Scud Racing to expand for remainder of ‘09

Scud Racing has announced an expansion to two cars for the remainder of the 2009 Australian F3 Championship season. 

The team will enter their Dallara F301 – Spiess Opel chassis in the National class for experienced British driver Peter Kalpakiotis, starting with the Queensland Raceway – Oran Park doubleheader later this month. Kalpakiotis will also contest the 2009 title decider at Sandown in November. 

The Scud Racing Dallara F301 is the same car Tim Macrow used to score multiple pole positions and podium finishes in the early days of his F3 career, and has since been completely rebuilt and repainted in readiness for its on-track return for the first time this year. The same car finished on the outright podium in the F3 SuperPrix at Symmons Plains last year.

To cater for the additional car, Scud Racing will add to its staff roster for the remainder of the year with experienced Formula 3 engineer Eden Simonini adding to the teams' already strong crew.

“Part of our plan at Scud Racing has been to return to being a two-car team,” Scud Racing owner Bill Maddocks said. 
“We have proved this year that we are now contenders for race wins at every round, and we are fighting very hard for the championship as well. Now we're continuing our plans by adding a second car and we're really happy to have Peter onboard for the remainder of the year. 

“Peter has plenty of experience in these cars so we expect him to work well with Eden and be up to speed quickly. He is looking forward to coming 'down under' and has seen not only how competitive it is here, but how affordable Australian Formula 3 is relative to other F3 series' around the world. 

“He has told me how much he is looking forward to it, and we are looking forward to meeting him and working with him for the remainder of 2009.”
