Tim Schrick, D MOTOR-presenter, race driver and car nutty test pilot has a vision: he wants to compete in the toughest endurance race in the world, the legendary 24-Hours N?rburgring on the Nordschleife – with a car he developed himself. His goal is to place in the Top 10.
The race car will be based on a normal production car, an Aston martin V8 Vantage, bought at a second-rate used car dealer. This is to be turned into a competitive race car. An undertaking that normally requires years. Tim wants to turn his dream into reality in a mere nine months. He needs a strong team for this: Unkel Funny provides mental support and technical know-how. Aged 70, the motorsport idealist is a chain-smoking old school racing driver and has escorted Tim throughout his entire motorsport career. Tim wants to rebuild the car in his well equipped garage.
His second helper is J?rg van Ommen. The former DTM-driver and the teams second driver brings his vast motorsport experience to the team. . He knows what it means to build a race car in such a short time frame and the problems this involves. Darius Baghi is a longtime friend of Tim and his engine builder. Petrol is coursing through his veins and he is crazy for performance. He and Tim will co-develop the heart of the race-Aston. A huge challenge as Tim has exceptional requirements.
