No, we’re not talking about being recognised by screaming female fans. But we are delighted that one of the drivers we look after the PR for was recognised by the Australian Institute of Sport!
GP3 Series racer Mitchell Gilbert was given the prestigious opportunity to be part of a unique training camp for some of Australia’s most promising young drivers.
He was one of 17 drivers invited to the CAMS Academy camp last week in Melbourne put on by the Australian Institute of Sport.
While he was given access to some of the best equipment and advice he could have hoped for, he now waits to discover whether he has made the shortlist of drivers to get a chance to go further in the programme.
He said: “To be recognized in this way and invited to join up with the best young drivers in the country is a real proud moment. It was a real honour to represent the country.
“We were also introduced to sportsmen and women at the top of their games who told us about the path they had taken. It was really motivational and inspiring.”
We got the story out in the motorsport press and look forward to watching Mitch progress in his career.
