car’s third GTE-Am win.
“To enjoy this kind of success at the top level of endurance racing is testimony to the quality of the Vantage GTE, the TF Sport team, and the Vantage road car that is the basis of the race car. Congratulations to Ben, Marco, and Henrique on a faultless race and their first win at Le Mans. Aston Martin was born 109-years ago out of a love of racing and competing at all levels of motorsport is at the heart of Aston Martin’s DNA. It is fitting that Vantage, our most focused performance sports car is a true success with our customers on the road and track - Vantage F1 Edition, V12 Vantage, Vantage GTE — all winners,” commented Aston Martin Executive Chairman Lance Stroll.
