Ian Walden the team Crew Chief commented - In the past we've done everything in house, building preparing and running the car. As a part time team, time is in short supply so the engine has been left relatively standard. Now we have a professional preparation company looking after our engines we hope to make up some of our BHP deficit and maintain reliability
Jamie Rogers from Castle Race engines brings years of experience preparing race engines and cars, and will not only be looking after the engine but also advising on setup and helping run the car at selected rounds.
"We are pleased to be partnering Black Cat Racing this year in the TVRCC, it hopefully won't be too long before we start seeing the results of a successful partnership"
Graham Walden who will drive the Tuscan said -This year were looking at some exciting races with lots of different TVRs all on track at the same time. I'm looking forward to renewing the battle with Marc Hockin and his 5ltr Griff and given half a chance we'll see if we can mix it with the much more powerful AJP Tuscans. The partnership with Castle Race Engines will let me concentrate on the driving rather than having to think about engines.
With the 2006 season shaping up to be a blinder it should be great to watch, and hopefully the Black Cat Racing / Castle Race Engines Tuscan will feature heavily. Graham will be reporting for the TVRCC and you should even be able to catch up on the action on men and motors.
