Gary's season in Japanese F3 was a mixture of highs and lows but his highlight was victory in race 1 at Motegi

Unfortunately though the weather ruined the test... [Read more...]

Gary deep in thought during his GP3 test in Valencia

It was a busy couple of days after my last blog. As you will have read, I rushed off to Valencia on the Thursday. After finding out that I was testing the following day at 2 o’clock everything was a little bit hectic! We did quite possibly the latest seat fit of all time.  Starting at around half 12 at night. We finally left the track just before... [Read more...]
