Welcome, to my final blog post of 2018. It has been a pretty good year with me being able to attend more race weekends then ever before, visit events as accredited media that I had previously only ever dreamed of, oh and there was the day where I travelled to and from Switzerland all within 12 hours. In this blog post, I will reminisce and reflect on my key motorsport highlights from the year and give an honest review of my experiences and any corny life lessons I might have learnt along the way. If you are patient, you can also read about a new project I will be tackling in 2019. It is something that has been in the works since the summer and I am so happy to be sharing it with you all now as we approach the new year and welcome new beginnings. Anyway, enough waffling – I have made myself a huge mug of tea and am ready to confess all from my year in motorsport.
You asked, I answered. Hope you enjoy this quick question and answer session. If you have any more questions, ask away through my Twitter account (@katyfairman) and I will try and get back to them!
Yesterday marked a year since the concept of the Electric GT World Series was announced. The championship is to be the first zero emissions super car GT international series, with plans to use a version of the Tesla Model S and its first season predicted to start as soon as this year. One year on from the all-electric championship being confirmed, I caught up with Electric GT’S CEO Mark Gemmell to find out how preparation for the series is going, why he wanted to create an Electric GT Championship and what the future may hold for electric cars in both motorsport and the motoring industry.
