DAVID GANDY JOINS VECTOR MARTINI RACING’S iRACE PRO TEAM
Vector Martini Racing (VMR) are delighted to announce that David Gandy, the world’s only male supermodel, has joined their iRace Pro Team. Under the instruction of Vector professionals, David has already started his training as powerboat racing pilot and alongside racing, will undertake a World Endurance Record as part of the Vector four-man crew.
Award-winning David has represented some of the world’s most iconic fashion brands and has graced many billboards around the globe. As a writer, he contributes regular columns to a number of prestigious print and online publications. He is also an accomplished businessman as well as a dedicated fundraiser for several charities. A self-confessed “adrenalin junkie”, David collaborated with Jaguar in 2015 to drive the prestigious Mille Miglia with Jodie Kidd, a 1,000 mile endurance race through Italy.
VMR’s iRace Pro Team is the highly-prestigious professional racing application of its unique Vector iRace programme which allows corporate passengers to safely experience speeds of up to 100 mph in a Vector V40R powerboat. Vector is recruiting a team of very high-profile media and sports professionals for its iRace Pro programme, with David Gandy as its first official signing. Each iRace Pro Team participant will be trained by the Vector Team and participate as a fully qualified crew-member in one of a series of six World Endurance Records scheduled over the next 18 months being filmed for global television broadcast.
“I’m thrilled to join the VMR’s Pro iRace series,” said David Gandy. “I have a real passion for speed and nothing compares to the exhilaration and experience of driving a V40R powerboat with 2200hp at your fingertips – there is no other motor sport or experience quite like it.”
Malcolm Crease, CEO, VMR added: “It’s fantastic to have David on board as part of our World Record breaking and World Championship winning team. His approach is highly motivated and professional. His experience and involvement will bring a whole new lifestyle dynamic to our unique programme. We are both honoured and proud to be working with him.”
