Nicholas Mee Racing Prepares for its Second Round-the-Clock Challenge of 2010

Further to its class podium finish in January’s Dubai 24hr race and a successful shakedown test at Silverstone in early September, NMR is busy preparing its Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 for the Britcar 24hr race which starts at 4.30pm on Saturday 2nd October.

Britcar is the UK’s biggest 24hr race and the grid will again contain some of the world’s most emotive automotive marques including Aston Martin, Lotus, Ferrari and Porsche. The longdistance race gained heightened stature when the Stig and the Top Gear presenters tackled the 2007 event in a BMW.
NMR has confirmed that its driver line-up for this year’s race will be:

• Karsten le Blanc – NMR’s regular driver since the team’s
inception, Karsten was the joint 2009 Aston Martin GT4
Challenge winner and class podium finisher in the 2010
Dubai 24hr.

• Sarah Bennett-Baggs – Experienced GT racer, Sarah has
competed successfully in several previous Britcar 24hr events
as well as for NMR in last year’s Britcar 6hr race, finishing 15th
overall out of 43 starters.

• Ben de Zille Butler – Well-known racer in Aston Martin GT3
and GT4 circles, Ben has previous Britcar 24hr experience
and raced for NMR in last year’s Britcar Snetterton 4hr.

• Dan de Zille – Cousin of Ben, Jersey-based Dan is a rising star
of the British Formula Ford championship making his
endurance racing debut with NMR.
