G’day (Good-bye) Mate
“Just thought I would drop you a line and say good-bye, as
I have left the cold of the English winter behind me and I’m
now working down under,” says (former) GruppeM race engineer
“After seven years in Europe working in sportscars,
I’ve decided to undertake a new challenge and take up the
role of race engineer at Garry Rogers Motorsport running the number
33 Commodore of Lee Holdsworth.”
it’s back home for the personable Aussie – who the Ed.
first came across in British GTs, helping to look after the late
Steve O’Rourke’s McLaren (below – Adam sporting
the pony tail).
he’s typically been engineering whatever Tim Sugden has been
driving (GruppeM and J3 in recent seasons), and during 2005 he looked
after the #88 GruppeM Porsche. He’s pictured on the right
with Jonathan Cocker and (#66 engineer) Dr. Steve Bunkhall.
Adam was always
inclined to look at alternative race strategies, and his plan at
the FIA race at Istanbul last year worked a treat: the story of
that ploy is here.
He always had
an interesting tale to tell – most of them not for these pages
– and we wish him all the best back home.
