As well as making our cars available to hire for track days, we also provide an "arrive-and-drive" service for racing events. One driver who took up this option in Round 4 of the Pulsar Racing Series on 2 July was experienced karter Denis Barbaro, who was searching for some extra seat time ahead of the Pulsar enduro in December.
Against a super-competitive 32-car Pulsar field, Barbaro qualified eighth in his first-ever car racing meeting, and finished an outstanding sixth outright in Race 3. He received the awards for best-performing rookie, and the Masters Trophy for best driver over 35.
"I had an awesome weekend! From when I jumped in for some testing on Friday, through to qualifying and all three races, the car performed faultlessly. It was certainly better than any other hire car I had driven.
"I was pleasantly surprised with the car's power and it also handled well. Phil Alexander and his crew gave us everything we asked for and my driving improved in each race as I learned more about the car."
