Basingstoke racing driver Aaron Morgan has secured a stunning victory with Team BRIT last Sunday.

Aaron drives for Team BRIT – the world’s only competitive all-disabled racing team. 

He, alongside teammate Bobby Trundley, took a double podium in the British GT Championship.

The race, held at Spa Francorchamps in Belgium was the seventh in this year’s championship, in which the team has made history as the first ever-all disabled team entry.

Aaron, who is paraplegic, and Bobby, who is a autistic, race the team’s Mclaren 570S GT4 in the Pro-Am category and qualified P2 in class and 10th overall in GT4 on Saturday. On Sunday, after some initial problems with a tyre failure in warm-up, the team and crew put in a flawless performance to secure their biggest ever victory.

The crew, under the leadership of Engineering Director Al Locke have been praised by commentators and teams alike for their incredible efforts in what has been a major step up. They were completing top-class pitstops in just 0.9 seconds over the minimum time requirement, whilst also running the team’s pioneering hand control technology which enables Aaron to race in the same car as Bobby.

Aaron, 31, broke his back in a motocross accident when he was 15 and was the youngest ever disabled person to achieve a national ‘B’ race licence when he got back into motorsport following his accident. 

Aaron took the first stint of the day, delivering some of his best ever driving before handing over to 22-year-old Bobby.  Bobby was diagnosed with severe autism as a child and went on to become a 5 x national karting champion before joining Team BRIT in 2019.

Sunday saw their first class win in the championship and first ever GT4 podium finish.  Last year, Aaron and Bobby competed in the Britcar Endurance Championship and 2022 has seen them step up to British GT, racing at their highest ever level.

The team’s long-term goal is to become the first ever all-disabled team to race in the Le Mans 24 hour, and it supports people with physical and psychological challenges in accessing motorsport. The team’s other six drivers are competing in the Britcar Trophy Championship and British Endurance Championship.

Aaron said: “It’s going to take a while for all of this to sink in! From our first race of the season, we have known that moving up to British GT is a major step up for us and a massive learning curve.  We’ve grasped the challenge and have grown and improved with every race which led to yesterday’s incredible result.

“I had the drive of my life, before Bobby took over and gave everything to push us up the grid. We were also supported by our fantastic crew who, as ever, worked like trojans to make sure our car performed at the highest level.

“A huge thank you to all the sponsors and fans who continue to show us so much support.”

Aaron and Bobby race again at Brands Hatch on the 11th September.
