Aston Martin's head, Bert Bertellli, described the Ulster LM19s as 'the best cars I ever built'. This car's history includes some of the most capable of 1930s British private owner/drivers. It also took part in the world's greatest, most grueling and most compelling endurance races – the French Le Mans 24-Hours, the Italian Mille Miglia, and the RAC Tourist Trophy on the fabulous Ards public road circuit in Northern Ireland. The car also contested the 1936 Grand Prix de l'ACF – the French Grand Prix – run that year for sports cars, when it was driven by the greatest British racing driver of the 1930s, the charismatic Dick Seaman.
