Cars run from Lamborghini Wycombe workshops

Team Modena will be running two Lamborghini Gallardos in the GT3 class of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship in 2007. The cars will be run from the Lamborghini Wycombe workshops overseen by Team Principal Graham Schultz, with one car competing from the start of the season and the second joining in after the early rounds.

"It's an honour and a privilege for us to the be the first official Lamborghini dealer to go racing," says Graham, "and we are looking forward to the British GT season ahead. We'll have one car ready for the opening round at Oulton Park, with the second appearing three or four races into the season.

"We are very excited by this programme, GT3 and the Gallardo are natural fits with what we do at Lamborghini Wycombe, and we will be running the cars from there all year. The intention is to have Antonio Garcia in the car for the opening round, and we are hoping for a good result on our debut."

The Lamborghini Gallardos are built by Reiter Engineering in Germany, who have been working closely with Team Modena throughout the project. The GT3 campaign will run alongside Team Modena's Le Mans 24-Hours and Le Mans Series 2007 schedule with their Aston Martin DBR9 from the same High Wycombe facility.

"The campaign will be another string to our bow," says team co-owner Rik Bryan, "and it is exciting as the Lamborghini is the perfect car for us with the Lamborghini Wycombe connection.

"It is an opportunity for us to show what Team Modena can do with our automotive, engineering, R&D and race team experience."

The 2007 British GT series will be held over eight meetings at the UK's leading circuits. The highly competitive series sees 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.
