Racing Eagle set to race as the first all African team
London, England 11 March 2013 - Nigerian Racing Eagle debuts the drivers who would be competing alongside other teams at the British GT Series this season. The drivers are Ex Formula One Red Bull test driver Adrian Zaugg and Paris based Christian Ebong. Drivers also unveiled are Sam Collins, Gugu Zulu and our junior drivers Nathan Wright and Ovie Iroro.
The event was held on Friday 8th March 2013, at VANILLA in Central London UK. It was well attended by people from the Motorsport, Business and fans, and was covered by the UK and International media. There was a presentation from the Team Principal, Ribi Adeshokan who emphasise on the need for Africa to be represented in motorsport, the TV hosting rights for the series to be shown all across Africa and the sponsorship opportunities for businesses based in Africa, and those internationally who have business interests in Africa, to use Nigeria Racing Eagle as a platform to engage their stakeholders.
“It’s a great honour to represent Africa in the GT Series and finally put the Map of Africa in the world of Motorsport. I am looking forward to a great race season with Nigeria Racing Eagle”. Adrian Zaugg – Lead Driver Nigeria Racing Eagle
We are happy to welcome some new teams into the British GT family, especially our Nigeria Racing Eagle Team. Africa as we all know is an emerging country with great opportunities, I have been privileged to hold the GT series in other continents and I am sure we should be able to host a GT Series in Nigeria very soon.
