TEAM HISTORY

Westfield AeroraceThe team was founded in 1996, racing 100cc TKM karts competitively at club level. This continued for 4 years through the junior age group until the move was made to seniors in 1999, allowing more power and more skilled racing. 3 Years were spent in the senior ranks including race wins, until late 2002 when the team took a sabbatical for a few years until 2006 in order to focus its attentions on other exploits.

In this time the team acquired a Ducati 748 which has seen action on a few of the country's major tracks including Donington, Croft and Silverstone.

In 2006 the team took the plunge into Karting once again, this time in the Rotax Max class. The 125cc liquid cooled 2 stroke engine produced a great deal more power than the 100cc air cooled units used in the TKM class, and coupled with softer tyres and a stiffer, more robust chassis, the result was much faster racing. Racing continued at various levels from early 2006 until 2009.

MacG Racing riding the Ducati 7482006 also saw the birth of the teams latest acquisition; a 7 litre, 600bhp Ultima GTR. Ordered in the second quarter of 2006, the team constructed the vheicle in various stages, and finally completed the build of the car in 2010. Development work and closed season development testing commenced at the start of 2011.

MacG Racing Lotus ExigeIn 2010 Team entered into the Time Attack championship with the Lotus Exige S2. Running in the 3 Litre and Under Naturally Aspirated (NA) class, the team competed alongside other Lotus models, BMW's, Porsches, TVR's and a wealth of highly Modified Japanese cars including Mitsubishi Evos, Nissan Skylines, Toyota Supras and Subaru Imprezas amongst others.

The Team also bought a Westfield Aerorace in 2010, taking two 2nd places in its first outing at Rockingham in the UK Westfield Championship, and then took class wins in the Scottish Sports and Saloon Car Championships on its second outing.

MacG Racing Ultima GTRIn 2011 the Team took its first dive into endurance GT racing, competing with the Ultima GTR in the Britcar British Endurance GT Championship. In their debut year, the team finished 4th in class and 11th overall in the championship, which was an excellent result against some far more experienced teams. The off season between 2011 and 2012 was spent developing the Ultima to achieve the car's full potential, ready for another assault on the Britcar British Endurance GT Championship in 2012, as well as other selected GT race series should the opportunity arise.

That brings you up to date with the team's history. Initially it was a father – son outfit, however along the way we have had various mechanics that have helped and pitched in, and the team would like to take this opportunity to thank these people for their help and support.
