Racing Vlogger Broadbent takes The VW Wheel with GT Radial

Vlogger and esports gamer, Jimmy Broadbent and Director at Tegiwa Imports, Luke Sedzikowski joined GT Radial for the penultimate rounds of the 2021 Fun Cup Endurance Championship at Oulton Park.

In the one-hour sprint the team performed extremely well with car number 97 finishing 10th having started 21st on the grid.

However the four-hour endurance race finished in disappointment, having started from 15th position the car was shunted off the track early on, span at the fast island which resulted in splitter damage and suffered gearbox failure which finished their race within one hour and 34 minutes.
