Hart set on Spectrum Driver to USA Sebring test
Just weeks after finishing his senior year of high school, Canberra’s Mathew Hart is bound for Sebring to test a USF2000 car with championship winning team Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing as his Spectrum Driver to USA prize. Hart, runner up in the 2012 Australian Formula Ford Championship aboard his Synergy Motorsport prepared Spectrum 014, won the prize from Spectrum Racing Cars as the highest placed Spectrum driver in the Australian Championship.
Hart will claim his prize on Friday 14 December at the famous Sebring circuit. “I can’t wait to get into the Cape Motorsports USF2000 car,” enthused Hart. “I want to thank Spectrum Racing Cars and Cape Motorsports for this opportunity. To get the chance to test with the championship winning team is exciting enough; to be doing it at an iconic circuit like Sebring is almost unbelievable!”
Spectrum Racing Cars MD Mike Borland said he was pleased to be able to offer assistance to an Aussie driver trying to forge a career in motor sport. “Matt has done an exceptional job for Spectrum Racing Cars in 2012. He set the pace for most of the season and was desperately unlucky not to have taken out the title. We’ve helped drivers such as Will Power and Mark Winterbottom in the early stages of their careers and hopefully this opportunity will open up some other doors for Matt as well.”Designed and built by Michael Borland, the Spectrum chassis has been in production for more than 20 years, during which time it has scored countless Formula Ford, FF1600 and F1600 race and championship wins in its native Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the USA.
Spectrum Racing Cars are distributed in North America by Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing. Cape Motorsports with Wayne Taylor Racing was formed in 2010 as a partnership between two successful racing entities.
