TEAM MODENA TARGET DONINGTON FOR BRITISH GT DEBUT

A hugely disappointed Team Modena will not be contesting the opening round of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship at Oulton Park, Cheshire, on Easter weekend after complications with the supply of their first Lamborghini Gallardo in GT3 specification from Reiter Engineering. The team are now targeting the second round of the series at Donington Park on April 21st- 22nd for their British GT debut.

"To my great disappointment our Gallardo will not be ready for the first meeting at Oulton Park," explained Team Modena CEO Graham Schultz, "due to technical and build complications at Rieter Engineering.

"We will definitely be at Donington Park, with Antonio Garcia driving for us, and that will give us another 10 days to paint and prepare the car ready for that meeting. I shall be at Oulton Park to support the British GT Championship next weekend."

Team Modena will ultimately be running two Lamborghini Gallardos in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship, the cars initially built by Reiter Engineering in Germany, before being run from the team's Lamborghini Wycombe workshops. The GT3 campaign will run alongside Team Modena's Le Mans 24-Hours and Le Mans Series 2007 schedule with their GT1 Aston Martin DBR9 from the same High Wycombe facility.

The 2007 British GT series will be held over eight meetings at the UK's leading circuits. The highly competitive series will see the Team Modena Lamborghini up against cars from famous marques such as Ferrari, Aston Martin and Porsche in the competition for GT3 class honours -and the overall title.
