Maranello UK on track for success

The Maranello UK team is showing promising signs after a successful first round of the Winter Series at PFi last Sunday (2 November).

Team Manager Elliott Green is pleased with his drivers’ performances, and believes that they are building a firm platform for success in 2009.

He said, “All the signs were very encouraging. In KF3, Josephine Ferrada Van Braeckel had one of her best meetings of the year. The conditions were very difficult and I’m pleased with the way she dealt with them, the change of chassis, different tyres, and of course working with a new team - she did a great job”

Also in KF3, Roy Johnson has signed for the team. “Roy was hugely successful in Cadets and obviously has star quality and I think he may surprise a few people next year”

Former Mini Max star Andy King has moved into the Junior Max category - and also impressed, with a strong performance in the final, finishing 4th overall.

“As ever, the Junior Rotax class is very competitive – especially at PFi – and Andy did well to come through the traffic. I think he’s got the potential to do very well next season and beyond.”
