HUNTINGDON-based racing car-to-composites manufacturer Lola Group has announced that Lola Cars managing director Robin Brundle will be stepping out of the day-to-day running of the group and will be working with Lola’s executive chairman, Martin Birrane, on “key and exciting business opportunities through 2012 and beyond”.

Mr Brundle said "We have generated some significant opportunities over the past three years, and some now require additional time allocation from the Lola executive team to bring them to fruition."

Mr Birrane added "This is a necessary step to take, and I would like to reassure all customers that actions have already been taken to manage the ongoing business. There will be a separate announcement around this in due course."
