@flyingspur - By the what was this even all about that they even had to change tires? That serious huh?
The car is blue. Sky blue with orange lipstick lol. And yeah they were demonstrating pitstops. 12 second stops over and over again. It was a lovely sight. Very professionally done. Especially the hydraulic jacks, the car being lifted in an instant on them was a sight. See them in my videos.

I know man. I'd have flipped if someone clicked pics of a DBR9 a few hundred metres from my place and I didn't know about it!! No publicity at all.

'Mea culpa'...WOW. You ARE erudite, Sir.

Lovely car there. Thanks for sharing the pics and the videos flyingspur. Jalsa thanks for sharing the pics as well. That car is one hell of a monster and that exhaust note makes it one killer machine.

I happened to be passing the sea link on saturday, got to see the aston making 3 runs, the sound of the engine was amazing. He did a couple of 180s (coming really close to the barricade) and stalled the engine once.

Great to see these kind of events happening in India.
