Happy Birthday Oliver Bryant
Oliver Bryant was DSC’s UK Rookie of the Year in 2005 and today, November 15, he hits the heady heights of 21 years of age.

We first saw a young Oliver in action aboard a Lamborghini Diablo at the 2004 Bahrain GT Festival, but by then he was already a highly accomplished racer of historic GT cars, principally from his father’s rather splendid collection.

Since then we have seen him aboard the Team Aero Morgan Aero 8 - car owner Keith Ahlers cannot speak highly enough of his 2005 and 2006 co-pilot - as well as a 2006 FIA GT3 season aboard a Tech 9 Porsche 997, not forgetting an outing in the Le Mans Series at the Nurburgring in 2005 in the Tech 9 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

It’s been an impressive couple of seasons for the young man from Oxford and there is surely much more to come.
