Aston Martin Valkyrie Wows Crowds on Public Debut at Silverstone
Aston Martin Valkyrie Wows Crowds on Public Debut at Silverstone
• Aston Martin Valkyrie showcased dynamically ahead of 2019 British GP
• High performance test driver Chris Goodwin completes lap of Silverstone
• Verification Prototype 1 now set to begin extensive physical testing regime
 
14 July 2019:   Silverstone, UK: Aston Martin Valkyrie has broken cover after making its dynamic public debut in front of an enthusiastic crowd ahead of the 2019 British Grand Prix.
 
Piloted by Aston Martin High Performance Test Driver Chris Goodwin, the 1,160bhp machine, took to Silverstone’s world-famous Grand Prix circuit for its first public demonstration run. With the focus not on outright lap time, today’s showcase offers a glimpse of what is to come from this extraordinary hypercar.
 
Following months of digital modelling and simulation work alongside both Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ engineers, today’s drive becomes one of the first times that Aston Martin Valkyrie has been driven in the physical world - a testimony to the technological capability of the team’s cutting-edge development techniques.
 
Aston Martin Valkyrie, the world’s most extreme road car and platform for a future FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC) challenger, is the combined vision of Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s Chief Technical Officer Adrian Newey, Aston Martin EVP and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman and Aston Martin VP and Chief Special Operations Officer David King. It was created as a result of a technical and strategic collaboration between Aston Martin, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and project partner AF Racing.
 
Chris Goodwin said on completing the lap, “I’ve driven this car around Silverstone for countless hours on the simulator at Aston Martin Red Bull Racing’s HQ and in many other sportscars throughout my career, but to drive Aston Martin Valkyrie here today feels exceptionally special. Of course, we still have a lot of development work to go but we can now begin to really push the physical testing process and realise the capabilities of what we have developed over the past months. Putting that aside, today has brought a real smile to my face and I hope that the crowds watching from the stands enjoyed it as much as I did.”
 
Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda President & Group CEO said, “Today is a real milestone in not only Aston Martin’s history but for our industry as a whole. Aston Martin Valkyrie continues to redefine what you and I recognise as a hypercar, possessing unrivalled levels of performance in a package that is technologically beyond anything else. While Chris’ demonstration today was not delivered at full speed, there is no doubt in my mind that we will one day return to deliver its full potential around this magnificent circuit.”
 
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Executive Vice President and Chief Creative Officer said, “We have created a truly unique, beautiful rear mid-engined hypercar in Aston Martin Valkyrie, that represents the ultimate fusion of art and technology. I am incredibly proud of everybody at Aston Martin and Red Bull Advanced Technologies to have the Aston Martin Valkyrie run for the first time in public at the British Grand Prix.”
 
Christian Horner, Team Principal Aston Martin Red Bull Racing said, “This moment is the result of a magnificent collaboration of design and development between Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Aston Martin. The initial vision was to build a hypercar that would deliver the best in technological advancement and high performance and, together, we have achieved this. This first public running is just the beginning of a remarkable story for Aston Martin Valkyrie.”
 
Adrian Newey, Chief Technical Officer at Aston Martin Red Bull Racing, said: “To finally see Aston Martin Valkyrie running five years from when I first sat down and started sketching what this car could look like is quite an emotional day. With the change in vision angle as it comes past and the noise, it is now doing what it is supposed to be doing which is to move and be dynamic. It has been an enormous push for the team to get it running here today at the home of British motorsport so this is also a special moment for them.” 
 
The 150 road-going Aston Martin Valkyries are sold out, with first deliveries commencing in Q4 2019.
