Trans Tasman Racing has recently signed two new rising stars from Australia. Josh Muggleton and Beau Cubis will both be joining the team for Season 4 2011 on iRacing.com. Both drivers have been advancing positions towards the front of the field in the V8 Supercar Online Series by Bigpond proving that they well and truly deserve to be top split. Of course Trans Tasman Racing’s roots extend back to Gran Turismo 5 Prologue and both of these new drivers were a big part of Gran Turismo 5.
Josh Muggleton an IT worker at a Sydney High School recently picked up his first V8 Supercar Online Series win in the inaugral Sebring night race. Josh also finished a strong 3rd in the Australian GT Academy National finals. There is no denying that Josh is a talented racer that will definitely fit in well with the existing drivers at Trans Tasman Racing.
Beau Cubis a newcomer to iRacing but not to sim racing also has been finishing strongly in the V8 Supercar Online Series. Beau made his debut in the series at Sebring in Season 3 (the race that Josh won) and ironically got involved in an incident with TT-R driver Madison Down. However, the official main race was much better for Beau finishing 4th on debut in top split. His recent top 5 results have proven that Beau will be a force to be reckoned with in Season 4. Like Josh, Beau is also an accomplished Gran Turismo 5 racer with hours of league racing experience with Australian league RaceOnOz.
Team admin Madison Down when asked was itching to get into Season 4 racing with the new team. “It’s always great going into a new season, but to do it with 2 new capable drivers on the team that will no doubt be fighting for podiums in Season 4 is awesome. I can’t wait for the season to kick off at Mosport with more TT-R cars on the grid!”
Over the coming days Josh and Beau will be settling into TT-R hopefully getting comfortable in the new cars for season 4! Trans Tasman Racing will be even stronger this season than ever before but the team will only grow stronger with rumours of more existing TT-R drivers looking at either returning to iRacing or purchasing iRacing. Question is, when and who will be joining next…..
