"Allan was a major part of activities with our VIPs when Formula One first visited Bahrain. We invited Allan to share his insight into the sport, acting as a UBS ambassador. He was the consummate professional, effortlessly engaging the audience, many of whom were new to motorsport, adding to their enjoyment of the Grand Prix."

"My biggest regret is that I do not get to work with Allan enough. He is by far the most dedicated, consummate professional I have had the pleasure to work with. The care, attention to detail and preparation he puts in to any event or activity is second to none. The fact that Allan is able to communicate fluently and eloquently to large and small audiences make him the number one choice."

"Allan was contracted to deliver several presentations and workshops with regard to being Elite for UK Sport's pioneering development programme Elite Coach, in which he was able to communicate the constituent parts that make up operating at the highest level. These presentations led to UK Sport requesting Allan to mentor highly rated Judo Coach Graeme Randall during his time on the Elite Coach programme. I would not hesitate to recommend Allan."

McNish Aims For Elusive Daytona 24 Hour Race Victory

Britain’s Allan McNish aims to get his 2013 season off to a winning start by claiming his maiden Daytona 24 Hour endurance sportscar race victory next weekend (26-27 Jan).

 

Dumfries-born McNish has previously finished second three times in the twice-around-the-clock Daytona race, the most recent by less than six seconds last year.

 

Audi Sport “factory” driver McNish, a two-time Le Mans 24 Hour race winner, competes for a second successive year in the Rolex 24 At Daytona for the burgeoning American Starworks Motorsport team.

 

McNish shares a Riley-Ford with Sébastien Bourdais (France), Ryan Dalziel (Scotland) and Alex Popow (Venezuela) in the annual race staged in Florida before the Scotsman begins his race programme with Audi Sport.    

 

“With our driver line-up plus the team’s engineering strength, I think we have a very good chance of success,” believes McNish. “With an entry of around 60 cars, competing in three different classes, racing on a track that’s just over three miles in length, there could be just two or three clear laps during the entire race distance so many unforeseen things can happen.

 

“So long as we’re in contention entering the final hour, then we’ll be in with a good shout. Last year we finished a close second so we’re all especially determined to rectify that and claim the winner’s trophy.”

 

The Bourdais/Dalziel/McNish/Popow Riley-Ford posted the sixth aggregate fastest time in official testing at Daytona earlier this month (4-6 Jan).

 

Allan continued: “The test went well. I instantly felt good in the Riley which I hadn’t driven since last year’s race. We were consistently fast and worked through a lot of the set up ideas.”

 

McNish, who attended Autosport International in Birmingham (12-13 Jan) before visiting Scotland for two days, arrives in Daytona on Wednesday (23 Jan) having been in California with personal sponsor, Simraceway.
