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