Australian Race Debut for Futureracers!

13 February 2004 -- Futureracers will make their Australian race debut in around a week at the Morgan Park Raceway in Queensland, when Team Killa.com.au, lead by experienced campaigner, Mike Kilpatrick, will race in the Queensland State Motor Racing Championships over the weekend of February 20-22!

The hottest ticket in town at the moment, it seems, is behind the wheel of a Futureracer! With less than three months to the opening Futureracers event, buyers are queuing up to purchase one of these race ready rockets!

"The whole team is really fired up for the opening round of the Formula Green Futureracers Series," said Managing Director, Khaled Al Zubeidy. "I think we are going to have an ultra competitive field taking the green flag at Oran Park. The feedback that we have been receiving from most people has been very positive and it will be a very hotly contested series."

"Futureracers have a number of cars that are waiting ready to go. As soon as we receive finance for the vehicle, our team will set to work in finalising a race-ready, turn key package," enthused Khaled. "At only $38,950 (+GST) purchase cost and around $2-3,000 running costs per round, Futureracers represents one of the most economical racing categories in the World. For those who may not have the finance up front, the finance package through our financial partner, Dragon Financial, is also an option." It also can't be forgotten that every Futureracers Motorsport Package includes an exclusive driver training package through Team Brock Driving Life -- the driver training arm of the Team Brock PROCAR operation.

The Queensland State Motor Racing Championships race meeting at Morgan Park over the weekend of February 20-22 represents a significant milestone for Futureracers, one that has been a long time coming.

"We are extremely excited about the Australian Race Debut of Futureracers in just over a week's time," Khaled stated. "Although our focus is squarely on preparing cars to support the PROCAR Champ Series, if our competitors wish to race their cars on off weekends in State Championship races and the like, we certainly aren't going to stop them, in fact we will encourage them. The more that we have our cars out in the public eye, the better for our business, as we are keen to see how the Futureracers can perform against other cars in a similar category. Our thoughts are they will be superior, but we won't know that until we prove it on the track!"

Futureracers will be conducting a Test Day at Morgan Park Raceway, near Warwick in Queensland on Thursday February 19, 2004. The cost of the day (per driver) is $350 which grants the driver 3 sessions behind the wheel -- one two-lap session at a controlled pace behind a pace car, and two sessions at the driver's own pace of approximately 5 laps (possibly more) duration.
