Lamborghini Racing Team UK is a new Company and is part of the MTECH Group.
Mike Edmonds, M.D. and Team Principal: " Iʼm very pleased that we have been able to seal the deal for the Gallardo."

"The car will be a big step up from the Ginetta that Jake has been driving recently though Iʼm confident that it wonʼt be too big a step too soon. Heʼs a quick young driver and someone weʼve long had an interest in and Iʼm sure that heʼll get all the assistance and advice he nee
