Nigel Mansell and his sons Greg and Leo will team up to contest this season's Dubai 24 Hours in a Lotus Evora. The trio will be joined by factory Lotus driver Johnny Mowlem, World Touring Car independent Stefano D'Aste and Gianni Giudici in the GT4 car for the event this weekend.
"It's a great feeling to see both my boys working with Lotus and it brings back some very fond memories for me," Nigel said. "As with any 24-hour race, the event in Dubai represents a big challenge.
"What's special about the race in Dubai though is it will not only test their endurance under extreme conditions but they will have the added challenge of adapting very quickly to a relatively new car. I think they'll do well and they have some well-established drivers on the team to work with, too – so hopefully they'll all complement each other and the team dynamic will be strong. Lotus Motorsport has a great support team set up, so everyone will be working together to get the best result out of the race."
The race will be the first competitive outing for the Evora GT4, with an updated engine from Cosworth.
