Adrian Newey will return to the wheel of a Lamborghini Gallardo to take part in the Blancpain Endurance Series at Silverstone this weekend.

The Red Bull technical director is an keen amateur racer who regularly takes part in historic events and last year competed in the Lamborghini Blancpain Super Trofeo for the first time. He is returning this weekend to share the No.1 VIP car with Autosprint's editor-in-chief, Alberto Sabbatini

The series press release added: "Adrian acknowledges that he became captivated by Lamborghini at the tender age of ten after a visit to his local cinema where he witnessed the Roger Beckermann character in the opening scenes of The Italian Job driving a distinctive orange Miura above Aosta in the Italian Alps to the soundtrack of Matt Munro before meeting his untimely screen-death in the Grand St Bernard tunnel."
