Bobby takes the next step towards racing stardom

Team BRIT’s most successful rookie to date, has had his first taste of GT4 racing.

20-year-old Bobby Trundley from Wokingham lives with autism, and joined the team in January 2019 after a successful junior karting career.

Having won 3 out of his 4 races in the BMW 116 Trophy, team founder Dave Player arranged for Bobby to test in the team’s Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 at a recent track day held at Donington Park.

Bobby was able to spend time in the car, which is currently raced by drivers Warren McKinlay and Martyn Compton in the Britcar Championship, ahead of a full test session planned for Thursday 12th September at the Donington circuit.

Now, the search is on for new partners to get behind Bobby to support his move into GT4 racing, cementing his position as the most successful driver with autism in motorsport.

Bobby said, “Team BRIT has made a dream come true for me yet again.

“The Aston Martin is such a different beast to the BMW in which I’m racing this year, so is a huge step up.

“The biggest thing I had to adjust to was the braking, because although you need to brake at the same points as in the BMW, it all has to happen at a much faster speed.

“I still feel speechless about having the opportunity to do this, I never thought I would drive a GT race car.

“I'm honoured to drive a British race car with a British race team that is making such a difference.  I hope that with some additional sponsors onboard, I can keep progressing, representing Team BRIT at this higher level.”
