2018 is set to be Team BRIT’s biggest year to date….here Social Media Manager Sally McInerney gives her thoughts on Dave Player – the man behind the team.

“This year is looking to be a momentous one, with our move into GT racing, new rookies progressing through the ranks, and some of our experienced drivers under pressure to be selected to race in the Aston Martin.

Many of you are familiar with our drivers, but behind the scenes we have an incredibly dedicated team who make all of this happen. None more so than our founder Dave Player.
Dave served as a Royal Engineer from 1993 – 1998, and after leaving the army, suffered a spinal injury. Since then he has worked extensively with businesses connected to sport, tourism and property, never letting his injury prevent him from achieving his goals.

Along with setting up Kartforce, he founded Team BRIT and is the driving force behind the whole operation. Dave’s determination is infectious, nothing is impossible in his eyes and this is what motivates and powers every aspect of Team BRIT. As a relative newcomer to the team, I can honestly say I am continually impressed with the speed at which Dave works, he is literally a powerhouse, with his eye continually on the end game. Not only that, he values his team and has built a great sense of community amongst everybody. He gives recognition and praise to all successes but still maintains high standards and expectations.

So, it seems appropriate to thank Dave and his incredible work ethic. He is a great example to all of us and I am sure I speak for most of the team when I say we are all very grateful of the opportunities he has given us.”
