Top racer returns to MG

One of Britain’s most experienced endurance racing drivers will help MG’s return to international motorsport.

Warren Hughes, a former MG factory driver, will be in Team RLR’s line up in the MG Lola EX265 during the final two rounds of the 2011 Le Mans Series at Silverstone and Estoril.

MG Motor UK recently announced a partnership with Team RLR. The team hopes to contest the Le Mans 24-hour race next year.

Hughes has previously won Le Mans class honours in the MG Lola EX265. He will partner Barry Gates and Rob Garofall at Silverstone on September 11.

Looking forward to the Silverstone race, Hughes said: “Being back in an MG-backed car is a great feeling and my time with MG before was some of my fondest of my racing career.”

Team RLR visited MG Motor UK’s factory at MG Birmingham recently and saw the MG6 GT and MG6 Magnette models that are designed, and engineered at the site. Final assembly of both cars also takes place at the Birmingham plant.
