Adam Morgan is hoping for more consistent results in 2013 as the Ciceley Racing driver embarks on his second season in the British Touring Car Championship with his family-run team.
Morgan, who finished 19th in his debut season last year, took a best finish of eighth at Silverstone in 2012. Results progressively improved throughout the year after a disastrous start to his campaign which saw Morgan fail to finish ten of the first fifteen races.
“We’ve moved from Speedworks Motorsport to our own family-run Cicely Racing Team this year and we’re taking on every aspect,” explained Morgan. “It’s been a pretty big challenge to be honest but we’ve got there in the end.”
Morgan will begin the 2013 season at the wheel of the car which was raced by Frank Wrathall in 2011. The car has been updated to full 2013 NGTC specification and Morgan is optimistic of using the updated machinery to compete for regular points finishes.
“This is Frank Wrathall’s chassis from 2011,” said Morgan. “Everything on it is 2013-spec and we’ve managed to get a lot of weight out of the car so it is up to the 2013 NGTC standards. The livery’s come out quite well and hopefully it will stand out on TV.”
He also explains that he has been preparing to race for his own team ever since the end of 2012.
“It’s been a very busy winter. We started planning this probably a week after the last race. We literally finished it a couple of days ago.”
With updated machinery and a new team around him Morgan is bullish ahead of the new season.
“Last year was a bit of a shocker really,” he added. “I’m just looking really for consistency. I think we’ve got the speed to be running consistently in the top ten – that’s not a problem. It’s just now keeping the car on track and getting some good finishes. In order to get the most points you want to finish the races. We’re quick enough so we’ll get there.”
