TEAM FORMULA FAST
The people responsible for preparing, organising and operating your event are key to your enjoyment, and we’ve got a close-knit team with bundles of enthusiasm, commitment and experience who’ll do everything possible to provide you with a friendly, welcoming environment to compliment an exciting race.
Formula Fast also prides itself on operating competitive race events to the highest standards of fairness, with an emphasis on quality racecraft, rather than getting ahead at all costs.
This can only be achieved with a knowledgeable team, and we’re lucky to have a group of seasoned professionals with many years experience as both drivers and officials. They keep a close, unbiased view of the action on track to ensure your place on the podium is down to competence rather than contact!

Owner / Sales & Marketing Director
Oliver Fox is no stranger to speed, as he can often be found exploring the performance limits of anything on two wheels.
When he’s not tearing up the tarmac on motorcyles, however, his enthusiasm for adrenaline manifests itself at Formula Fast where he’ll be talking you through anything from the best technique (this time on four wheels) on our GP circuit, to the ideal race format for you and your guests.
Ollie worked in one of Oxfordshire’s leading musical retailer as a Sales Executive before joining Formula Fast full time in early 2011. Oliver took over the role of Sales & Marketing Manager in 2012. With qualifications in Customer Service, Ollie utilises to great effect his wealth of experience in both sales and events management.
Ollie became Sales & Marketing Director in early 2013 following the management buy-out of the business and has a hands-on role in the day-to-day operations of the new venue. Be sure to give him a wave next time you’re down on the track – he’s also our most prolific Race Director.
