In December 2009 LDC invested to support the creation of one of the new Formula One racing teams led by two notable British firms, Manor Motorsport and WR Technology, to compete for the first time in the 2010 FIA Formula One World Championship. Virgin Racing was born. Since that time LDC has worked alongside the team to develop a team able to compete at the highest level. The new partnership with Marussia has now taken this organisation to the next level.
