REDDITCH racer Mike Luck and his 24:7 Motorsport team have confirmed their entry into the 2005 SCSA Racing Championship with support from Italian hand tool manufacturer Beta.

The championship, formerly Days of Thunder, saw Luck finish as runner-up in the 2004 rookie honours and he intends to build on the success of his first SCSA season.

"I am very pleased with this deal, which will help the team become a serious entry for the 2005 title," said Luck.

"Beta tools are 100 per cent behind the team and I'm confident of being competitive from the start of the first race in May.

"Last year was a steep learning curve for the whole team and we achieved a massive amount on a very limited budget."

Further support for 24:7 Motorsport will come from Luton-based silicone hose manufacturer SFS Performance after first appearing on the car last year.
