MG is returning to international motorsport in an exciting move which could see the iconic marque taking part in the world’s most famous endurance race.

MG Motor UK has teamed up with Team RLR, which runs an MG Lola EX265 sports prototype in the Le Mans Series of endurance races throughout Europe.

Next year the Bolton-based team hopes to take part in the Le Mans 24-hour race and will use this season to gain valuable racing experience. The next round of the 2011 Le Mans Series takes place at Silverstone on September 11 when the MG Lola, carrying the famous MG octagon logo, will fight it out for six hours in the LMP2 class against some of the top racing teams in Britain.

News of MG’s return to international racing was announced recently when Team RLR and the MG Lola visited MG Motor UK’s factory at MG Birmingham.

The MG Lola sat alongside the recently launched MG6 Magnette sports saloon and the MG6 GT fastback as details of the motorsport deal was announced.
