Embassy Racing team principal Jonathan France has announced that he is to restructure the organisation of team as he continues to plan for the future of the British GT Championship race winning outfit.

Having decided to bring the team 'in house' at the start of the year, France has now elected to make changes to the team to try and improve consistency in the latter part of 2005 and into 2006.

France himself will take more of an active role in day-to-day decisions about the team and its Porsche 996 RSR, with Jody Firth sharing team manager responsibilities - with current team manager Doug Bebb and special projects manager John Christie both leaving the team with immediate effect.

Geoff Kingston will continue in the role of Technical Director, ably assisted by junior race engineer Pablo Cangini.

"The decision to restructure is a positive one," France said. "I have seen the team grow from day one and watched things develop to where they are today. It was always my intention to take a more active role when the time was right. I feel that my experiences now give me the qualifications and insight to move the team forward.

"I would like to thank Doug and John and the rest of the team for getting us so far in such a short time, but now we need to kick on and the restructure will allow us to do that. I am very excited about the changes and looking forward to a successful conclusion to this season - and more importantly to be better prepared for 2006, wherever we spend it."
