[INTRODUCING CLIENTS] "Crusader" Used by Aston Martin in Nürburgring 24hr Race 2013 Video




A couple of years ago, Aston Martin published a video summary of the Nürburgring 24hr Race featuring a track by World Beyond - Crusader via their YouTube channel:

The 2013 Nürburgring 24hr Race saw Aston Martin celebrate 100 years of Power, Beauty and Soul in style. Ahead of the race a cavalcade of both past and present Aston Martins took to the iconic Nordschleife track in an exclusive Centenary parade lap. Leading the procession was Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez in CC100 (http://cc100.astonmartin.com), the stunning speedster concept created to celebrate our racing heritage and engineering expertise. CC100 was followed by the car's inspirational forebear, DBR1- the same car that won the 1959 1000km of Nurburging, crewed by the man who drove to victory 54 years ago, Sir Stirling Moss.
Just hours later the Aston Martin team prepared for the world's most gruelling GT endurance test, as three official Aston Martin entries and five customer cars entered the race. The Bilstein liveried V12 Vantage GT3 lead the charge, followed by a close-to-production example of the new V12 Vantage S. A third entry saw Dr Ulrich Bez and team race perhaps the most innovative car in Aston Martin's history, a hydrogen-hybrid Rapide S, a world-first for competitive racing.
Continuing Aston Martin's 100% finishing record in the race all three official entries came home safely, completing 24hrs of intense action on one of the world's most famous tracks. Heritage, engineering expertise, world-class design and racing DNA - elements that came together in one weekend of action to celebrate Aston Martin's centenary year in the best way possible.
Even now I can't express how wonderful it feels when one of your favourite car manufacturers finds your track online and utilizes it in such a cool way.
