The entire team at McElrea Racing is very excited to get started on our dual-pronged attack on the 2014 Australian Carrera Cup Championship..!!
It’s both exciting and stressful going into a new season with new cars. We are all excited to see how much faster we can go but everyone starts with a blank sheet of paper. The Engineers have no data, the Mechanics are not sure what problems to be prepared for (if any) and the drivers are not sure of the cars limits or who their biggest competition is.
As everyone knows the circuits in Australia are much different to those in Europe, generally bumpier and much hotter. Clipsal is going to be a tough introduction with the curbs giving the cars a pretty hard time and should be a good guide for the rest of the season.
In 2014 MR will be working hard to see Luff and Davies finishing in the top three with Gracie in the top ten in Pro Class and Tony Walls in the top three in Elite Class.
Luffy and Shae are true Championship contenders in the Pro Class and its about time we added a Championship to our credentials. They both did pretty well in Adelaide last year but will need to improve on their performances (Luff 4th, 4th, 8th | Davies 5th, 5th, 7th) in order the get a good start in the Championship. Wallsy will be looking to run inside the top three in the Elite class and Princess is set to continue her impressive learning curve and is bound to surprise allot of people this season. - Andy McElrea, Team Principal
