However, it was also an underlying feeling that once on track their priorities change from maintaining family relations to maintaining the bragging rights and winning races. “We have always been very competitive” added Scott.“From when we were kids we always wanted to do better than each other. But I have sat and watched Gary race over the years and thought to myself I can do better than that or I would be able to beat him. Once you get out there it all changes.” “When they bring out the five-second boards and the red lights come on you pull your straps tight and that’s it.” “For me, it’s all about the competitiveness of racing,” added Gary.“The rush comes and the adrenaline kicks in. But also it brings everyone together. There are so many people at the meetings and you have a good group of friends who all share a love of motorsport.” The brothers have been truly bitten by the racing bug with both sinking serious money and even more serious time into their racing. We worked out the other day that it costs us about £7000 to initially buy the road car and convert it to what we have now but that is without any labour costs,” explain Scott. “We do that ourselves so if we were to add that on top of all the hours we put in, it would be closer to a £20,000 bill for each car.” Sibling rivalry can become a serious issue but as long as it is accompanied by a close bond between the brothers, squabbles should be settled quite safely on the race circuit.

Dad Paul has just gained his racing license! “The rush comes and the adrenaline kicks in. But also it brings everyone together.
