MACAW Motorsport welcome Ian Williamson to the team…
Big news here at MACAW Motorsport as we welcome experienced driver and podium finisher from Brands Hatch – Ian Williamson to the MACAW Motorsport team as our 4th driver…
Ian Williamson comes from a karting background and can still be found often competing in endurance karting events like the Le-Mans 24hrs Kart Race amongst other big events. Ian entered circuit racing in 2016 with his Citroen Saxo VTR in the Stock Hatch Championship, finishing a fantastic 5th place overall in his first season of racing. He went on to compete in Class C of the Hot Hatch Championship in 2017 but could only manage to attend 3 of the rounds. The start of the 2018 Season saw Ian work closely with the MACAW team and with the help of Mark Freeman added various upgrades to the car and managed to resolve handling issues which had plagued the car during the 2017 season.

MACAW Motorsports Testing…
MACAW Motorsport drivers Paul Kaynes and Rob Fagg headed down to what ended up being a fairly wet and slippery test day at Brands Hatch. This was the first opportunity for Paul & Rob to blow off the winter cobwebs and fully test the various winter upgrades both drivers had made.
The day started out very wet and led to come difficult driving conditions for both drivers, providing a great opportunity to test the handling of both cars in their wet setups. This provided some positive steps forwards in the development of both cars and enabled Chief Mechanic Mark Freeman of Mark Freeman Race Car Prep to adjust the cars and identify areas for improvement.
After the lunch break the circuit dried up for about an hour before further rain and hail changed the conditions again. But all told this was a very productive day for the team and next up will be Donington GP…
