A MOTORSPORT PARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITY
INTRODUCING PIERS HICKIN
In his short career Piers has demonstrated through his driving that he is a
“huge talent with considerable potential” – Kieren Clark. Since his
explosive arrival into motorsport, the superlatives have been as numerous
as his racing. Instinctive, determined and a real talent have all been used
to describe Piers and his racing aptitude.
Piers’ limited time in a racing car compared to his peers has not restricted
Piers’ success, and the results he has achieved in such a short timeframe
have been impressive, winning races and attracting the converted MSA
Academy to invest in his ability.’
Now on an accelerated career path, Piers will be building on the
achievements to date, with a full time professional racing programme.
