Team highlights:

A year after they launched Cadena won the 2004 British GT Cup Class Dunlop Superpole Award at their first attempt and claimed three race wins, four podiums and majority fastest race laps.

In 2004 the team thoroughly reworked a Lotus Motorsport Elise, making it the most advanced example of its type in the world. In 2005, the team raced a Mosler MT900R and, amongst other results, won the Inaugural Tag Heuer GT250 race at the launch of the worldwide A1GP Series.

Other results included a win in a one-off return to the Lotus Roadsport Series, in a Lotus built by the team. 2006 heralded a return to Lotus, with the team winning the British GT Championship, with a dominant display against such marques as Ferrari and Porsche.

2007 was a learning year for the team, taking delivery of a brand new Aston Martin DBRS9. Highlights include a front row qualifying spot at Thruxton.
