Pepe MassotPepe Massot
Ginetta G55 Supercup Race Winner


Pepe continued his excellent run of results on UK soil with his graduation into the Ginetta G55 Supercup in 2013 claiming two outright wins and a number of podiums on his way to 5th place in the overall standings. Pepe switched teams midway through the season but continued his work with Matt to ensure a strong end the year at the Brands Hatch finale. For 2014 Pepe will race with the JHR team in a bid to win the title in what promises to be the most tightly fort championship on the BTCC package..

'Matt has played a huge role throughout my career. 2012 was a massive challenge for me, going to a place I don't know and to tracks I hadn't even heard about, having to compete with people native from the place with much more experience - I was 11 times on the podium with two race wins becoming rookie champion.

So was 2013, going into a competition where I was by far the youngest driver of the grid, where I did two more wins and nine other podiums. All this goes to Matt, he deserves every piece of silverware I have, he is the owner of my results. To have worked with him and then work with different coaches make you realize how good he is in every moment, that in every moment he does in a test day or in a race weekend there is a meaning, whether it is to disturb you from the pressure or to make you focus.'

Not only helping my transition from saloon cars to the completely different single seater, but also teaching me the techniques and race craft to go and win a championship in my first year of racing Formula Renault – Making me the youngest ever winter series champion in formula renault history. I have worked with Matt for all three years of my car racing career and won three titles in those years. Coincidence? I think not. I’d recommend Matt to absolutely anyone.’ ’






Pepe MassotPepe Massot
2012 Ginetta Junior Rookie Champion


Pepe only started racing this year and his first season yielded a superb run of 11 Rookie victories and 2 outright wins in the highly competitive Ginetta Junior Championship. Matt started working with Pepe from only April and helped develop this highly talented Spaniard. Had Pepe not missed the first two rounds of the series then he would have been in contention for the main championship which is an incredible achievement in only his first full season of racing.

'It is impossible to describe Matt in a few words, the feeling we've got is just unbelievable. He knows in every moment what you need as a driver, if when you are starting on pole you need to focus or you need him to take a photo with the grid girl to dispel the nerves. Clearly I couldn't have had a better person to learn along this year and, definitely he is the owner of all my results. ’

‘Matt has coached me for 2 years and was integral in my transition from karts to single seater racing.  His precise data analysis and understandable communication made it simple for me to evolve from a complete novice to a championship frontrunner in a very short amount of time.  I have learnt so much as a driver and owe most of it to him.  My 5 pole positions and 3 wins in 2010 prove that he is an excellent driver coach’.
