MILESTONE: Wolf Racing Cars enters NSW in 2022
A milestone for Italian-made Wolf Racing Cars has been reached with the first car, a GB08 Tornado S entering the New South Wales (NSW) market, with local racing driver Ryan Godfrey at the wheel.
Godfrey, a driver for two years, has primarily competed in NSW Supersports, but with the switch to a Wolf Racing Car he will contest a national championship in the Australian Prototype Series and NSW Supersports for 2022.
Ryan’s switch from a Radical to a Wolf Racing Car was easy!
“I first saw the Wolf GB08 Tornado about 12 months ago at Sydney Motorsport Park, competing in the Australian Prototype Series. From the moment I saw the Wolf, I was interested and I followed the brand closely.When the Tornado S model came out, I made the decision to upgrade from a Radical to a Wolf,” Godfrey explained.
“The Wolf is a fast prototype with cutting-edge technology, but the biggest selling point for me was the advanced safety technology. The Wolf’s safety is second to none, backed by a carbon fiber monocoque, which is FIA approved. , as well as the incorporation of FIA-approved carbon and kevlar honeycomb front and rear crash structures.Most other NSW Supersports series cars are built with either a steel or chromoloy-style chassis old with fiberglass or semi carbon fiber coverings my car is full carbon fiber built to FIA spec which I think is pretty cool to be able to bring this kind of technology to NSW competitors Supersports on February 26, 2022. It is comforting to drive a car at these speeds with this level of safety and protection, backed by proven testing, simulation and research.
Godfrey completed his ‘shakedown’ at Bend Motorsport Park in January, with Wolf Racing Cars owners Ivan and Maurizio Bellarosa flying in from Italy to provide data advice and assistance. Godfrey said not only was it comforting as a new owner of a Wolf, but it demonstrated the passion behind the cars and the brand.
Godfrey will be supported by local motorsport team, Nathan and his team, Tigani Motorsport. Tigani, a highly successful karting and racing mechanic with extensive experience and knowledge in the motorsports industry, so it was an easy decision for Godfrey to have Nathan to support his switch to a Wolf racing car. .
“Nathan has settled down with a fantastic workshop south of Sydney, as well as a new hauler, which will be key to our national racing campaign.” Godfrey asserted
“I’m excited for a year of learning and fun! Learning a new aero, new car setup, all while having fun – what more could you ask for!” Godfrey said
Godfrey will also be supported by Jam Motorsport, the sole Wolf Racing Car distributor in Australia.
