Bristolian set to be youngest ever British Formula 1 driver 

'Bristol Res' Blog • 08 March 2019

When the 2019 Formula 1 season gets under way in Melbourne next week 19 year old, Lando Norris, is set to be the youngest ever British driver.

Born in Bristol in 1999 Lando Norris had a childhood full of riding motor bikes and being involved in cart racing. He rapidly progressed through the ranks of junior motor racing and announced himself on the world stage after finishing second in the Formula 2 feeder series last year.  With a reputation as one of the brightest talents of his generation racing team McLaren snapped him up and in October 2018 announced that he would become one of their 2 drivers for Formula 1 2019 season.

Norris said his target for 2019 – which McLaren describe as a “rebuilding year” after a poor season in 2018 – is to “progress and become a better driver” and to learn from team-mate Carlos Sainz.”I have spent a lot of time over the winter to try to prepare myself for this moment but there are some things you can’t learn until you are on track and in that situation for yourself,” Norris said.

Recently during the official pre-season practising in Spain Norris has impressed with fast lap times and he is sure to have the support of the whole of Bristol when the Australian Grand Prix takes place ion the 15th March.  For a full 2019 F1 schedule please click here.

Don crowned World Pasty Champion – again !

Lettings Director of our Southville Office Don McKeever proved once again what a great pasty maker he is.

Going into the competition Don was a hot favorite as he held the accolade of being the most decorated pasty-maker in World Pasty Championships history.  With three wins and one second place to his name before this years competition it meant he was the baker to beat.
