In the year 2000, Racing Engineering, based in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (near the Jerez F1 track), became the first Spanish team to participate in the legendary Le Mans 24 Hours. Since then, the Andalusian team has raced at the highest levels of motorsport, both at the national, as well as the international level.
Exceptional dedication and a pure passion for motorsports form the ethos that drives Racing Engineering in its pursuit of competitive brilliance and the base for its success. In eight years, the team has won 11 titles. A record for every motorsport team within such a short period of time.
With participations and achievements in categories as diverse as the Spanish GT Championship and Spanish Formula 3, where Racing Engineering obtained the championship title for six consecutive years. Or, the World Series single seater championship, where the title was achieved in 2002, and the vice-championship in 2003, the team has not stopped growing, evolving and continuing to thrive for success and new objectives.
This was achieved during the past years as one of the strongest teams in the GP2, the category regarded as the stepping-stone to Formula 1. During these years in GP2 and F2, Racing Engineering obtained numerous victories. In 2008 Racing Engineering claimed the GP2 championship title with its Italian driver, Giorgio Pantano. Lucas Di Grassi, who participated with the Spanish outfit in 2009 GP2 season, while being Renault F1's third driver, finished the championship in third place and raced in Formula 1 in 2010. In 2013 Racing Engineering won the GP2 drivers title again, this time with Fabio Leimer.
More success followed in 2015 when Racing Engineering took second place in both the GP2 Team and Driver Championships with eight podium finishes and Alexander Rossi winning three races. 2016 saw the team once again finishing second in the Team Championship with four race wins and ten podium finishes for Norman Nato and Jordan King. For 2018 the team moved to the European Le Mans Series and it was another great year with Racing Engineering winning their debut race at the Paul Ricard 4 Hours and taking second position in both the Team and Driver Championships.
Continued expansion and development mean the Racing Engineering facilities - near Jerez in southern Spain - house state of the art, fully equipped workshops and engineering divisions.
The purpose built facilities also host a whole range of amenities: The Techno gym for driver and team fitness, a restaurant, conference facilities and one of the finest golf courses in Europe at Costa Ballena.
