Jacopo Sebastianisebastiani_jacopo 

Experienced GT racer Jacopo Sebastiani joined Omicron Motorsport for the Brands Hatch GP round in 2014 and will race with us in 2015.

Prior to the Brands GP meeting (and the test day on the Indy circuit the previous day), Jacopo had not driven a single seater for 20 years, since driving an early 1990’s Dallara F3 in Italy.

Despite this lack of experience, Jacopo acquitted himself very well, fighting series regulars for position, and is eager to do more.

For 2015 and beyond, Jacopo has acquired an ex-Motopark Dallara F311 – VW that was formerly raced in the German ATS Formel 3 Cup and scored a podium position in the opening weekend of the 2015 F3 Cup championship.

Tony Bishop - 2011-2012, 2016-

Tony Bishop

Tony joined us in 2011 for his second season of racing.   We were delighted, and Tristan was in tears, when Tony scored his first race win with us at Snetterton in 2012 after chasing down and passing Malcolm Scott.    A second win followed at Oulton Park, and he finished the season 2nd in the championship, improving on his 3rd place in 2011.

Tony has also been driving in F3 Cup as well and has been steadily making progress throughout the season, and contributed to Omicron Motorsport winning the 2012 Teams Championship.

Tony has rejoined Omicron Motorsport for his challenge for the 2016 Monoposto Championship in his recently acquired Dallara F304-Vauxhall.

Wade, originally from South Africa, travels the globe as a Stuntman and Stunt Co-Ordinator, working on Hollywood blockbuster films including the James Bond, Mission Impossible and Jack Reacher franchises.

Mark Harrison and his family Magic Motorsport team have enviable success in motorsport, winning the British Hillclimb Championship, before moving to circuit racing with the Monoposto Racing Club.

Mark won Monoposto’s blue riband class, Mono2000, in 2005, and mounted successful title defences in 2006 and 2007, before moving to Club F3.   Mark has been a race winner in Club F3 too.

Tristan and Mark were able to bounce ideas off each other which led to both men going quicker, and Omicron Motorsport were able to offer setup advice and data analysis.

Mark and Tristan secured Omicron Motorsport’s second team championship in three years.

Jay Bridger - 2012

Jay Bridger

Jay joined Omicron Motorsport for the 2012 Silverstone Arena GP meeting.   Jay won the British F3 National class in 2008 and has raced against current F1 drivers such as Sergio Perez, Jean-Eric Vergne and Daniel Ricciardo.   He was able to give advice to Tristan and Tony about driving as well as to recommend minor set up changes to the car.    He took a pole position and two second places despite not having driven an F3 car for two years, and his level of feedback was incredible.
