Castrol Mini squad set to score

2006-10-30 09:52
The Castrol MINI Racing team has set aside the mixed results from the previous round at Aldo Scribante in September, and go to Killarney this weekend focused on taking another 1-2 finish at the Cape Town circuit.

Class T championship leader Clint Weston took both wins in PE six weeks ago, but team-mate Garth Waberski suffered a huge setback with an electrical problem that halted him in the first race and prevented him from starting the second.

Weston however had an absolutely perfect race with two poles and two race wins.

"My car was super-fast and we beat the GTI's by almost 15 seconds. My plans for Killarney are to go as fast as possible again and secure championship points, without any funnies. We haven't made any changes to the cars - they're perfect and we're looking forward to another good result.

The Castrol MINI team falls under the supervision of BMW Motorsport Manager Danie Human, who ensures the cars are always properly prepared. He too is confident for Cape Town.

"We had a wiring problem with Garth's car in the first race at Aldo Scribante, but that has been fixed and the car is back to normal. Clint's car was perfect, and we have kept it that way for Killarney," he said.

"The season started off slowly but has gradually got more and more exciting, with the GTIs becoming more and more competitive. That being said, both Garth and Clint have had retirements this season that have affected our Championship standing to date, but we're ready to clinch a title we should already have secured at Killarney!"
