Don't be rubbish // 5live's Jason Swales continues his racing driver education

Published by Mr. C

The last time we caught up with 5Live's F1 producer Jason Swales, he was passing his Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS) test at Silverstone.

Following on from his success, Jason took part in a Ginetta Club Series event on May 16th at the same circuit. He took part in two races and a video capturing the action has been posted by the Beeb.

I'm not sure I learnt as much from that footage as I did from the first video. I'm curious if all racers in lower series have to run with an F1 specification HANS device and NOMEX underwear? Either way I do quite fancy a run in a Ginetta G20 now, they look brilliant to drive.

Jason handled himself remarkably well all things considered, despite the pre-race heckling from Croftie. I loved the "rockery in the car park", and Davidson is just made for a role on TV. Here's hoping for more races in the future.
