Aston Martin only raced variations of the cars that they built for sale to the public so they were never really in a position to win Le Mans outright, that is until the maximum engine size limit matched the size of the engines they were building. From the acquisition of Aston Martin by its post war saviour sir David Brown and the beginning of the classic DB models; to the company establishing themselves a reputation of a great racing brand with models such as the famous DB5 in 1963, and market leader of desirable luxury sports cars.
From Cooper’s humble beginnings at Charles Cooper’s small garage in Surbiton, South of London, to their entry into racing at 500cc class; all the way to Coopers successes in Formulas Ones single seater cars and their domination of British racing.

Including interviews with John Cooper, Jack Brabham and the great Stirling Moss.
