Mundill Racing reveals ALMS plans

Star Mazda outfit Mundill Racing has revealed plans to make a move into the American Le Mans Series later in 2009 ahead of a full year in the series next year.

The team, co-owned by David Mundy and Jeff Hill, has purchased the Pescarolo-Judd as campaigned by Martin Short's Rollcentre Racing team in the Le Mans Series in recent seasons, with the car now set to travel to the States to become the latest addition to the LMP1 class.

The team expects to run the car as it ran in Europe, thereby bringing the Judd engine into the ALMS, with Mundy admitting that the prove history of Pescarolo had been key to the deal taking place.

“Being a part of the ALMS circus for the last two years has been an interesting experience,” he said. “We have enjoyed every series we have raced with in one way or another. Every series has strengths and weaknesses. From the first time we went to an ALMS race though, Jeff and I have wanted to explore racing one of the prototypes.

“Recently we have agreed to acquire a Pescarolo Judd from Rollcentre Racing. Rollcentre Racing has been wonderful to deal with on the other side of this transaction. Martin Short has been straightforward and a gentleman. A combination of things led us to choose the Pescarolo. One was the cars design and history of finishing races. Pescarolo has a proven history of being both competitive and reliable. Additionally they have this history with private teams, not just the factory efforts.

“Similar things can be said about Judd engines as about Pescarolo. Judd has been very supportive and very much wants one of their motors in the ALMS. I wish we could help them be there sooner than we will be able to.

“Our hope is to enter races toward the end of the 2009 season. Mundill then plans to run the 2010 ALMS season.”

Mundill also intends to continue with its Star Mazda programme through 2009 'and beyond'.
