Airwaves Racing Assessing Running Third Focus

1 Mins read

Airwaves Racing team manager Oly Collins has professed the BTCC team's aim of running a third Ford Focus “sooner rather than later” in the second half of the 2011 season.

Collins' comments come after a test session at Brands Hatch where both Jonny Adam and George Richardson had the chance to drives one of the team's NGTC-spec Mountune engine powered Ford Focuses.

“We would like to run 3 cars at some stage this season and we’re hopeful to do it sooner rather than later, as usual it all comes down to having the right package to do the job,” said Collins. “We have 3 cars so it makes sense, but to cover the spares package we would have to invest some more. We certainly don't want to do it half-heartedly. Jonny has experience with our team and with front wheel drive turbo charged cars. We know he’s quick and there is some unfinished business there. So fingers crossed and watch this space.”

Adam drove for the Motorbase Performance run squad under their previous guise, fielding BMWs, in 2009 and is this season part of the Avon Tyres British GT Championship with Beechdean Motorsport.

Richardson is part of Motorbase's presence in the Porsche Carrera Cup GB.

Airwaves Racing have enjoyed a promising opening half to the 2011 season, their first with the Ford Focus. Driver Mat Jackson has three wins to his name and lies second in the championship. The team, which also includes BTCC rookie Liam Griffin, lie third in the teams' championship.

Airwaves Racing and the rest of the BTCC grid return from a six week break on August 6-7 at Snetterton, Norfolk.
