Mit­tell to de­fend ti­tle with new model of home-built sports-racer

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Reign­ing RGB cham­pion Scott Mit­tell will at­tempt to de­fend his ti­tle in a new car de­signed by his fam­ily com­pany.

The MC-53 is the third com­plete car that Mit­tell Cars has pro­duced and two will race in the 750 Mo­tor Club cat­e­gory this year. Oliver He­witt will drive the other for VR Mo­tor­sports.

There is a third one in build and the com­pany aims to of­fer kit car pack­ages with it in the fu­ture. Test­ing of the new car is now un­der­way ahead of the first round at Oul­ton Park on April 2.

“At the end of last year we won the cham­pi­onship but we had al­ready started designing a new car,” said Mit­tell. “We’ve been work­ing on it for 18 months. We’ve con­cen­trated on the body­work and were try­ing to im­prove the aero­dy­nam­ics and downforce with less drag.

“We’ve com­pleted a cou­ple of tests and it seems to be do­ing ev­ery­thing we ex­pect it to.

“We had a few small is­sues but you ex­pect that with a new car. The tar­get is to try and de­fend the ti­tle and it would be nice to get some wins with the other car.”
