Here at Ginetta towers, we get lots of praise for our superb racing drivers and the endless laps of entertainment they provide. Yet, you – the public – often don’t get to find out what’s going on under those race suits and helmets. Okay, so it’s usually fireproof underwear, but what about the drivers themselves, what makes them tick?
So, because we love nothing more than a good chatter over a mug of Yorkshire Tea and some custard creams, we’ve sat our drivers down to ask them a couple of questions which should give you an insight into their lives. Or just entertain you for a minute.
This week, we’ve been chatting to one of the biggest characters in the Michelin Ginetta GT4 SuperCup paddock. He never fails to bring a smile to our faces at a wet and windy race track. Our very own Kylie because he loves ‘spinning around’ quite literally, it’s Fraser Robertson.
Ginetta: What do you have to set to ‘record’ on your TV when you’re away racing?
FR: nothing at all!
G: Who would play you in a film about your life?
FR: Me! I’m not dead yet and I’m an incredible actor. Wait, will I get paid?
G: Who’s the most exciting person that follows you on Twitter?
FR: What’s Twitter?
G: Do you have any pre-race rituals?
FR: Yes. Usually I like to get in the car.
G: What’s been the hairiest moment behind the wheel of a race car or go-kart?
FR: Setting my 996 on fire at Shell Island Bend (Oulton Park) and trying to get back to the pits. I only made it to Lodge Corner before the marshals put me out.
