Race day with Katie Milner

Katie Milner race day

Back in May, one of our lovely customers and UK junior racing driver, Katie Milner invited us to join her on the track at Thruxton racing for a fun experience day!

With a double British Rally Champion for a father, Jonny Milner, the passion for motorsport runs in the family and Katie took a keen interest as a child.

Katie was voted ‘UK’s Most Successful Junior Female Racing Driver’ in 2016 and has continued to dominate the podium since, so joining Katie and watching her race was a real treat.

Race day with Merlin International was a wonderful experience. I very much enjoyed every bit of it. This was the first time ever I have been to a race event and as a first timer, I was delighted with high expectations. I was not disappointed at all.

Merlin International rolled out the red carpet for the 9 Group team and we were treated to VIP hosting. In addition, I was star-struck when I met Katie Milner because I had previously watched a film about her on TV practicing a lap on ice. You bet I had to get an autograph! And a few selfies of which some are already posted on my Instagram.

Watching fast cars (being a Fast and Furious fan) on a lovely sunny day, meeting the wonderful Merlin International Team and the whole vibrant atmosphere was just fantastic. I really enjoyed myself and I trust the whole 9 Group Team had a good time too.

A massive thank you to the Merlin Team for having us.
