The team will be managed by Rob Sims Racing. Rob and his team
bring many years of competitive racing experience to the two-car team. The new
team came about as a consequence of a good working relationship producing
excellent race performance and results for both drivers under individual
guidance in the 2013 MINI Challenge season.
Race team manager Rob Sims said; "I am delighted that
Simon Walton (Swanflight.com) and Adrian Norman (SCALEXTRIC) have expressed
desire to be part of this team in the Mini Challenge. The team will work on
Quality, Efficiency, Detail, Low Stress, Fun and enjoyable racing. With all of
this in place then results will soon follow."
Team member Adrian Norman said; "Simon and I both worked
with Rob Sims so productively in the 2013 season that joining forces for a more
focused campaign in the 2014 MINI CHALLENGE series made perfect sense.
We are all looking forward very optimistically to a fruitful partnership. We
have a growing ground-base of support from our Scalextric fans and sponsors who
we hope will come and see us race again this year."
