A Radical assault on Audi in LMP1 racing
Radical co-founder, Mick Hyde explains, "I see this as a great opportunity for a manufacturer to get involved with Radical. To date Audi have had it all their own way. Pescarolo has shown what a small team can do, but we believe that the combination of a specialist constructor like Radical and the active involvement of a manufacturer, will bring success both on the track and from a P.R. perspective."
Fellow Director and Team Bruichladdich Radical owner, Tim Greaves comments, "The SR9 of Rollcentre Racing would have been on the top step of the podium but for a racing incident and minor gremlins in the dying moments of the last two races. Our SR9 was the fastest car on the circuit in the wet at Donington and we were only knocked off pole by 2 tenths of a second, by a last minute banzai lap from Tommy Erdos. So we have proved we can make a good 'out of the box' race car. The next logical step is P1 and we are keen to do it!"
