The British based F2 team have announced that the French raceboat builder David Moore has joined JRM Racing as Brent Dillard’s Crew Chief and Radioman.
David Moore said
I am delighted to join JRM Racing following Dillard signing with them earlier this year and I will be helping him with his comeback in the UIM F2 World Championship. The support of his parents Teresa and Steve is amazing and it already feels good to be part of the Dillard family, plus I can’t wait to see Dillard and Bjerknæs racing side by side this year in Moore hulls.
JRM’s Mette Bjerknæs has been racing Moore hulls since her debut in the World Endurance Championship back in 2012 and has been working closely with him ever since.
Whilst Dillard first got the taste of Rouen’s finest back in 2018 when he purchased Pierre Lundin’s F2 Championship winning Moore hull. So, having built world championship winning boats for decades he now brings with him that vast knowledge which will of course be of immense value to the team.
Having David’s expertise at every race is going to be invaluable to me and all at JRM Racing.
PRW understands that Dillard will first be competing at the opening round of this year’s NGK Spark Plugs Formula 1 Powerboat Championship, which will be roaring into Southeast Texas on April 30. The 19th annual ‘Thunder on the Neches’ powerboat race will be the highlight of the five-day Port Neches ‘River Fest’.
Following that race weekend Dillard will begin testing with his new team prior to the 2022 UIM F2 season opener in Portugal in June. Before that though JRM Racing, who are currently working on their brand-new team livery, will be competing at Carr Mill Dam in England at the end of May. PRW understand that negotiations are currently under way to allow Dillard to compete at the opening round of the CPA British National Championship.
JRM Team Principal Jamey Stallard told PRW that to have David Moore joining their team is an honour.
Not only is he a prominent figure in powerboat racing but also, he’s a first class raceboat constructor, with many world championships titles achieved in his Moore designed boats. He is just what JRM values as a team member, always striving for victories while promoting professionalism and the future of our Sport.
