Lowndesy to head up Aussie assault in Europe

After a storming debut in Belgium last year, Craig will be jetting to Europe to contest his second 24 Hours of Spa in an all-Aussie assault.

Taking to the wheel of the newly-built Reiter Engineering-prepared Lamborghini Gallardo EXTENSO, Lowndesy will be teamed up with David Russell, Steve Owen and car owner Roger Lago as they take on the spectacular 24 hour event at the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit.

“Naturally I am delighted to be returning to Spa, it’s the most amazing event on the best track ever,” he said.

“I learned so much last year and really wanted to go back and have another crack, and I have to thank Roger for the opportunity.

“The driving line up is incredibly strong … David is very fast and very experienced in these cars, as is Steve, and they both drove this event with Roger last year, so they also know the track and the event, and what to expect.

“Our Lamborghini will be brand new, to the very latest Reiter spec, so it’ll be a weapon for sure.”

Behind the drivers will be a formidable technical line-up as renowned engineer and former Triple Eight Director of Engineering and Production John Russell heads up the challenge.
