MOTEC AND SPECTRUM DASH TO 50
When Icon Motorsport’s Ben Morley takes delivery of the Spectrum 011c in which he will contest the 2008 Australian Formula Ford Championship, he will receive the 50th Spectrum produced by Borland Racing Developments fitted with a MoTeC ADL or SDL Dash Logger. BRD was the first Formula Ford manufacturer to adopt the Australian owned and developed Dash Logger and has been a stalwart supporter of the product ever since. Adding to this milestone achievement, MoTeC celebrates its 21st year in business during 2008.
‘From the first time we used the MoTeC Dash Logger we were impressed by its functionality and after sales support. We have used it not only to develop our racing cars, but also to short cut the learning curve for new drivers. We can overlay data from more experienced drivers and show them exactly what they need to do to improve,’ said BRD managing director Michael Borland. He also takes inspiration from MoTeC’s international success: ‘Our businesses have shared a similar challenge in establishing an Australian product in an industry which has a traditional European bias. As we are working to grow our presence in international markets, it is very encouraging to see how successful MoTeC has been; I will need to look through their data and see what I can learn from their success!’
MoTeC founding director Richard Bendell is equally pleased to have the Spectrum utilise their products. ‘I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world with my business and can say that the cars Michael builds are as good as anything you will see. We congratulate BRD on this milestone and wish them continued success, particularly with their international program. Interestingly, they are assisting our European marketing efforts, with MoTeC Dash Loggers appearing in the UK Formula Ford market for the first time as a result of being standard fitment in the Spectrum chassis.’
