Dolby and Enge to crew Wes­sex Lam­borgh­ini

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

New sportscar squad Wes­sex Mo­tor­sport will make its In­ter­na­tional GT Open de­but this week­end with Craig Dolby and Thomas Enge han­dling its Lam­borgh­ini Gal­lardo.

Wes­sex, which is run by GT Cup and Brit­car reg­u­lar Nigel Mustill, has en­tered its Gal­lardo REX into this week­end’s round on the Sil­ver­stone Grand Prix Cir­cuit.

Mustill has raced a va­ri­ety of sports pro­to­types from Aquila and Ri­ley across re­cent sea­sons, but this will be only his sec­ond event with the new Wes­sex team.

“We’ve en­tered the GT Open to show what the Gal­lardo can do and to also give Craig [Dolby, Mustill’s long-term co-driver] a shot at some­thing on a de­cent stage,” said Mustill.

“Thomas is fac­tory driver for Reiter Engi­neer­ing, which builds the REX ver­sion of the Gal­lardo, so the deal fell in place with a lit­tle help from Reiter. Both Thomas and Craig are great driv­ers, so we’re go­ing in look­ing for the win.”

The Bri­tish round of the GT Open has also at­tracted entries from FF Corse, which will run Jamie Stan­ley and Paul Mc­neilly in the new Fer­rari488 GT3, which took a podium fin­ish in Bri­tish GT at the same track last month.
