Team Ford Racing head to the third round of the Bridgestone Production Car Championship, thinking along more strategic lines which should ultimately lead to victory at the Aldo Scribante race track in Port Elizabeth on 30 April 2011.

Following a great start to the season, Team Ford Racing have established themselves as the team to beat and whilst their Ford Focus STs are great examples of racing excellence, it is their mental team game that has set Ford Racing apart from the rest.

Gary Formato and Shaun Duminy are unified in their charge and have high hopes for Aldo Scribante.

“Killarney was a prime example of our strategy going forward, which encompasses unity and team spirit to out maneuver the competition. I had the pace to take victory, but crossing the finish line first and second was far more significant to our championship aspirations,” explained Duminy.

The team has been very consistent this season, with each Ford driver not only scoring points in each of the eight races, but claiming podium finishes in every race.

“The cars are strong in a straight line and handle superbly in the corners. The team are more motivated than I have ever seen them and I have high hopes for the PE event,” enthused Formato.

Outright pace and sole reliance on horsepower often leads to the deterioration of engine parts, brakes and tyres. Team Ford Racing has found a very balanced set-up on the Focus STs and this reliability is showing in the results.

Team Ford Racing has received tremendous support in both Gauteng and the Western Cape and would like to encourage Ford Fans to attend the event at Aldo Scribante on 30 April.
