ASTON 16

Issue 16 of 'ASTON', the award-winning publication of the Aston Martin Heritage Trust.

ASTON 16 was published in December 2014.

Another centenary this year, somewhat more muted but nevertheless important. In 1914 Lionel Martin first put his "hybrid" on the road, combining an Isotta-chassis hybrid with the prototype Aston Martin power unit. 

The front/back cover photo: Geoff Duke's DB3 has just crashed out of the 1953 Sebring 12-hour race and mechanic Jack Sopp is unsuccessfully trying to repair the damage with a Rudge hammer.
