AFTER taking a Covid-19 enforced year away from the sport Hereford-based motor racing team WRO are looking for wins this season in their improved Mini.

The family run team will be competing in the national Britcar Championship and are looking for outright wins in their highly developed turbo Mini.

This car is no ordinary Mini, it has 50 per cent more power than the ones on the roads, it has a racing suspension and runs on slick tyres.

Daniel and Sean Woodard are the two drivers for the team.

“The restrictions were such that we took the decision to not race but instead concentrate on further developing the car,” Daniel said.

“2019 was a great season and we won 40 per cent of the races we entered but we knew we had to do better.”

For 2021 the team, with the continued support of sponsors The Bucket Manufacturing Company of Chepstow, are moving up to the Britcar Championship racing at circuits such as Silverstone, Brands Hatch and Oulton Park.

The team then hope to progress the premier British GT Championship.

"We shall have to move on from the Mini in 2022," added Daniel.

"At the moment the team are looking at all the options. These includes Aston Martin, Porsche and AMG Mercedes.

"For me as a driver I just can’t wait to get my hands on any one of these thoroughbreds!”

This year the team have added a full-size race simulator, a SIM Seven to their garage to try their hand at driving a race car.

WRO have received a lot of technical help from Hereford company, TAC Coatings. There first race is on March 28, at Silverstone.
