Barcelona Le Mans Series Rocked by Charouz LMP1 Lola with Aston Martin Power
The Charouz LMP1 Lolas made an impact at the Barcelona Le Mans Series race with each of its Aston Martin powered coupes securing podium positions. The Charouz Racing team rocked the sports car world during qualifying and the race.
Charouz LMP1 Lola with Aston Martin V12 engine
Charouz and Aston Martin combined efforts to take advantage of new LMP (Le Mans Prototype) regulations in 2008 which allow GT1 engines in prototype chassis. The Lola chassis is fitted with the latest specification Aston Martin six liter V12 engine. With this combination the K&N Engineering sponsored Team Charouz competed against Audi and Peugeot diesel powered cars during the endurance race.

Lola LMP1 coupe finished third in Le Mans Series race at Barcelona, Spain
Stefan Mucke took third position overall in the early part of the race after overtaking Team Minassian’s Peugeot. Mucke and his teammate Jan Charouz drove the six hour race with only one incident. The LMP1 made contact with Rob Bell’s GT Ferrari on the right hand corner of the track near the pit straight. The Lola chassis was strong enough to withstand the impact and continued at a fast pace to ultimately secure third place overall.
Team Manager Antonin Charouz selected K&N Engineering air filters for this new coupe. “The K&N air filter is a great match for our new project,” said Charouz. “K&N air filters give us excellent filtration and protect our very expensive engines during long endurance races.”
Team Charouz will race next in Italy at Monza Racetrack.
