ASTON MARTIN DB2 MYT625

POSSIBLY THE MOST FAMOUS CLUB RACING DB2 EVER ?

This is the website of 'probably the most successful Feltham car in Aston Martin Owners Club racing ever  and arguably one of the most Successful Aston Martin Owners Club Racing Aston Martin's of all time'
an excerpt from the windscreen label write up for the ?AMOC DB2 reunion 18th & 19th August 2001? 
Kind words written by Alan Wheatley specifically for that event.
The car was raced in very short Club racing events, mainly 5, 8 or 10 laps from April 1954, but in 2007 it was prepared for much longer events which culminated in the Woodcote Trophy event at the Spa Six Hour meeting in September 2009., only the car's 2nd 1 hr Enduro, the last being in April 1954 with then owner Alex McMillan at the wheel.
still A Remarkable Car though LML/50/181 - MYT 625


STOP PRESS !
May 2020 -  Just found a race qualifying result sheet that I had forgotten about, the 1999 St John Horsfall Feltham race including STD DB4s, where Steve Bamford qualified 28th in MYT out of 33 cars in heavy rain, almost the last Feltham Aston, out qualified by all of the front running A/B Feltham cars including Chris Adams, driving KAK640 in 19th place, 2nd fastest of the A/B cars behind Rikki Cann in WFH 400, 1st A/B car & ex Jack Moss, then as now owned by Jim Darling, the race was cancelled due to heavy rain.

April 2020 - We have added Guy Moss into the 1990 results at AMOC Wiscombe & Curborough - an ommision on my part, sorry Guy.

April 2018- We have been offered a Trophy from Curborough 1972, Class 3, 2nd in class - I think it was Craig Dent who came 2nd in Class 2 but as he drove his DB4 GT in Class 3 he might have come 2nd in that Class & the Trophy engravers got muddled up. We need to find the results for that meeting.
Craig has been in touch about this but can't remember it.

Found a race programme from 1971 which states Craig Dent was entered, all I have to do now is find out whether he competed in MYT or not. 03/05/13
We have been given some letters  from Aston Martin that date from 1963 explaining the history, the letters to AML were from Fred Tippetts, Briony Serrell's father, they were given to us by Ian Stowe on the 24/12/12.
