Jonny Kane has a busy week ahead when he will be testing for both MG Lola and Orange Arrows. This is an exciting time for the young Ulsterman with many new driving experiences and opportunities. Jonny will travel to Albacete on Sunday to test for three days with MG in preparation for their return to Le Mans in June. Jonny has signed with MG to race at the prestigious Le Mans race and is looking forward to his first test in the new MG Lola LMP675.

"I've been getting pretty restless lately after a much longer winter break than I'm used to, so it will be great to get back on a circuit. The MG had a successful test earlier this week and I can't wait to experience it for myself. Endurance racing is a new challenge for me but one that I'm really looking forward to. The initial running seems to have gone well and the driver line-up is very strong so I'm extremely positive about our performance."

Kane will then travel onward to Vairano to test with Orange Arrows on Thursday and Friday. Kane had an unexpected test with the Formula One team last week when their contracted drivers were unavailable and is delighted to be given the opportunity to go on a second test so soon.

"It was fantastic to get the chance to get back in an F1 car and work with such a professional group of people. I was really impressed by the way the team worked through their programme, and hopefully the aero work we did will be beneficial for the rest of the season. I'm looking forward to having another run next week and I'm only too happy to fill in any time in the future if the opportunity arises."
