Bill “Wom” Garner has competed internationally in 250 national karts.

But after much research, conversations with current participants and visiting some of the 750 motor club race meetings, he decided on a Formula Vee single-seater vehicle.

2017 was very much a development year with many ups and downs, a steep learning curve with big development steps being taken.

2018 has seen a development partnership with AWS Motorsport culminating in a double win success at Mondello Park in Ireland.
