A familiar site on-track, and now too at the AMIP complex at SMSP, is legendary race team operator, Adam Gotch, and his crew from AGI Sport. On top of competing at the highest level in several race categories, AGI Sport also mentors and develops the next generation of Australia’s racing talent, including F4 wunderkind, Jack Beeton.
In recent competitions, AGI Sport and Jack have dominated the field, picking up wins in the first and third races of the South East Asian F4 Championship in Sepang, as well as challenging academy drivers from the likes of Red Bull and Prema Racing at the Macau F4 Grand Prix.
To give an indication of the depth of talent Jack and AGI Sport are taking the fight to, to quote Adam himself, “Prema Racing from Italy is considered the most successful junior single seater team in the world and regularly win championships in F2, F3, and F4. They are heavily tied to Ferrari F1 but also run most of the F1 Academy drivers for Red Bull, Mercedes, McLaren and of course Ferrari.”
In the Feature Race at Macau, Jack was only cruelled a spot on the podium by a safety car in the final laps; still coming in fourth and much to the delight of his team. This, just mere hours before AGI Sport race engineers worked through the night to thanks to a broken chassis in practise.
Adam summed things up perfectly:
“Considering where we were on Saturday morning with a broken chassis, we were excited to be P4 in the main race. With only 3 Prema cars in front of us, we were ahead of two French cars, and well ahead of all the Asian teams,” Adam explained.
“What I was personally most excited about was that we took the fight to the biggest team in Europe, Prema Racing. A great result!”
Congratulations to Adam, Jack and the AGI Sport team, we can’t wait to see where this amazing partnership will lead to next!
