PLENTY OF PLAUDITS FOR TIM!
Tim Mullen has been pulling in the praise over the last few weeks, most notably from Autosport magazine. He was voted No.1 British GT driver of the 2006 season:
“He may have been in the best car, but the Northern Irishman again showed his class. Mullen was able to control races comfortably, but could also turn up the wick when required and will surely be seen in more international GT events next season after impressing in his FIA GT campaign in 2006.
He then appeared in the top ten of FIA GT drivers (one of only two GT2 drivers, the other being Ferrari factory driver Jaime Melo) winning particular praise for his “Herculean” drive in Dubai.
He was nominated for a prestigious Autosport Award and then voted third best national driver from all categories. The top two were ‘McLaren Autosport Young Driver of the Year’ winner, Oliver Turvey, and fellow nominee Sam Bird.
The Ferrari 430 was awarded ‘Car of the Year’ after Tim and Chris Niarchos took it to 10 victories in the British GT Championship.
The frantic 2006 season may be over but the team is busier than ever making plans for an equally-frantic 2007. Stewart Roden and his team are in the process of selecting the driver line-up and securing the funding for the team’s assault on the FIA GT Championship, the Le Mans Series and the Le Mans 24 Hours. Full details will be announced in the new year.
