Evesham based racing driver Cassey Watson will be testing the MG ZS Britcar at Wiltshire’s Castle Combe circuit this Thursday for college racing team Lunar Racing. Cassey is currently 2nd in the Mazda MX5 Championship and will be helping with important set up work for the team as they look to improve the car for the next round of the Britcar Production Championship.

Lunar Racing is an incredible initiative that allows College students to learn their craft at the top end of British Motorsport. It has been said it’s like a school football team reaching the premiership. College students built and maintain the car and even complete the ‘F1 style’ pitstops at the race circuit with tyre changes and refuelling.

Cassey is also hoping to help attract some much needed funding to the team to help achieve their dream of taking the course nationwide. She will be helping promote the team with the car at several MG events this summer, starting with the MG Festival in July at Silverstone.

Lunar Racing uses the excitement and challenge of motorsport to place Science and Engineering in a dynamic context. The heart of the Lunar Racing philosophy is to bring the classroom into the real world. This is why they compete in the professional motorsport arena.

Britcar is televised on Sky Sports and Motors TV and the team are lieing an incredible second in the championship after 3 rounds.
