Advanced Composites Group Ltd. (ACG, Heanor, U.K.), a member of Umeco Composites Structural Materials – a division of Umeco plc, reported on Sept. 20 that the Quantum Racing Team won the 2011 Audi MedCup TP52 Circuit Series. The boat, built by Longitud Cero, was manufactured using ACG’s VTM260 series prepregs.

We are sure that all involved are enjoying the moment and are already planning future ventures.”
