RLR MSport – 2018 European Le Mans Series Teams’ and Drivers’ Champion – is a leading light in the uppermost echelons of international sportscar racing with established and successful ELMS and Michelin Le Mans Cup programmes, as well as diverse engineering capabilities.
The Darwen, Lancashire-based outfit first entered the European Le Mans Series (ELMS) in 2010 with a Lola LMP2, before switching to ORECA machinery for a two-pronged campaign that included an entry to the 2012 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and then supporting ADR Delta’s efforts in the 2013 FIA World Endurance Championship.
Since 2016, RLR MSport has competed at the forefront of a hugely competitive LMP3 field in the ELMS and Michelin Le Mans Cup.
Its maiden LMP3 season was blighted by inconsistency, but that preceded a fruitful 2017 campaign, the highlight of which was perhaps the third place it achieved in the Le Mans 24 Hours-supporting ‘Road to Le Mans’ race at France’s legendary Circuit de la Sarthe.
Supreme consistency during a fruitful 2017 campaign, the highlight of which was perhaps the third place achieved in the Le Mans 24 Hours-supporting ‘Road to Le Mans’ race at France’s legendary Circuit de la Sarthe, ensured RLR MSport scored points in every race it contested, but with a strong and balanced roster of drivers in three Ligier JSP3s, the squad won the 2018 ELMS Teams’ and Drivers’ titles and, in doing so, secured a coveted invitation to the 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans, to be held in June 2019.
However, RLR MSport’s diverse operations extend far beyond the ELMS, as it is also known for its high-quality GT, prototype and historic racecar preparation, as well as its experience in a variety of categories, including a six-year presence in the VdeV Endurance Series.
For many years, the team has prepared and run historic racecars, from Formula 1 to F5000 single-seaters and Can-Am to Group C sportscars, in the Historic Sports Car Championship (HSCC) and at other high-profile race meetings around the world.
With state-of-the-art facilities and a skilled engineering team at its disposal, it is able to conduct full rebuilds and restorations, prepare cars for trackdays and race meetings, service and modify high performance and classic cars and offer a comprehensive racecar development service, which includes bespoke chassis and component design, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) testing and composite parts production.
