Bobby Trundley from Wokingham was diagnosed with autism at 4 years old and from an early age, has found motorsport to have a profound impact on the way he copes with the condition.
His passion for the sport was ignited when he first sat in a go-kart at the age of 10, and in 2011 he was awarded the Charlie Parker Memorial Trophy at Buckmore Park, as the most promising driver.
In 2014 he was a finalist out of sixty participants in the Ginetta Junior Scholarship, having only minimal experience and went on to take five national karting titles.
He has been awarded a wealth of trophies, and has taken part in charity events such as the DamonHill Kart Challenge in aid of the Halow Project and the Back on Track Charity Kart Race.
Bobby has been awarded the Anna Kennedy OBE, Autism Hero Award for outstanding achievement in sport and was awarded the ANCA World Autism Festival Excellence in Sport Award 2017.
Bobby joined Team BRIT in 2019, racing in the BMW 118 Trophy Series where he won four out of his five races in his first ever year of car racing.
He has raced in the Britcar Championship where he took third place overall alongside Aaron Morgan in 2021, driving our Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4. In 2022 he drove our Mclaren 570S GT4 in the British GT Championship, making history with Aaron as the first ever all-disabled pairing to take part. They finished 2nd in their class and return to the championship in 2023.
“Team BRIT has completely changed my life. Before I joined the team, I was shy, I lacked confidence, I needed support for most things and had little independence.
“Now, I travel around the country and the world to race, I share my story to thousands, I have a full-time job alongside my racing and I’ve been given so many opportunities.
“I honestly believe my autism is my superpower on the race track. My focus and analytical mind give me an advantage over my competitors and I’m always pushing for the win.”
