Aston Martin confirms GT1 world plan.

Hexis and new Young Driver teams to pursue two-car programmes in 2010.
Aston Martin has confirmed that it will be represented by two teams in the new FIA GT1 world championship in 2010, with both Hexis AMR and Young Driver AMR having applied for two-car entries.

Both teams plan to run a pair of DBR9s in the championship, but will have to wait until their entries are approved by the FIA. The confirmed entry list will only be issued in January.

Hexis AMR, an existing Aston Martin Racing partner team, has successfully campaigned DBRS9s for the past three years, winning the FIA European GT3 teams' title in 2009. It plans to run its GT1 programme alongside its existing GT3 activities from its base at Nimes.

In contract, Young Driver AMR is a new team, formed specifically to compete in the FIA GT1 World Championship with Aston Martin. The team has taken delivery of its two DBR9s and is currently setting up a new race facility.
