This weekend saw the inaugural season for Mahiki Racing and the prestigious Lotus car brand  to open their account in the 2024 British GT4 racing Season.



Mahiki Racing started its debut season in the British and European GT4 season this year. The racing team has spent several months developing the car and infrastructure for the racing team to get where it is today. It has taken a lot of hard work and a number of months for Mahiki Racing to get to the first race weekend. 

Lotus has a rich history in motorsports, having participated and succeeded in various racing events including Formula One, where they have won multiple Constructors’ and Drivers’ Championships. Some of their iconic models include the Lotus Elise, Lotus Exige, and Lotus Evora.

Securing the final Pro-Am podium position was a commendable achievement for Ian Gough and Tom Wrigley, who piloted Century’s BMW to a seventh-place finish overall. Meanwhile, Steven Lake and Nathan Harrison showcased their prowess by clinching eighth place in Race 1 and fifth place in Race 2 for Mahiki’s Lotus, completing a solid performance in a competitive field.

The early incident at Old Hall, initiated by Robertson’s spin, resulted in several unfortunate retirements. Among those affected were RACE LAB’s Sai Sanjay, Academy’s Matt Nicoll-Jones, and Steller’s Jordan Albert, all of whom were unable to complete the opening lap. Additionally, Gordie Mutch faced challenges as he nursed his damaged Lotus back to the pits, highlighting the demanding nature of the racing circuit and the importance of perseverance in the face of adversity. 

Mahiki Racing has opted for the Lotus Emira GT4, enhanced with Aim Technolgies, for this year’s GT4 championship, aiming to excel on the track with innovation and determination.
