Warren Jones, Technical Partner Manager at Aston Martin Racing makes his objective crystal clear. 2013 marks the most ambitious motorsport program for Aston Martin Racing to date, as it aims to win both the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) - as the distinguished marque celebrates its 100th Birthday.

This week (March 13-17) Aston Martin Racing's 2013 motorsport season will get underway at the legendary 12 Hours of Sebring in Highlands County, Florida. The new V8-powered Vantage GTE - a revised version of the race-winning 2012 Vantage GTE - will make its competitive debut ahead of Aston Martin Racing's four-car campaign, all of which will be sporting the K&N logo. K&N has been a longtime supplier to Aston Martin Racing; however the technical partnership for the 2013 season in essence takes their relationship to the next level.
Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th this year which will bring increased attention to AMR.

"The partnership covers the entire AMR team," outlines Joost Adriaans, K&N's EMEA R&D Manager and OEM Account Manager. "This includes K&N logos on the four white iconic Aston Martins with the baby blue Gulf livery, the team transporter truck, the garage and hospitality unit, and on their website."

Adriaans first met with Warren Jones at the renowned Silverstone race track in Northamptonshire, United Kingdom in August 2012, during round 5 of the WEC. "We ended up chatting about AMR's plans for the upcoming season, and from a technical standpoint, I was very interested in the air filter construction on the new car as well. This is where the initial contact was made and formed the foundation for the technical partnership which is in place today," explains Adriaans.
2013 is slated to be Aston Martin Racing's most exhilarating and rewarding season to date.

"I feel as a manufacturer of high quality air filters, it is important to team up and compliment other high quality automotive corporations. With Aston Martin stepping up with its most ambiguously exciting racing program to date, it was an excellent opportunity for K&N to join this program and provide them with the best support possible. The team will use custom manufactured air filters, specifically developed for the Vantage GTE cars. With the knowledge that K&N has gathered in 40 plus years of air filter development, we feel we can make a valuable contribution to the goals of AMR for the 2013 season. It's an honor to work so closely with a brand that has such a rich racing heritage. At the same time, Aston Martin is celebrating its 100th year Anniversary this year, which will draw even more attention to the luxury brand and its racing team."
