Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Assault light team for for two young aspiring drivers. So. Myself on Gareth bale happened to be to be the chosen ones. I had one the Ford Fiesta championship the year before unto Garth was was a front runner in in not. So so I'm not quite sure how they hire the atomic kitten connection come to two MG. But for me, it was it was a double edged sword. It was good and not a such a focus on these two new young guys coming into the BTC. And you know, the the the girls actually come to to the races. They come to very frustrated Sutts may very first race as adults and park. Did you hold it in the back of the van, then no? I was propped on the ball. Suddenly my Shane. But yeah, it was again it was a it was an eye opener. And but really put the spotlight on on all sun part of me did fail bit on easy without. But the good thing is, you know, as soon as you're in the car since you put the helmet on all those things go go to one side. And and you just want to get to the front you've been in the BTC with a couple of years sabbatical spunk abrasions ever since then have you ever been tempted any point to consider something else cheese or anything? I'm my passion has always been during cars on than I have dabbled in the Audrius here. And there I site of I'd say touring cars, but you know, I I love the the competitive environment. I love the door to door. You know, I love everything a bite the ATC high competitive it is, and and you know, that's where I've been able to be successful. And that's where I've been able to to make a career. And and yes, I think you'll almost can get pigeonholed as as just a touring car driver. You know, the there's there's calling Turkington he's not only lose crazy touring car drivers. But you know, that's whatever always loved doing. And you know, I've been fortunate to to be in the tumbling knife for for for it's fourteen or fifteen seasons on you know, this been some good times when this been some really tough times as well. Especially after winning championships were. Where suddenly it becomes very difficult to to get back on the grid the following season. So, you know, turn cars says, obviously requires quite a big financial commitment unday. You know, that's one of the biggest challenges. We've you know we face year on year. That was a disappointment lock Najrah man, saloon diamond hill not returning to the team off to winning the Formula one world championship. It was it was a big disappointment. When you couldn't make it back to the BTC. This is twenty twenty I two thousand nine. Yes. Disposable to the end of the season, and you off the grid. Yeah. Correct. Them in a while. I was very fortunate in the the RSA had had backed our team from two thousand six unday. I think this science I two thousand five and then this this ain't a three year program so five six seven, and you know, that's. As far as we ever thought, we could get with the and that was a good term for for a title sponsor. But the the cap renewing, you know, for do one more year, we'll do one more year, and it culminated in two thousand nine with with with the winning the championship. And when I looked back ni-, it's as a driver, you know, I was probably a little bit naive because you just expect the team to to to get the sponsor you knew the team get sponsor, and I'll do the drive deliver the goods, and especially when when you're in a season when you're leading the championship the blinkers are on all you can think about is performance.
