Gavin started his career racing 2-stroke Formula TKM as part of MBKC, securing three podiums in his first three races and won the Novice Gold Cup.
In 2014 he switched to the Classic Stock Hatch Championship driving a Ford XR2 as part of Skywheels Racing, scoring his best finish of the year at Cadwell Park. After driving two different XR2's in the early part of the following year he switched to the Peugeot 205 GTi towards the end of the 2015 season before planning a switch back to rear wheel drive machinery.
In 2016 Gavin debuted in the Toyo Tires BRSCC Porsche Championship, scoring 2 podium finishes. He also began work as an instructor for Supercar Drive Days.
Gavin made a major step in his driving this year and scored 4 podiums in the first 5 races to lead the championship early on. The podium finishes kept rolling in, and he finally broke through to win in round 7 at Rockingham. And with some style, having taken the pole position and track record along the way.
This year Gavin showed an improvement in his technical knowledge, allowing him to make better judgement calls on any problems or maintenance required to keep the car performing at its best. As impressive as the gains in speed was his consistency. Gavin finished all but one race this year, driving smarter as well as faster, and began showing the aggression he’ll need to build on his championship runner-up position and go one better next season!
