When David Brown purchased Aston Martin in 1949, one of his main goals was to win the World Sportscar Championship. The DBR1's predecessors, the DB2, DB3, and DB3S, all attempted and failed. Compared to the DB3S, the DBR1 is lighter and over ten percent more powerful. The improvements made a huge difference, and the DBR1 won its first race at the Nurburgring 1000km. The DBR1's best year came in 1959 when it claimed victory at the Nurburgring 1000km, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and at Goodwood. After the 1959 season, Brown withdrew from the championship.
