Welcome to Team ILR

About Us

Born in Wales, brought up on the world's race circuits!

In essence, Team
originated as far back as 1982 when Team Principal Ian Lougher set out on what would become, and still is, a remarkable racing career.
From those early beginnings all those years ago, both Lougher and his team have gone on to become highly respected in race paddocks around the world. 
Our emphasis is on being professional and successful, whilst creating a fun environment both within and around us, and we're justifiably proud of our ethos and reputation for nurturing and supporting riders of all ages and abilities. 

Team ILR Partners 

At Team ILR we put the emphasis on the word Team.
We would like to extend a big thank-you to our loyal, dedicated and valued team partners, and we look forward to working with you all in 2024.
