Nigeria is now ready to participate in major motor racing events! And we even have a new team called Nigeria Racing Eagle (NRE)!
According to CNN, London-based entrepreneur, Ribi Adeshokan, has entered his country into the lavish and highly-competitive world of car racing and has ambitious plans to drive African motorsport and build a multi-million dollar racing industry on the continent.
The Nigeria Racing Eagle team says it hopes to compete at major motor racing events over the next few months, including the FIA GT3 series and sports car endurance races.
Adeshokan, who unveiled a green and silver Audi R8 LMS as the team’s car at the London Olympics, says his team will proudly “fly the flag of Africa,” being the first Nigerian racing team to represent the continent at world motorsports.
