Managing Director of Sycamore Lighting Ltd, Gary Baxter has today swapped interior lights for headlights after signing up to become the Ginetta Racing Drivers Club for 2016.
The 56 year old Yorkshire businessman from West Yorkshire has absolutely no motorsport experience, but is an avid collector of classic cars, motorbikes and scooters – so no doubt his brand new, Ginetta G40 Club Car will put the cat amongst the pigeons!
Having owned his own business for the past 23 years, Gary is a self-motivated innovator constantly looking for new ideas and challenges and being amongst the first to sign up to the 2016 grid, he’s looking forward to enjoying some competitive racing, and enjoying himself at the same time!
Gary Baxter, driver;“I’m finally fulfilling my life-long ambition to become a racing driver! What Ginetta offer with their Ginetta Racing Drivers Club package is perfect, the fact that normal people can live out their childhood dreams in a family atmosphere and at an affordable price is simply too good an opportunity to miss! I can’t wait to get out on track!”
Hayley Hickmore, Ginetta Championships Coordinator;“We are delighted to have Gary with us for 2016. He really ‘gets’ that Ginetta is all about living your dreams, and having fun at the same time. He’s really passionate about all-things mechanical and I am sure he’s going to have a fantastic time this season. ”
