Tiff Needell drives for Secure Racing/Barwell at Silverstone

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

Secure Racing, the motorsport team for the IT security industry, supported by Barwell Motorsport, today unveiled Tiff Needell as one of its drivers for the final round of the AVON TYRES British GT Championship at Silverstone next Saturday – 8th October.

As one of the best known faces in British motorsport Tiff brings a wealth of driving experience to the team for this, the final and most exciting stage of the British GT Championship. He will join principal driver Peter Erceg in the Secure Racing Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 2011 as the team attempts to secure a second podium finish of the season.

“Tiff has raced just about everything with wheels,” says Peter. “Formula Ford, Formula One, Le Mans, GT1, Rallycross. You name it, he’s competed. That type of experience is going to be amazing for us at Silverstone. We are thrilled to have him on board for the day.”

The last round of the AVON TYRES British GT Championship represents a glittering end to a fantastic first year into British GT motorsport for Secure Racing. Finishing 5th at Brands Hatch – cheered on by more than 50 team supporters – and 3rd for a podium finish at Spa, the team couldn’t quite keep up the progress as gearbox troubles hampered performance at Donington last weekend. Secure Racing is keen to go out on a high, with a trophy in hand.

“We’ve reached the pinnacle of the season and everything seems to be working together for the last race,” said Mohan Koo from sponsor Dtex Systems. “The car is at its absolute best following some amazing work by the guys at Barwell Motorsport, all our sponsors are going to be with us on the day to cheer us on, and our driver line up couldn’t be better. It’s the ultimate position, in the ultimate race, using the ultimate team of drivers, on the ultimate UK track. We can’t wait.”
