Hello and welcome to my Official Website.

2012 looks set to be busy a year for me with a number of fresh opportunities both on and away from the track.

I was delighted to be made an official McLaren Automotive test driver which sees me travelling to the four corners of the globe, working on the evaluation and development of the British manufacturer’s current and future range of production supercars.

While that will undoubtedly keep me busy for the most part, I’m still very much looking forward to racing the MP4-12C GT3 at selected events this year with new team Lapidus Racing, who will be entering selected Blancpain Endurance Series races including the prestigious 24 Hours of Spa.

As well as that I’m hoping to contest other selected long-distance GT events such as the Barcelona 24 Hours, all of which you can keep up to date with right here.

This website is also the place to find out information on my partners and sponsors, while you can get in touch either via the contact form or by tweeting @philquaife.
