Customer review

Amanda Bilinska
5/5

“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. “

what the manager says

“I’ve known the Taylor’s for a few years through Karting, and talks about Zak racing in Ginetta Juniors actually started in mid-2018.

After a somewhat enforced plunge into resurrecting a race team & jumping into the TOCA paddock, the Taylor’s, along with the Bilinski’s, stuck with me, for which I’m extremely grateful.

The plan last year was always for Zak to concentrate on his exams & to fit some Ginetta testing in around his British Kart Championship commitments before racing at Thruxton, Silverstone & the Brands Hatch finale and keeping his Rookie status for this season.

A lot of people headed back to work today, and for us it was no exception, the only difference being our place of work was a race circuit. A proper winter testing programme has been choreographed, and Zak has spent some time at the workshop, all of which is in preparation for the season ahead.

We both know that it’s a marathon not a sprint in terms of the Championship, but we intend on arriving at Donington for round 1 in the best possible position, and I see no reason why we can’t make some waves along the way”
