Michael’s racing career only started in 2017 when at the age of 32 he entered the Ginetta G40 GRDC Cup, winning the championship at his first attempt. He continued his winning ways in 2018 by becoming the Ginetta G55 Supercup AM champion at his first attempt. This has all been made possible by the generous donations of our brand supporters.
Michaels meteoric rise up the motorsport ladder has not gone un-noticed. During the year the racing has been watched trackside by over 380,000 trackside spectators and on TV by over 19 million viewers in the UK alone and 350 million globally.
Michael has been interviewed on local TV and live radio on numerous occasions and appeared in countless motorsport magazine articles, newspaper articles and social media tweets.
Michael has also been involved in the judging of racing events, giving school assembly talks to the next generation of would be racing drivers, again, he always wears his team ware showing off the brands. He has become a firm fan favourite amongst the fans, he always makes every effort to connect with them on social media and trackside.
In 2019 Michael had another amazing season of racing, he finished the season as highest scoring rookie driver on 11 points albeit with probably the oldest race car on the grid, the VW Passat CC. BTC Racing compete using one of the newest cars on the grid, the Honda Civic type R FK8 which scored 3 wins and 5 additional podiums in the 2019 season.
We are of course delighted to have this opportunity to be in a front running car for the 2020 season.
