The company ChromeCars Automotive Archaelogists, located in Laasdorf, Thuringia, just a few kilometers away from Jena, brings two racing cars to the USA. So far in Laasdorf classics drove to the farm, where once great names like Elvis Presley, Michael Schumacher, Nicolas Cage or Michael Jackson sat. With an extensive movie car collection, from blockbusters such as “Bullitt”, “Just 60 Seconds” or “The Fast and The Furious”, ChromeCars can now without hesitation call itself the world market leader in this segment. But now historic racing cars are coming to the backcountry of ChromeCars and now ChromeCars is making its way in historic motorsport, bringing two race cars to Daytona and Sebring.
In cooperation with Britec Motorsports, ChromeCars launches a 2013 Chevron B36 and 2013 2013 Aston Martin Vintage GT3 at the 24-hour race in Daytona on November 13-17. Two weeks later, on the 4th-8th In December you start in Sebring at the 12 hours. The two ChromeCars cars are driven by Oliver Mathai and Marco Werner, who were already successful at the Oldtimer Grand Prix at the Nürburgring and were able to clinch a victory in the Aston Martin Masters Endurance Legends. “I’m really looking forward to this project with ChromeCars,” says Marco Werner. “I was only once in my career in Daytona and I got that right away in 1995. So I have fond memories of Daytona and my goal is clear “grins Marco Werner. Werner is one of the few racing drivers in motorsport history to win all three major sports car classics (Le Mans, Daytona, Sebring). “Of course, it would be nice to be successful in the historic area as well, because I’ve been able to win Sebring three times in modern motorsport,” said the Sebring winner in 2003, 2005 and 2007
