Castrol EDGE Titanium Trials Present: Clone Rival. Watch as we clone Aston Martin Vulcan driver, Darren Turner, and put him against his ultimate rival: himself. Will he have what it takes to be Titanium Strong?

Darren Turner is one of the UK's most successful and experienced racing drivers. As a works driver for Aston Martin Racing he has delivered back-to-back class victories in the Le Mans 24 Hours and currently competes in the FIA World Endurance Championship in the #95 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE. Victory in the GTE class of Saturday’s European Le Mans Series race and a third place podium finish in the FIA World Endurance Championship opener in April 2016  gave Turner an almost perfect start to the new racing season. Darren's 'day job' is high performance development driver for Aston Martin Lagonda.
 
Turner’s talent was recognized early in his career when he won the much-coveted McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award, which led to a long run as a test driver for the McLaren Mercedes F1 team. He has multiple victories in single-seaters, touring cars and sports car racing.

Darren is a test driver for Aston Martin, and has the honor of being one of only a few people to drive the Aston Martin Vulcan, of which there are only 24 in the world.

Castrol EDGE Titanium Trials Present: Clone Rival. Watch as we clone Koenigsegg One:1 driver, Christoffer Nygaard, and put him against his ultimate rival: himself. Will he have what it takes to be Titanium Strong?

Koenigsegg One:1

Power: 1,360hp
Weight: 1,360kg
Power-to-weight ratio: 1:1
Christoffer has raced very successfully in German national series including the VW Polo Cup and the Seat Leon Supercopa, before he switched to GT racing and raced in the FIA GT3-European Championship and ADAC GT Masters in 2009. The change to GT-racing brought instant success for Christoffer, as he quickly became a race winner in the European Championship. He subsequently became a member of the Young Driver AMR Team in 2010 for the FIA GT1 World Championship and was also part of the Young Driver AMR assault at the 24h of Le Mans in 2010, where he finished on the podium. 

In 2012, Christoffer raced with Young Driver AMR in the highly competitive German ADAC GT Masters and took one win at the Sachsenring. He was also part of the Young Driver AMR Le Mans-team in 2012, where Young Driver AMR entered one Vantage V8 together with Aston Martin Racing. 

In 2014 Christoffer finished 2nd in Aston Martin Racing Northwest’s assault on the Worldcup title. He set a new GTE AM lap record at the 24 Hours of Le Mans along the way. 

Christoffer is a test driver for Koenigsegg and one of only a handful of people who have experienced the power of the Koenigsegg One:1.
