As an engineer, Lee appreciates the Riley for its technology, handling and aerodynamics. He’s the second owner of the car, which was built for private sales rather than professional racing, and has been kept in private hands, and so not subjected to the wear and tear of typical modern race cars.
Lee raced his Trans Am ’98 Mustang for a while but wanted to move up into a proper race car. The Riley MK XII has a tubular steel chassis, composite body and 500bhp-600bhp V-8 engine.
Interestingly, Lee considered a competitor for coverage based on price, but Andrea Inman in PCS worked with him and his loyalty as a 9-year client with us prevailed.
Lee’s is the first car delivered in the series. It is in pristine condition, fully sorted and ready to race. We're happy to have him.
