One of the highlights of Mark’s career as the MBR team boss was becoming the Formula 3 Cup Team Champions in 2013
In Nov 2013 Mark handed over the race preparation to Mike Gale who has worked with him for many years at MBR. Mark has continued in Motorsport, but has been concentrating his efforts on the Hewland transmission business, the gearbox rebuild service and sales, and on consultancy work. Mark has also continued the Spectrum Formula Ford Agency, and race car engineering and engine/ gearbox installation work from the MBR workshops.
Thanks again to Mark for a great presentation outlining a very impressive career in motorsport!
