Winning the LMP2 category at Le Mans two years in succession, and ending both the 2005 and 2006 seasons of the Le Mans Series as runners-up in their class is a considerable achievement by Thomas Erdos and Mike Newton, but it is also some testament to the skill and ingenuity of RML and the team behind the MG EX264.

Much of that credit must go to the years of experience ingrained within almost every member of the squad, alongside the motorsport heritage of Ray Mallock Limited and the technological input from world-leading companies like Dedicated Micros and TransVu. Along the way there have been breakthroughs and developments that have, on occasion, given Tommy and Mike a competitive edge. Some of those must, of necessity, remain secret, but one or two technological innovations have been carried forward by RML and are now marketed under their X-Pro brand. These are now available to anyone else, competitors and rivals included, and some are featured here:

X-Pro Digital Imaging Recorder
Throughout the past four years the RML EX264 has carried on board a unique CCTV system. Initially devised by TransVu, a member of the AD Group of companies for use as a security monitoring system for aircraft, buses and other forms of public transport, the system has now been further developed and enhanced in association with RML. Tested in some of the most arduous motorsport conditions imaginable, the X-Pro DIR was launched in 2006. Designed specifically around endurance racing and rallying, this is probably the most advanced and rugged CCTV system now available anywhere in the world.

X-Pro BSS Safety Seat Inserts
Driver safety is one of the cornerstones of racecar design. Cocooned within a carbon fibre monocoque, the driver is protected in a way that could never have been imagined twenty years ago, but he or she still remains vulnerable to the trauma associated with high-G impact and the intensely physical nature of accidents at speed. The degree to which those forces can be cushioned is critical to the driver's chances of surviving such an accident with the minimum of injury. The X-Pro BSS Seat Insert has been proven in tests and during real-life racing incidents to achieve this better than anything else currently available.

X-Pro Infra-Red Tyre Heating System
Having the confidence to push hard right from the beginning of an out-lap can be crucial to maintaining track position during an endurance race, and much of that confidence can come from knowing that tyres are up to temperature almost as soon as the car leaves the pitlane. Conventional tyre-warming technology cannot promise that, but the X-Pro Infra-Red Tyre Heating System can. Tyres are up to temperature within ten minutes of being placed inside the heater, and that warmth is uniform, deep and perfectly controlled. Compact to transport and easy to assemble, this is the future of tyre-heating technology, and it's available today.
