Arron GroombridgeMotorsport Assistant/Officials Co-ordinator
A penniless history degree student means road car experience has been limited to two MK1 Ford Focuses. Confident he holds the record for the most amount of punctures and wheel bearing failures suffered for that particular model!
Arron has a soft spot for most forms of motorsport, in particular endurance sports car racing. Road car wise, most 1970s/1980s luxury saloon & GT cars do the trick, or a current Volvo S90.
