Ollie Reuben: TVR Co-Driver
What car did you pass your test in and did you pass first time?
I passed my test in a Vauxhall Corsa and unfortunately I passed 2nd time, but they do say all good drivers pass 2nd time.
You have competed in historic endurance events before, what is your favourite race and what is your best result so far?
I have to say my favourite event I've competed in so far has to be the Spa 6 Hour, but my best result in an endurance race was in the 25 hour Funcup at Spa where we finished first British car home, 2nd Diesel car and P5 overall, this isn't my best overall result. I have won multiple races including multiple Britcar races in a BMW 1 series to which me and the owner claimed the championship.
Which car is quickest, Ford GT40, or TVR Griffith?
Without doubt the GT40 is ultimately the quicker of the two, it is a purpose built racing car with all the right components that makes it into the car it is, that's not to say the TVR isn't close behind, at the end of the day, the Griffith is a road car that has been made into car that races on the track, not a racing car.
Do you have any hobbies away from the race track, And does training and diet play an important part in your life?
My main hobby away from motorsport is rock climbing/bouldering, it is a very physical sport that requires both strength and the the ability to 'solve a problem', what a lot of people don't know about the sport is how much fun it is, you go to a climbing gym and you train hard without it being the boring strenuous task that is going to a regular everyday gym. It's also very much a social event and when you're at the gym, if you are struggling with a 'problem' there are always people there willing to try and help.
