I was at Oulton Park today to witness Team WFR take another win in the SPEED series. I witnessed a cracking drive by both Warren Hughes and Jody Firth, at the half way stage Warren had lapped the whole field (which was quite easy as there was only 7 cars in the 3 hour race, one of which dropped out after 5 laps).

There was some mid race drama just as Jody took over the car as the heaven open and there was one hugh down pour. Just as this happen the safety car was called for to enable them to recover a car that had run out of petrol. Due to the safety car and pit stop to switch on wet tryes the car lost the lap they have gained. I had to leave before the end of the race, but I notice that Jody pulled out a minute on the second place car to take another win.

I had a quick chat with Jody at lunchtime and he said that they enjoyed there run in Portugal last weekend (however it was one the worst car's that both him and Warren had driven). He also said that the plans for next year are coming along nicely.

The commitment from the experienced outfit to the series is a real positive step for SPEED and with 3 chassis set to be on track before the halfway point of the season, WFR seems determined to shake-up the CN sports car racing fraternity.

So, the 'manufacturer' programme continues with an FIA CN car. Is Peter Elleray involved?
My understanding as of a little while ago is yes.

I noticed that Team WFR have entered the British Superbike championship's this year and that the new WF03 was on display at the Autosport show last weekend.

So I did about of googling last night to see if I could find anything out there about there plan's for 4 wheel active's in 2011 and I found this press release from one of there Motorbike sponsors website - http://www.rockoil.co.uk/cm/news/115...-with-wfr.html.

The interesting part is the bit that says "WFR will also be running a GT class car racing team in 2011 and will be competing at the legendary Le Mans event amongst others." I wonder what mean's I guess only time will tell......

edit - I also see there is a article about Team WFR on DSC this morning.

Last we heard, plans were coming along nicely for a return to LMP2 this year (after Warren, Jody and Darren's FLM adventures with DAMS last year). That could still be the case, but no hint of it in the DSC article. Here's hoping.

Best of luck to them with the WF03.........it's quite a looker!

If there is something to pardon in everything, there is also something to condemn. They did it for motorsport passion!

Could have been a lucrative visit to the toilet.
