CASTLES AND CARNIVALS FOR SPECTRUM
Spectrum driver Ben Norton capped off a fantastic year in his Wiltshire College prepared formula ford at the weekend with a runaway win in the Prestigious Castle Combe Carnival. After winning the 2009 Castle Combe FF1600 Championship with one round remaining, Ben concentrated his efforts on the Carnival and was rewarded with an eight second victory.
On Ben's stunning year Mike Borland said "It is great to see how the College has come on as a team, and to be able to win such a competitive Championship is a credit to Haydn Earl, his teaching staff and the students.”
The Combe Championship and Carnival wins add to Spectrum's most successful year overseas so far, with wins in the MSA Formula Ford Championship of Great Britain by Daniel Erickson, and the domination of the Scholarship class by Daniel Cammish, both drivers running out of Kevin Mills’ Gloucester based team. Borland commented “The team and drivers have been competitive all season. Congratulations to Dan on winning the Scholarship class in his rookie season; it would be great to see him back with Kev for a tilt at the Championship in 2010!”
Mike Borland will travel to the UK this week for the Formula Ford Festival to help oversee the engineering of both Scott Pye and Daniel Erickson, and is happy to see them both back as team mates. "It will be fantastic to see two young Australian drivers who started with us giving their all at the Festival. Hopefully we can continue the winning ways,” said Borland.
