Ross Gunn is a 20 year old British Racing Driver, currently competing in the European Le Mans Series with Beechdean Aston Martin Racing. In December 2015, Ross signed with Aston Martin Racing as a Factory Driver after winning their Evolution Academy.
Ross started racing in 2005 when he was just 8 years old and despite racing on low budgets has managed to dominate the field and establish himself as one of the most talented young drivers of his generation.
In 2011, Ross put himself firmly on the map by winning the British Super One MiniMax Championship in his first season, and topped it off by winning the British Kart Grand Prix in the same season.
He then followed that in 2012 by British Super One Junior Rotax Championship, also his first year in the championship, making him the first person ever to have won both champonships consecutively as a rookie. This impressive display of talent was continued with a 4th place finish in the 2012 Junior Rotax World Championships in Portugal.
Having dominated karts, Ross made the move into single seater car racing in 2013.
Racing in the BRDC F4 championship for team Motionsport, Ross clinched two race victories and finished the season 10th overall.
A lack of budget in 2014 meant that although Ross didn’t compete he spent the time working on his fitness in the gym and on the simulator, and also provided 1 to 1 tuition to up and coming kart racers.
In March 2015, Ross signed for the Beechdean AMR team to compete in British GT championship. An incredible year followed, with Ross and team mate Jamie Chadwick clinching the championship with a race to spare. This made them the youngest ever driver pairing to win a British GT championship.
