Customer review

Amanda Bilinski

“After working with Alastair Rushforth Motorsport for a season we can not recommend the team highly enough. We reeled from more than our share of good and bad luck but Ali was consistently there… brilliance with the car, a supportive ear for the driver as Ali has driven himself and a sharp decision maker as manager. 

I honestly couldn’t have imagined the season without Ali, by joining this team you’re be in the best of hands. “
