Aston Martin Agreed on Postponing Hypercar Programme

Aston Martin is decisive on their entrance back into the top tier of the World Endurance Championship with their Valkyrie LM Hypercar.

The British Manufacturer is believed to release information about delaying their hypercar project by at least a year and not racing in the 2020/21 season.

Aston has refused to comment on the matter, but is certainly going to create confusion amongst the global sports car racing market in view of the recent announcement of IMSA and the WEC joining forces in the 2021/2022 season allowing both the IMSA Sportcar Championship and the LM Hypercars to battle it out for outright victory of the WEC championship.

After the announcement of the merger of IMSA and WEC, Aston stated that it was “looking forward to working closely with all parties to ensure that the hypercar vision retains its proper position within global sportscar competition.”

If Aston Martin are to delay the programme, it would leave Toyota to be the only confirmed manufacturer competing in the new HyperCar era.
