After their third consecutive Championship winning, keeping them as the only title winning outfit of Formula V so far, the reigning Champions come live to us from the UK where they will reveal the fourth iteration of the team's Formula Virtual challenger - the JF-04.
Team Principal Jamie Franklin takes to the stage as the crowd begins to quieten down
"Good afternoon and welcome to the official launch of the JF-04. Thank you all for coming. Before we start, I'd just like to say that I'm thoroughly proud of the team's efforts to get the car ready before pre-season testing. It's no secret that having to fight so hard to come back from last year's struggles with reliability that this year took a little bit of a back foot, which wasn't planned. However, as usual, the team has come through to what I believe will be another great car. Personally, it's my favourite looking of the four cars we've produced thus far, and I have no doubt that we can continue to be competitive with the package we have produced. But with no further adieu, I'll pass over to the stars of last year, both Elroy and Enrique,"
2015 World Champion Elroy Wagner takes to the stage
"I'd like to say first that I'm really thankful to the team for allowing me the opportunity to be in contention for the Championship last year. I was a little worried that when Team 23 decided to fold, that I may be left without a drive, so I never thought that I'd be in such a competitive car and standing here as Champion a year later. Obviously with the push for this year, we've been very quiet on the media front but for sure, I'm happy with being retained for this year and hope I can push to be the first two time Formula Virtual driver's Champion,"
2014 World Champion Enrique Ruiz pats Elroy Wagner on the back as he takes over the mic
"I share the same sentiments as Elroy and Jamie. We've been pushing so hard after our victory last year. We haven't really had any time to celebrate, but I'm sure it's going to be worth it. I didn't quite have the year I wanted in 2015, despite driving better than I ever have, for sure, but this year we need to take it to the next level and fight for that fourth Championship for the team, and the second for either myself or Elroy...preferably me though,"
Franklin, Einarsson, Wagner and Ruiz each take a corner of the sheet covering the car as music begins to sound through the room, as they ready themselves to reveal the car that will hold the Championship's hopes...
