RYAN HOOKER HEADS TO FRANCE WITH EMOTIONAL ENGINEERING

Ryan Hooker (Upminster) will contend the second round of the British GT Championship in the Emotional Engineering prepared Vauxhall Monaro, alongside Matt Griffin. This round of the British GT Championship sees the GT2 class cars cross the Channel to join the FIA GT series race at Magny- Cours, France

Xero Competition, with whom Ryan has started the 2005 season, will not be entering the Magny-Cours round which has enabled Ryan to take the opportunity to drive for the Surrey based Emotional Engineering team on this one race basis.

"I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to partner Matt Griffin in the Monaro at Magny Cours" said Ryan. "I have followed the Monaro's development with interest and they are one year into a three year development strategy. As well as pure racing, development is a side of motorsport which I enjoy very much."

"The opportunity to race at Magny-Cours, a track I haven't been to previously, is also very exciting especially when you are going to be alongside the FIA class. It will certainly be a weekend where I will have to learn fast - new track, new car, new team but I am looking forward to the challenge and I will be trying my hardest for Emotional Engineering."

Sunday's race is a three hour event around the 4.4km French track which is also the venue for the French Formula One Grand Prix.
