Le Mans Winners 2005 & 2006 & Le Mans Series LMP2 Champions 2007 & 2010

This website is retained as an historic archive of RML's MG Lola sports prototype project, as well as other races and events contested between 2003 and 2008.

With support from the AD Group of companies, RML introduced their MG sportscar programme in November 2003. Five full seasons in the Le Mans Series followed, with Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos campaigning the cars with great success, including two class wins in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2005 and 2006.

The campaign started with the EX257 in 2003, then following on with an all-new Judd-engined MG Lola EX264 in 2005 - a direct development of the EX257 carried out by RML in partnership with Lola and MG Cars.The following year, 2006, the EX264 employed an AER turbocharged powerplant and contested the full Le Mans Series as well as Le Mans, enabling RML to win the 24 Hours for a remarkable second successive time. In 2007 Mike Newton and Thomas Erdos went on to claim the LMP2 title in the Le Mans Series. The 2008 season saw them campaigning the fully revised and updated MG Lola EX265, culminating in the launch of the 265 Coupé in September. At the end of 2008 the link with MG was finally broken, and RML AD Group entered a new era from 2009 - see the new website. However, the EX265 remained a potent LMP2 contender, even through to 2011.
