Thursday 13th November 2003: Emotional Engineering, the Surrey based race team, today announced that development and preparation of its Vauxhall Monaro - due to race in the 2004 British GT Championship - will be overseen by experienced design engineer Alistair Niven. He assumes his role as Chief Engineer with immediate effect.
With over 25 years of experience in motorsport, Alistair provides the team with exceptional practical and theoretical knowledge in the design and development of racing machinery. Recently awarded the title 'Fellow' by the Institute of Engineers, Alistair's wide-ranging experience includes the role of senior lecturer on motorsport engineering design at Oxford Brookes University and design engineering projects for A.P. Racing, Ohlins and Yamaha.
Allen Orchard, Managing Director, Emotional Engineering: "This is a real coup for the company and our partners. Alistair may not be one of the high profile names in Motorsport engineering but he is one of the most gifted designers in the business. He combines an immense range of practical and theoretical abilities. Some of the results he has achieved in the development of engines, braking systems and dampers are mind blowing. Our racing Vauxhall Monaro is in very capable hands."
Management from Emotional Engineering are currently in Australia to finalise plans with Holden for the cars arrival in the UK and experience at close quarters race preparation for the Bathhurst 24.
