TEAM NEWS: Ultimate Motorsport expect their competitive pace to continue on hom eshores this weekend when they chase a double points finish in the fourth round of the Lloyds TSB Insurance British F3 International Series at Snetterton.
The team have surprised their rivals since their debut race on Easter weekend and head to Snetterton on the back of a double points finish on the streets of Bucharest two weekends ago.
They have now scored points in four of their first six races with the previously un-raced Mygale-Mercedes machine and drivers Michael Devaney and Esteban Guerrieri are looking for more in Norfolk this weekend.
A recent move from East Haddon to a new base near Sywell, Northamptonshire, made for an added workload on top of the usual car preparation on the return from Bucharest but the team are still ready to attack on track this weekend.
Team manager Jonny Ostrowski said: "We have been steadily progressing and this weekend we will have the first aero developments on the car from our partners at Mygale.
"The team unit is becoming stronger all the time and both drivers have been pushing hard both on the track and off. We had a good test at Snetterton at the beginning of the month so we are looking forward to the weekend!"
Irishman Devaney and Argentine team-mate Guerrieri picked their way around the narrow street circuit in Bucharest two weekends ago to deliver the best performance of the team to date.
Both were on the lead pace for most of the weekend, Devaney setting the fastest lap in the second of the two races, but despite delivering their first top ten grid positions and coming home with points finishes the results did not reflect the full story.
Devaney said: "We raced really well in Bucharest and should have come away with even better results than we did, so that is extremely encouraging and we want to take that attitude to Snetterton this weekend.
"The car is improving at every race and we will be getting more new parts for this weekend so we expect it to go even better. We knew when we started that we had a lot development potential in the Mygale, probably more than our rivals have in their cars at this stage, and we are showing that right now."
Guerrieri added: "This weekend should be an exciting one for Ultimate Motorsport. We did well in Bucharest but had unfulfilled potential which we hope to show this time around. I am looking forward to it.
"The new factory is excellent and the guys have been working really hard to keep the team moving forward. We are doing that, and we are hoping to make another step forward at Snetterton. Just wait and see."
