Young Driver Shines in Final RLR Test

The final test session of the season saw Team RLR give an aspiring young driver a taste of what it is like to compete in the world’s most competitive endurance racing category.

James Rigby (24), from Watford, joined the Lancashire-based squad to experience a day behind the wheel of the MG Lola EX265 the team races in the LMP2 category of the le Mans Series after he impressed as part of Team RLR’s driver development programme in the 2011 SPEED EuroSeries.

Rigby was able to benefit from the experience of regular Team RLR driver Rob Garofall throughout the day as the team wrapped up its 2011 programme at Snetterton, end enjoyed significant seat time as his reward for his hard work both on and off the track throughout the year.

Team RLR will now focus on developing it plans for the 2012 Le Mans Series and challenging for honours in what will be the top level of the championship due to the introduction of a new format next season.

James Rigby said:
“It was a great experience and I can’t thank Team RLR enough for the opportunity. Even though it was quite wet the MG Lola was amazing to drive, actually easier in many ways than what I’m used to as it has so much more capability."
