Matt PollardMatt Pollard… now 27 years old, an aspiring race driver with a greed for speed. 

In 2021, I joined Prodrive, the world’s leading independent motorsport company, as a Parts Coordinator, providing support to Aston Martin Racing teams at circuits across Europe. So, that put an end to my personal racing career due to being away at a track for work on many weekends.  But I’m loving the experience of attending race meetings at the major European motorsport venues and helping our AMR drivers and teams to succeed in the various GT4 championships.

I live in Berkhamsted and Banbury. Having completed an Audi Apprenticeship programme, based at Hatfield Audi, I moved to JZM Porsche and then to my current role at Prodrive.

I’m not a spanner monkey…. I don’t think Lewis H has ever changed a wheel. It didn’t slow him down.

Take a look at my Past, Present… and Future, and my Car history.
