Green Goblins meet Marc Hynes, British Touring Car driver.

On Friday 10th October the Green Goblin Team were invited, through a contact of Mr West and Clifford Thames, to visit Quantel Bifold Racing at Brands Hatch to meet and speak to their BTCC driver, Marc Hynes.
The children were thrown into the deep end as they were seated on a table to watch the Secretary for Defence, Michael Fallon who is also the local MP, give an encouraging talk on how local businesses can help each other strive.
After lunch we were transported to the Garage/Pits area to meet with Marc Hynes.
Our first impression was how tall he was for a racing driver. After a slightly nervous start the children began to relax as Marc showed his calming nature, answering their questions one by one. Some facts the children found out included:
· His car has a 0 - 62mph in 4.5 secs
· His favourite circuit is Macau in China
· He started racing when he was 10 years old
Having shown Marc our portfolio he spent the next hour talking with the children about their own racing experiences with the Green Goblin Kart. One and a half hours later, Marc suggested that we visit the garage to see his car. According to his PA he could only imagine speaking with the children for about 10 minutes!
Transported in 2 road versions of Marc’s car, we headed off to the garage where he spoke with individual children about the various parts of the car and then invited each one to have a go sitting in the drivers seat, explaining what the many controls were.
This was a truly amazing experience for the children and as a reward each one of the Goblin team received a special goody bag. Our thanks got to Quantel Bifold Racing, Mr West and of course to Marc himself.
