Gary Simms paid a visit to the High Tech Headquarters of his main Sponsor, Leasedrive in Wokingham last week, along with the Optimum Motorsport team.
The Ginetta G40 Simms had achieved both wins and podium appearances during this year’s Total Quartz Ginetta GT5 Challenge was proudly displayed in the Atrium area, and attracted a huge amount of interest from staff and fans.
Simms said; “Today has been really great. It was so good to meet more of the Leasedrive Staff and get a wider knowledge of just how their company ticks. Now the racing season has drawn to a close it’s been an opportunity to meet new faces, and also catch up with the many new friends who have already been along to race weekends with us this year, and I am looking forward to doing it again soon!
“I have formed a great working relationship with Leasedrive, and am proud to be associated with them. 2012 has been a solid introductory season for them and I think we have delivered just a taste of the benefits that being involved with a successful professional driver and team can offer to a business in the high profile sport of GT motor racing.
He added; “2013 is set to be my best and most exciting season yet. British GT is definitely the plan, I’ve done quite a bit of successful GT4 and 24hr endurance racing over the past few seasons, so to finally have the opportunity to mount a full season campaign with some testing would be an exciting prospect indeed and one that I’m totally committed to.
“I’m hoping to have everything confirmed and to announce my drive by December, so it’s off to the gym in the meantime to make sure I’m in the best condition possible physically, including some simulator work over the Winter.
I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank every single one of my sponsors who have helped to make this year possible, Ginetta Cars, Optimum Motorsport, Eurotunnel, ITCS computer services for my superb website, and Trustmark Design and Print for my promotional material, and of course as is so often the case in Motorsport my parents for their always incredible support!”
