Daniel Brown – Introduction

Daniel Brown – Introduction

Hi everyone.

The guys at Racing.GT asked me to write a column for them this year, and I am happy to oblige.

Here is a little of my background:

I first started racing at the age of 12 in karting.

Just after my 14th birthday I moved into the very competitive TCars Championship. In 2006, I competed in the TCars and SaxMax Championships, with several podium finishes for the year.?In 2007, I continued in the TCars Championship and achieved the ultimate goal of becoming Champion.

My challenge for 2008 was the Formula Palmer Audi Championship?where I showed that I had the pace and finished the year as Rookie champion.

For 2009, I moved into Sportscars and competed in the Avon Tyres British GT Championship for Rollcentre Racing in the Mosler with several podium finishes.

I continued in the British GT Championship in 2010, driving a Ferrari 430 Scuderia, with rapid veteran Chris Hyman and we scored a number of podiums.

In 2011, I moved into the FIA GT3 European Championship, driving for leading Italian squad AF Corse in a Ferrari 458 GT3.

During 2011, I was recognised for my driving talents and successes at a high level and became one of the youngest, full members of the BRDC.

2012 saw me continue through the ranks of Sportscars racing by taking part in the Blancpain Endurance Series in the Pro-Am category, and having the opportunity to race at the 24 Hours of Spa.

Alongside driving the modern machinery, I have also driven in a wide range of different Historic race series over the past few years and become recognised as both a fast and safe driver.

For 2013, I have so far confirmed to be driving in the British GT championship for 888Optimum in a BMW Z4 GT3 car. After a couple of years racing in Europe, I’m looking to bring that experience in to this seasons campaign and will be aiming for success with my team mate Steve Tandy.
