Spa 24 hour Pro-AM podiums in 2014 & 2015 were followed by his Le Mans 24 hours debut in 2016 with a 9th place finish in the competitive GTE-AM class.Oliver’s goal is to win the Le Mans 24 hours and is regarded by teams and the motorsport press in the UK as truly competent driver with pace, race craft and maturity beyond his years; all of which is vital in endurance racing where reliability and consistency are as important as outright pace.

Oliver is a highly marketable young racing driver with the ability to promote brands and companies. In 2013 Oliver worked as a brand ambassador for BMW UK and has ongoing relationships with Bremont Chronometers, Close Brothers Property Finance & Duncan Taylor Scotch Whisky Ltd.

Oliver is also an ambassador for the Sean Edwards’ Foundation that works to improve safety standards for drivers throughout motorsport. Oliver is also a well-established driver coach working with other young drivers starting out in the lower ranks of GT racing.
