By the late 1950s, Aston Martin had reached its full stride as a manufacturer of attractive, distinguished, and competitive sports racing cars. On the racetracks of Europe, the DB3 and DB3S proved to be important development racers for the later DBR1 cars, in which drivers like Stirling Moss, Roy Salvadori, Carroll Shelby, and others would take the fight to the Continental marques.
