Adam Morgan thrilled with new Mercedes

Adam Morgan was overjoyed at the running he and his WIX Racing team were able to complete in their first test with their new Mercedes A-Class at Silverstone on Thursday.

Morgan, who has previously raced in the British Touring Car Championship in Toyota Avensis’, completed 75 laps of the Northamptonshire venue’s International circuit – the home of the British Grand Prix – with a full day of dry running allowing the team to gain valuable data about their new machine.

“The car is Mega,” exclaimed Morgan. “The Car’s agility transferred to a fluid change of direction with ease and it just performed fantastically well.

“There is still a lot of work to do yet, but the first test proved we are developing and progressing the car on schedule. Paul Ridgeway and his team have done a fantastic job with this car and I am now even more excited about the season ahead.”

“The car’s performance and braking results were good – it was a very productive first test, giving an even stronger foundation to build on,” he said.  “We were running on the International circuit so we weren’t able to do any direct time comparisons to last season, but the test definitely delivered some very valuable data.”

Despite the return of two former champions and a grid boasting no fewer than twelve race winners, the 25-year-old was confident that he will be able to compete when the racing begins.

“I am not underestimating the incredible competition that this year presents, but I am confident that I am ready physically and mentally, and I’ll have a mega car to compete with,” said Morgan.

The family outfit will also test next week at Brands Hatch, and are eager to complete similar running to compare themselves to other teams and boost their prospects ahead of the first round of the season, which takes place at the Kent circuit on 29th/30th March,

“I am happy with the car today, but mindful of the work still to be done,” said Team Manager Russell Morgan. “We collected a lot of great information and Adam really gave the Mercedes its first challenge.

“We are now focused on getting the car ready for testing again at Brand Hatch on Tuesday 11th, where we will be able to see how our race pace compares, leading up to the first qualifying of the season on the 29th March.”
