Power Pest to take control

Paul, cousin of Tony Gilham, is to join the team and make his long awaited racing debut after recently experiencing the adrenaline rush of on track driving. Paul has only a handful of track days under his belt but some very promising reviews from renowned instructors has encouraged him to follow his dream. 

Tony said “after speaking to one or two instructors I have raced with before that have sat alongside and worked with Paul, it became clear that he has the ability to take his driving to the next level. It will be the first time that a family member will have raced with the team so I am excited to see what we can accomplish together and will do all I can to make it an enjoyable and successful entry in to the racing world.”

Paul commented “Having become a massive follower of the BTCC and been involved in sponsoring Team Hard for 2 of last years rounds, The buzz from being involved at that level itself was great!!!  I have now become hooked on the thought of getting behind the wheel of a race car and having a go myself! I have done various track days already in my own track prepared car and some one on one tuition sessions too...”

“I’m not out to break any records, Just have some fun and get a feel for it... I am really excited that I am joining Team Hard for the final 2 rounds of the 2014 season in the VW Racing cup.. I can’t wait to get out there and experience the thrill of the racing environment and get involved with the rest of the team, I’m going to give it everything I have. Also to have the car covered in my own company's livery will be exciting... HARD Work paying off.

I feel very privileged to be able to have a go at this, I have the attitude that you only live once, this means a whole lot to me breaking in my race wings... Who knows what will happen after this?? GO HARD OR GO HOME... LOL”
