Ultimate to concentrate on World Series by Renault glory in 2009
The Wellingborough based Ultimate Group have announced their intention to concentrate on securing the 2009 World Series by Renault title with Miguel Molina and Greg Mansell and as part of this long term strategy have confirmed that Ultimate Motorsport will not be contesting the British F3 International Series this season.
Ultimate made British Formula 3 history in 2008 when Michael Devaney won both rounds at Snetterton to claim the first ever Formula 3 win for the Mygale chassis and the first non Dallara victory since 2005. It was also the first win for the team in just their second season in the series.
"This was an extremely difficult decision but with the current state of the world economic climate, every company has to cut their cloth accordingly," said Team Principle Barry Walsh. "We are all extremely proud of what we achieved in just two seasons of British F3 and we certainly don't rule out a return to the category in the future. However our World Series team USR has been setting the pace in pre season testing and with Miguel Molina and Greg Mansell we have a good shot at both the team and driver's title; so this is where our focus for 2009 must lie. Looking to the future we are also planning to contest the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 from 2010 to run alongside our World Series team. Ultimate will continue to provide aspiring young drivers with a clear motorsport ladder from karting right up to the ultimate goal of Formula One."
