Aston Martin Racing
The first 'Aston Martin' was actually named after the Aston Clint Hillclimb (and after Lionel Martin the founder) in 1913. Production after the First World War concentrated on competition cars for Grand Prix, Hillclimbs, Sprints and long distance racing. In 1922 Count Louis Zborowski put money into Aston Martin and he had a clear interest in motorsport. Bought out in 1926 by investors who brought with them the Bill Renwick 1½-litre overhead cam engine, it was decided to use the 'Aston Martin' name with the Renwick engine, and to take part in competitions to sell the cars. Bankruptcy in 1932 and again in 1936 closed the door on motorsports until rescued by David Brown in 1947. Entries in the Le Mans 24 hours secured 3 class wins during the 1950s and an outright win in 1959.

Aston Martin Speed 1936. Aston Martin needed a larger engine than its 1½-litre unit, so the 1½ litre Renwick and Bertelli engine was enlarged to 1949cc. In this form it was fitted to 30 chassis in order to be homologated for the 1936 Le Mans 24hour race. That race was cancelled and most of the 30 cars were eventually sold off as speed models. This one is supercharged
