Gigawave MotorSport will be flying the flag for Britain in this season’s FIA GT Championship, as the only UK-based team in the GT1 class. Led by Team Manager Steve Hagger, Gigawave MotorSport will prepare and race an Aston Martin DBR9 from its headquarters in Essex, entering the full 10-race international Championship, which starts at Silverstone on 20th April.
Current Australian GT Champion Allan Simonsen joins Austrian star Philipp Peter behind the wheel of the DBR9, an experienced line-up demonstrating the new team’s determination to succeed in this, Gigawave MotorSport’s debut season.
After a ‘shakedown’ race at Zolder, in the last round of 2007, a busy pre-season testing period is now planned for the new team, prior to the start of the 2008 Championship.
Team Manager Steve Hagger is expecting big things for 2008. “The team and drivers will be pushing very hard for podium finishes. This will be an exciting first season for Gigawave MotorSport in conjunction with Aston Martin Racing.”
Gigawave MotorSport is backed by Gigawave, a broadcast company with a long history in motorsport. Gigawave provides live on-board camera footage for major race series including MotoGP and the FIA GT and GT3 Championships. The Aston Martin DBR9 will be wired up for every race to give fans fantastic, broadcast-quality, on-board footage – the perfect way to view the race.
