2009 Lola AMR LMP1 Le Mans 24 HR

Can't resist myself from picking up one of these gem. Well, in general I love AMR race cars, the DBR9 in particular. It's just like love at first sight, since I first saw them competing in 2006 Le Mans.... The blue and orange Gulf liveries just add icing on the cake on this model... and the finishing is just awesome, great piece of art by Spark.

Why I picked the #008? Why not #007 which finished in 7th overall in the 2009 Le Mans 24 HR? One simple reason, Darren Turner. One of the UK's most successful and experienced racing drivers. He has competed and excelled in almost every four-wheel racing category, most notably taking two GT1 class victories at the Le Mans 24 Hours. In 2009 he moved up to the LMP1 class of the Le Mans Series with Aston Martin and also raced the brand new Nissan GT-R in selected rounds of the FIA GT Championship.
