RML EX257 on Show at Wicksteed Park. Issued September 10th
a big hit at Brit-Car Rally 2007
2004 MG-Lola sportscar was one of the stars of the show
at the 2007 Brit-Car Rally at Wicksteed Park, Kettering,
on Sunday (September 9).
The Wellingborough-based racing and automotive specialists
brought an immaculate EX257 chassis to the event - the same
car that competed in the 2004 Le Mans 24 Hours (right)
and Le Mans Endurance Series.
Crowds flocked to have their picture taken with the car,
with many lucky youngsters and adults taking the opportunity
to sit in the confined cockpit of the high-tech endurance
racer. They were also able to pick up some RML goodies,
with information cards, stickers and posters for bedroom
walls and memorabilia collections proving extremely popular
with visitors of all ages.
The event, which is organised by a group of motoring enthusiasts,
saw cars from famous British marques like MG, Jaguar and
TVR help to raise money for the Make a Wish Foundation
