  • Hey guys!

    This group is great, who can argue against the beauty of a classic Aston Martin?

    I thought you Aston Martin fans might be interested to learn that our film production produced a TV-series called GT-RACER, featuring races with some great Aston Martin's in just about ever episode. We even capture some great footage of the famous Project Car at Silverstone, Nurbrugring and Spa. The DB4GT Works Lightweight even appears at Laguna Seca and Lime Rock.

    GT-RACER is now out on DVD. You can see trailers on the director's page on the VRL here:

    Also, make sure you check out Shaken & Stirred, a Cinema Verite Documentary devoted to classic Aston Martin racing at Spa!

    You can order the DVDs here:

    For VRL members we put in a great discount that you get by entering this discount code: "JGFILM"

    Hopefully we get some feedback how you liked the films.
    We have a group on the VRL to discuss them that is here:

  • I know of 1 DB4 Lightweight which is for sale at the moment. Definitely a front runner in the right hands and raced this year successfully. If anyone is interested please contact me. 00 (353) 87 2415870
  • Peter Wheelers DB4 Lightweight.

  • It is very sad to report that Peter Wheeler of TVR fame died yesterday after a short illness. many of you will remember him for his exploits with AMOC and HGTCC in his white DB4 Lightweight. He will be sadly missed and my condolences go out to Vicky and the children.

  • Connor, great to see you at the Silverstone meet. Please drop me a private e mail address, as I believe I know who purchased Stephen Moores car.


  • 2 Lightweights have been sold recently one Jeremy Cooke's which was crashed last year and my Sister car which was owned by Stephen Moore. This was sold by Bonhams at the Aston martin sale and as yet I dont know who the owner is.
    I do know that 1 lightweight is for sale at the moment and if anybody is interested in buying it and getting into racing i would be delighted in putting them in contact with the owner. It is a front runner !
  • Dear Conor
    I'd always want to be a member of any Group that you sponsor :-))
    Warmest regards - Stephen

The Future of the Aston Martin DB Lightweights

What is the future for these cars, where can they race and with whom ? Is there a possibility that they could be given some special FIA recognition as an invited class that could perhaps race at some FIA'd meetings ? See the article from Classic & Sportscar Magazine Feb 1986 on the track test of the Lightweight by Willie Green in its early form and at 328BHP, now the cars are putting out 405+ BHP. The article is attached under the photos of the 25 lightweights below.What do you think?1986…
