"Racing Through Time" is an exceptional series entailing the sensational beginnings of a much loved global sport. From the grease and glamour, to the danger and thrills, this is an action packed, fact filled tour of the world of motor racing, featuring in-depth stories on the legends of motor racing, the high-performance machines, the men behind the wheel, and the circuits that have made history. Throughout history Aston Martin has always been one of the most famous sports car names. Favoured by wealthy sports-minded motoring enthusiasts, Aston Martin epitomises exclusivity, style and power. The company may have had a chequered business past but Aston Martin have, over the years, consistently produced arguably the world's classiest sports cars as well as enjoying a long and successful history in motor racing. Aston Martin only raced variations of the cars that they built for sale to the public so they were never really in a position to win Le Mans outright, that is until the maximum engine size limit matched the size of the engines they were building. They used top line drivers and soon established a very competent team set-up that was able to compete for the prizes. From the acquisition of Aston Martin by its "post-war saviour" Sir David Brown and the beginning of the classic DB models, to the company establishing a reputation as a great racing brand with models such as the famous DB5 in 1963, and market leader of desirable luxury sports cars.
