Wild Water Group sponsored racing driver, Jake Rattenbury, will race at Silverstone in the European Le Mans Series (August 2018)
Jake Rattenbury, two-time Lamborghini World Champion and winner of the 2017 GT Cup, will step up to the prestigious European Le Mans Series this August in the UK leg of the championship at Britain’s most famous track, Silverstone, thus cementing the next step in the ladder towards his goal of entering the famous Le Mans 24 Hours race.
On the same weekend, Jake will share the track with famous names such as Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button. This marks the biggest race for Jake since he sustained serious shoulder damage, resulting in a complex operation to rebuild it in January 2018.
“It’s great to be able to get the support to race on home soil and gives me an opportunity to be surrounded by all of my sponsors, friends and family, who are coming to watch, which will be fantastic!” said Jake
Jake recently made the switch from GT cars to Prototypes and is already proving his worth in the VdeV series in Europe.
As well as VdeV and European Le Mans Series, Jake is hoping to finalise the chance to race in the Asian LeMans Series later this year, making trips to Japan, China, Malaysia & Thailand.
The success of 2017, having finished on the podium 18 out of 20 times in the GT Cup, has pushed Jake to take the next step in his career and compete at the highest level of endurance racing in Europe.
He has his sights then firmly set on competing in the Le Mans 24 hour in 2020.
