Team Ireland have confirmed Adam Carroll will drive for them in A1GP’s Chinese race on December 16th, where he hopes to keep up the team’s record of scoring points in every race.
Ireland suffered fewer troubles in the Malaysian races than Team GBR, but still feel the final result did not reflect the strength of their performance.
Race engineer Dan Walmsley said: “The whole team felt Malaysia did not reflect our true position, but we’ve bounced back and are ready to show what we can do. It’s going to be a level playing field and we’ve now sorted out a few issues we had with Adam’s seat so it’s looking good.”
Carroll said: “We’re going to go and put 100 per cent into next weekend, we know where we need to improve and hopefully we’ll be much stronger in China from the very beginning. I’m really looking forward to getting to the circuit and I’m feeling confident and excited heading into the race.”
Team owner Mark Kershaw was hopeful for the future: “I think Team Ireland has surprised a few people already this season, yet to be honest we have not really shown our true potential, so there is plenty to come. Adam is working hard and the team has never been more motivated.”
