Quote from Aston Martin in the Racing World :
By the time the 80s hit, not only were they doing just fine in the races but they were entering but the company was sponsoring All Aston Martin Owners racing events too, making sure that anybody who had bought one of their cars because of its speed had plenty of chances to put it to good use. Unfortunately, financial troubles saw the mid–eighties losing Aston Martins on the racing circuit, returning briefly and with limited success towards the end of the decade. This sad state of affairs continued through the nineties and early 2000s.
This racing streak was continued after World War II when David Brown Limited bought the company in 1947. The models produced during this period, the world famous DBs, all won plenty of races for the company, bringing in prize money but, more importantly, demonstrating just how fast, slick and cool the cars really were.
Manufacturers of luxury or sports cars sell their cars almost entirely based on one factor: image. They have plenty of ways of promoting this, but one of the best ones is to put their cars, engines, and teams against the car, engine, and team of another manufacturer. This is why you find so many of the luxury car manufacturers creating racing models as well, be they F1, LeMan, Autosport or whichever other competitions happen to take their fancy.
