RML are pleased to announce that Nathan Kinch will join the team for this year's Le Mans 24 Hours. Nathan will line-up alongside Mike Newton and Tommy Erdos in the teams Lola MG Prototype.

Nathan is familiar with Le Mans having tested and qualified for the race in 2003 with Lister Racing. His Le Mans race debut was curtailed when his team mate crashed the car during qualifying, sustaining too much damage to repair for the race.

At 21 years old Nathan has an impressive track record in sportscar racing. This includes 16 wins and 6 pole positions in the 2001 European Ferrari 360 Challenge and the UK Ferrari Maranello Challenge. In 2002 he drove a Saleen to victory in the British GT Championship and also had three podiums from five rounds. He won his first race in a Historic Group C Jaguar XJR-16 at Silverstone in 2001 and went on to win two of the three races he entered in the 2002 Historic Group C Championship.

RML's Commercial Director Daryl Cozens commented "We are very pleased to have Nathan as part of our Le Mans programme. Last year he proved that he has the ability to win at an international level and I think he will fit in well with the RML team".

The recent appointment of Peter Elleray has further strengthened the engineering group on the project and will see the team benefit from his extensive Le Mans experience. Peter was Chief Designer of the 2003 Le Mans winning Bentley Speed 8 and will oversee the engineering of the RML Lola MG Prototype.
