Oliver based in Monaco and Benjamin currently studying at Millfield School in the United Kingdom, started in karting and are coached by former Aston Martin factory driver and 2013 World Endurance Championship GTE AM-winner Stuart Hall. Benjamin (17) and Oliver (15) are now ready to take the next steps towards professional racing and have turned to Bullet to make sure they reach their potential.
Benjamin, who competed in the 2019 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup with Spa 24 Hours winners GPX Racing aged just 16-years old, was awarded the SRO Merit Award at 16 years old by the series organisers and will continue his GT3 career in the world-class GT3 series that has been renamed the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup for 2020. He will be looking to add to the podium trophies he won in Barcelona 24 Hours and Abu Dhabi 12 Hours as he carves out what promises to be a successful sportscar career.
“Blancpain GT Series was a bit of an ‘in at the deep end’ experience last year but I learned so much with GPX Racing and from Stuart (Hall) and this means I’ll definitely go into this season as a much better driver”, Benjamin said. “I’m looking forward to working with Bullet to progress my career and making sure my brother and I become the best racing drivers we can be.”
Meanwhile, Oliver – who was French Vice-Champion in X30 Junior in 2018 – will follow in his older brother’s footsteps by contesting Spanish F4, the series won by fellow Bullet Athlete Franco Colapinto in 2019.
“We’re delighted to welcome Benjie and Ollie to Bullet Sports Management,” commented Bullet Director Nic Minassian. “Both are exciting young talents and we are confident we can push their careers forward. We’ll be announcing their 2020 teams in the coming weeks and look forward to supporting them alongside our other Bullet Athletes; Ferdinand Habsburg, Tom Onslow-Cole, Rui Andrade and Franco Colapinto.”
