So it's finally confirmed that I will be racing in @fiaformulae in New York City in 2 weeks time for @ds_virginracing I'm sorry I got the call up in front of you Sir @richardbranson 😜
Perfect Saturday for a samba garden party with @blaisedyer and friends, nice to have a relaxed weekend off 😀✌🏽
A week ago tonight I took pole position for the Le Mans 24 hours in LMP2. I have been struggling to think of a caption that justifies this picture for a while now, so I will just write down what I wrote on my de brief sheet after that run. 'The most beautifully balanced racing car I have driven in years.' Bravo @gdriveracing it was a flying machine 😀
Enjoying my artistic side on Monday whilst also getting a horrendous sunburn.. and probably mild heat stroke. But at least the pictures came out great 👍🏽 #bicycle #fromwhereiride
Today was spent getting over my Le Mans blues... and I have to say it worked rather well 😀 safe to say I am so gutted about how the race went but there was a lot to be positive about the whole weekend, just not the result. Still, a new challenge awaits in the next month that I'm very excited about 🤓
Today is the day.. the Le Mans 24 hours, come 3PM this afternoon the question is, who's fastest now?
POLE POSITION 😀😀😀😀 last night I managed to take pole position for the Le Mans 24 hours, i have to say a massive thanks to the whole @gdriveracing crew for an amazing car, I feel honoured to be able to be able to take pole on my first Le Mans weekend. Now the small matter of a 24 hour sprint to the win! 👊🏽
Yesterday we had first practise and qualifying, pace is very strong and looking forward to seeing what we can do tonight. It's bloody hot here 😰
Finally tomorrow we drive 😆 the wait is finally over and we can unleash the #26 @gdriveracing car. @romanrusinoff @pierre_thiriet
@gdriveracing crew is ready for the Le Mans 24 hours! Still a bit of waiting until first qualifying on Wednesday but I'm absorbing all of the cool atmosphere of this historic event 😀
Coffee contemplation 😀☕️ final day at home is over and heading on down to Le Mans tomorrow. Check out @blaisedyer's latest blog post as there are some quite arty pictures of around Oxford 🙃📸
Yesterday's Le Mans test day was a success, 93 laps on the board for the #26 @gdriveracing car with some good pace thrown in. A very stereotypical Le Mans shot to post but it was my time so had to be done 👍🏽 @fiawec_official @24heuresdumans
We have said goodnight to her, and at 9.02 tomorrow morning she will be at 200 MPH, can't wait to drive this iconic track 😀
This weekend will be my first time driving around the famous Le Mans circuit on Sunday for the official test day. Looking forward to getting to work with the @gdriveracing crew. 😀
When I'm not away racing I'm basically Mario Testino 📸 personal photographer for @blaisedyer. If you use one of my blaise images please give me credit, and yes the new towel series is coming soon.
So the fairy tale didn't come true... but it wasn't far off 🙁 we had to retire the car with damage from another car hitting us with only 5 hours left. We spent 19 hours in a solid P3 and fighting every lap to get close to the lead. Safe to say it was an amazing experience and I am extremely proud to have represented @bmwmotorsport and team Schnitzer. Also to share the car with such a great group of drivers @augusto_farfus @afelixdacosta @timoscheider
