A Cirencester based racing car mechanic has been nominated for a national award.
Jack Carolan has received the nomination by Corinium Motorsport owner Neil Cox for the UK Sports Prototype Cup ‘Partscomm Mechanic of the Year’ award.
Praising Jack’s hard work and dedication, Neil Cox, owner of Corinium Motorsport, said: “He is a very good mechanic, he is trustworthy on all safety aspects of the car and is very knowledgeable about collecting data from the car.”
Jack helped build and maintain Bruce Crawley’s UK Sports Prototype Cup race winning Radical SR3 car.
Crawley took victory in the second race of the Silverstone round after mastering the challenging conditions.
Partscomm managing director, Robert Spittle describes the award: “Mechanics and technicians provide the talent that keeps Britain on the road and I don’t think they get the recognition they deserve. Motorsport mechanics have to work under huge pressure and are at the very top of their game. This award has been created to recognise someone who has gone above and beyond in such a unique and skilled field.”
The UK Sports Prototype Cup will announce the winner at Autosport International 2020 at the NEC, Birmingham on January 12.
