Hi all,

According to another thread entitled 'BTCC Gatherings', there has been a message posted saying that there will be demonstrations of the MG TF500 & the MG Lola EX257 Le Mans car at Silverstone on Monday. The TF will be on the track at around 11-ish with Mark Blundell driving it.

Presumably during the pit walkabout / autograph crush session!

Does anybody know about the EX257? ie, is it doing a demonstration? and at what time? Where was this information found?

Missed it at Rockingham, so hoping it is at Silverstone!

Hi Extreme

There is a press release about it on the x-power website.

It's supposed to be on the track at 11:15am

I can't be there this weekend so I'll have to wait until LeMans Qualifying.

Here it is - too late to incorporate into th main site:

MG Sport and Racing will be out in force at Silverstone on Monday when – in a real treat for motorsport fans – the MG Lola EX257 Le Mans car will put in some demonstration laps of the circuit. With the two MG ZS Touring cars, in their special jubilee livery, also racing in the BTCC at the meeting, Monday will be a unique opportunity to see all of MG's track challengers in one place.

With two weeks to go before the Le Mans 24 Hours, Mark Blundell will show what the LMP675 category cars can do at 11.15am, while team-mates Anthony Reid and Warren Hughes will be in track action in the two BTCC races later in the day.

Joining the MG Lola EX257 on the track will be the MG TF XPOWER 500 car, which comes complete with a high performance 500bhp Le Mans development engine

Some photographs...

Yes, I was at Silverstone, along with the EX257! Although it did not do a great deal of laps (apart from 1!!!) it was static long enough to take the following...

Enjoy!
