Also announced today :

It was announced today that former Grand Prix stars Martin Brundle and Mark Blundell were joining forces with David Price to create a new team, with the aim of racing in the 2006 FIA GT Championship and the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The venture is at a very early stage, and more details concerning additional drivers and personnel, along with the team location, will be released at a later date.

Martin said of the project, "Mark and I share a burning desire to race again. I have never hung up my boots, but have simply been too busy these past three years to get my adrenaline fix at the wheel. We both still have plenty to offer on the track, and with the right car and sponsors, together with David Price, we can build a great team and television programme around this project."

Mark added, "Our preferred option would be to run the works Aston Martin DBR9, a beautiful car which, with the planned development programme, is sure to be competitive. Aston Martin enjoys a great sports car and Le Mans heritage, and our combined experiences, particularly with Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Bentley, will be invaluable. The FIA GT Championship travels around the globe, which will be both interesting to the sponsors and a great challenge for us as drivers. My motivation to race is as strong as ever, and the friendly but ever-intense competition between Martin and myself will drive us both on!"

David Price commented: "When Mark suggested the idea of us getting together again it sounded very appealing. We all have a good personal and professional relationship, and I genuinely believe that the three of us are capable of taking on the best in the world."
