Gregor Fisken To Sponsor GT & Sports Endurance Masters
We reviewed the 2005 World Sportscar Masters Series here, in early January.

Gregor Fisken – that all-round good bloke, prototype driver (starting his 2006 season at Sebring this week) and London-based dealer in fine historic automobiles, has joined forces with The Masters Series (actually a collection of four historic motor racing categories) as a primary sponsor for the 2006 season.

The four series are “Grand Prix Masters”, “World Sportscar Masters”, “Sports Racing Masters” and “GT & Sports Endurance Masters”.

A glance at the series website will make it all clear. The test day for all four series takes place at Donington Park on April 25.

Gregor Fisken will focus his/its sponsorship activity on the GT & Sports Endurance Masters races, in conjunction with long-term co-sponsors, JCB.

“The great thing about this new structure,” said James Mitchell of Gregor Fisken (the company), “is that in many instances, competitors can bring along a selection of cars and enter two, three or four categories over the weekend, according to how energetic they are feeling!”

Gregor Fisken, founder and Managing Director of the company that bears his name, added: “We are very proud to continue our relationship with this group of historic motor racers – many of whom have become firm friends over the years. We’ll be doing all we can to enhance the value and experience of their race weekends and hopefully continue to fuel what, for all of us, is a shared-passion.”

Gregor Fisken himself is looking ahead to his second appearance in the Sebring 12 Hours – in the Highcroft Racing Lola B01/60. Fisken ‘cut his teeth in historic racing, while team owner and driving partner this week Duncan Dayton manages to fit in both modern and historic racing, often on consecutive weekends. Rick Knoop joins them at Sebring.

“I know from my previous experience at Sebring that the combination of the intense Florida sun, the bumpy, twisty nature of the circuit, and the sheer length of the race, that it’s imperative to prepare yourself physically and mentally,” says the Scot. “So I’ve been working hard in the gym with my trainer and trying to do a bit of heat training in the sauna also. I’ll tell you in a couple of weeks if it’s made a blind bit of difference!”

Here he is in action at Sebring in January.
