LE MANS: VICTORY FOR TEAM DEMPSEY WITH TAG HEUER

24 hours of emotion and passion. A mythical race with legendary teams. A first victory for Patrick Dempsey's team.

Aligned at the start line, three teams supported by TAG Heuer and linked by a passion for speed and performance: Aston Martin Racing, Gulf Racing and Dempsey - Proton Racing.

24 hours without cracking under pressure. 24 hours to endure for the most prestigious endurance race on a world-renowned circuit: Le Mans.

It took 335 laps for TAG Heuer ambassador Patrick Dempsey's team to win in the LMGTE Am class. A feat worthy of the unbroken determination and concentration of its three pilots: Christian Ried, Julien Andlauer - 18 years old - and Matt Campbell. The 911 RSR of the Dempsey - Proton Racing team thus signs its first victory at Le Mans.

As physical as it is mental, the race requires constant attention at every turn and passing. Such pressure is well-known by the two legendary Gulf Racing and Aston Martin Racing teams.

Competing for the first time, the new Aston Martin Vantage AMR achieved a promising race. 8th in the LMGTE Pro class, Aston Martin Racing proved its endurance against its competitors for 339 laps.
