Darren Turner is one of the UK's most successful and experienced racing drivers. His talent was recognised early in his career when he won the much-coveted McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award, joining an elite group of racers including David Coulthard, Dario Franchitti and Jenson Button.
Darren worked for many years as a test driver for the McLaren F1 Team, alongside a busy racing career in single-seaters, touring cars and sportscars.
Since 2005 Darren has been a key member of the Aston Martin Racing team, a partnership that has seen him win the toughest race of them all, the Le Mans 24 Hours three times.
In 2018 Darren raced the new Aston Martin Vantage GTE in the FIA World Endurance Championship. He also re-joined Andrew Howard in the Beechdean AMR Aston Martin to fight for victory in the British GT Championship.
Darren continues in his role as high performance development driver for Aston Martin Lagonda.
