Driver info : rob davies
Rob the driver is a self-confessed adrenaline freak. Rob purchased a Gemini in November 2014 and decided he wanted to go ThunderCat Racing in 2015!
He is highly motivated and competitive, he has competed competitively to a high standard in motocross and rallying to name but a few Motorsports, you name it Rob has raced it and collected several trophies along the way. He is also a Coxswain for Burry Port Lifeboats, D Class Rig and Atlantic Rig so he is totally at home on the water. Rob's other hobbies include jet skis and motorcycles to name but a few.
After a visit to HQ - Rob was offered Ahmed Tea's Aquarius hull - Race Boat No. 4. He decided to start the 2015 season racing this hull which proved to be very successful. During the season Rob was consistently seen on the podium and definitely proved to be a rookie driver to watch out for! At the final of the season Rob was placed an amazing 3rd in the Driver Championship, 2nd in the King of the Surf Championship and also picked up the ThunderCat Rookie Driver of the year award.
The 2016 season looks exciting for the team, they have accepted an sponsorship offer to race the Aquarius Microlink-Ahmed Tea boat, under race boat no. 4. We hope their lucky welsh dragon continues to bring them fast, safe racing in 2016.
