WEST NEWBURY, MASS. (February 26, 2003) -- Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship driver Matthew McDonough, of West Newbury, Mass., is excited about the upcoming Zetec Championship season. For the second consecutive year, McDonough will contest the entire Zetec Championship season with GTP Engineering and motorsport specialist Glenn Philips.

Entering the 2003 season, confidence is at an all-time high, with McDonough believing he is in position for the most successful season of his racing career. The team has worked extensively throughout the off-season, looking to build on the podium finish scored at Mid-Ohio in its final race of 2002. Focusing on the newly introduced wing and tire package, McDonough has attended an SCCA Club Racing event and conducted several tests. From these activities the team has gathered extensive data and information, which has proved extremely beneficial.

"I can't wait for the season to start," said McDonough. "I really like the new package and I think we've got a very good baseline setup to work from. I know the competition will be fierce in the Zetec Championship, but I think we showed at Mid-Ohio that we have what it takes to be a front-runner."

With title sponsorship from TASC Technical Services, McDonough will drive the No. 6 TaschTech.com GTP Engineering Van Diemen Ford at the 2003 season-opener, March 13-14, at Sebring International Raceway.

The 2003 Formula Ford 2000 Zetec Championship will consist of twelve races across the U.S.A., with feature races in support of the Bridgestone Presents the Champ Car World Series Powered by Ford.
