I’m Adam Fathers (27) and live in Swanscombe, I have just completed my first year in motorsport racing in the Formula Ford 1600 Champion of Brands Championship, I also competed in the two biggest Formula Ford events world wide – The Formula Ford Festival at Brands Hatch and The Walter Hayes Trophy at Silverstone, both of which events show a very respectful roll of honor with previous winners including F1 stars such as Jenson Button, Johnny Herbert, Mark Webber, Eddie Irvine Sky Sports F1 pundit Anthony Davidson plus many more.
I’ve always had a passion and love for motorsport since I was a small boy watching my uncle compete in formula ford many years ago, sadly when I was just 8 he gave up the sport to start a family. At the beginning of 2015 he decided to re start his engine and make a comeback in the sport our family love so much.
I was eager to get involved with his return as much as I could and before long I was his number 1 mechanic and loving every second of it. As his 2015 season and ‘come-back’ year was coming to an end I came to realise that I could no longer sit behind the pit wall and it was about time I made the plunge and had a go for my self.
I was lucky enough to get myself a car with all the set up I needed that would be ideal to learn my craft in, I’ve had great support from family, friends and of course my uncle throughout my maiden year. My current sponsors have also played a huge part and have all helped so much and without them this dream couldn’t have become a reality.
I’ve now completed over 15 races and have managed to get quicker and quicker each time as the car and myself have developed throughout the year, i’ve also gained respect and applauds from fellow racers and teams in how quickly I have developed considering I have zero experience in motor racing – other than being an avid fan of the sport of course.
This is a developing journey that supporters and myself have loved to keep an eye on, for myself it’s been a huge learning experience both in and out of the car but one that I cant wait to continue into 2017.
For 2017 I will be looking for support from local companies that would like to get involved with both the sport and myself. To run a Formula Ford for the season doesn’t cost 100s of thousands of pounds and you might be surprised just how much you could help me continue this journey into 2017. I ask if you would be kind enough to look through my website to find out more about myself, my racing and possibly sponsorship opportunities at
Please help me to continue this exhilarating roller coaster I’m currently riding and hey, why not jump aboard with me? not only will you enjoy some of the closest and competitive racing the sport has to offer there’s also plenty of benefits on offer for both you and your company.
