With his previous experience as a member of the MG works squad in 2001/ 2002, Warren Hughes was an obvious candidate to join Mike and Tommy in the RML MG EX264 for Le Mans in 2005.

On his debut at Le Mans in 2001 Warren placed the EX257 on pole position in the LMP675 class, co driving alongside Anthony Reid and Jonny Kane. They were back again the next year, running as high as third overall before a gearbox malady sidelined their charge.

Warren has been described as "one of the best drivers outside F1", and his record suggests that a career alongside the likes of Rubens Barichello and Jacques Villeneuve - both of whom he comprehensively demolished during his F3 career - should have been his just reward. Instead we're delighted to see him in sportscars, although he still retains the best statistical record ever achieved in F3, with 19 wins from 24 starts when he took the title in 1990.

Two years ago success came his way at the wheel of a Team LNT TVR T400R, with a GT2 win at Spa in April's LMES 1000 kilometers. In 2006 he had a less rewarding Spa outing in one of LNT's Panoz Esperante, when his race ended an hour before the finish following a chance meeting with a Ferrari 430 at the Bus Stop. He also raced for LNT in the British GT Championship, the ALMS, and was expected to be a member of their squad at Le Mans. By strange twist of fate, however, he ended up co-driving one of RML's closest rivals in the LMP2 category - the Antonio Simoes Motorsport (Chamberlain) Lola B05/40 #39. He subsequently returned to LNT duties, and was impressive at Donington Park in Round 4 of the Le Mans Series (August 27th 2006) when helping the #81 Panoz to an impressive victory in GT2.

This year, 2007, Warren has secured a full-time drive in the Le Mans Series with Embassy Racing, sharing the team's Radical SR9 with Kiwi Niel Cunningham. For Le Mans however, he returns once more to the Lola seat he occupied in 2006; co driving the #40 Quifel ASM Lola B05/40 with Miguel Amaral and Miguel de Castro.They remain one of RML's closest rivals in the 24 Hours.

In the past Warren's association has frequently been with the MG brand, not only racing the XPowered-prototypes, but also giving the marque some rare victories in the British Touring Car Championship. Even before that, back in 1999, he was racing MGs, adding the MGF crown to his many achievements.

Warren is married with one child and lives in Sunderland.
