GAYDON, England – Aston Martin Lagonda CEO Andy Palmer released a statement on Wednesday morning about Aston Martin’s decision to halt their FIA WEC Hypercar program and put the blame fully on the IMSA/ACO prototype convergence.  “It’s LMDh and convergence to blame,” said Palmer, “Not the fact that we needed a $200 million investment from Mr. Stroll to keep the company afloat as a whole.  We wanted the chance to spend tens of millions of dollars we didn’t have, then take on other manufacturers who are in a much better financial state than us.”

The Lugg Nutt spoke to another industry insider, who wished to remain anonymous, that said he was “shocked the guy that started the Nissan GT-R LM NISMO LMP1 program would lead another failed prototype program. Aston Martin? More like Asston Martin.”
