Meet Chris Gorne

Working in close collaboration with Leon Price and Sylvain Filippi, Chris works as the team’s Technical Director heading up the engineers’ department. Educated at Coventry University, Chris boasts more than three decades of frontline engineering experience in virtually every level of motorsport outside of Formula 1.

Starting in the design office of Reynard, and then working in many of the feeder series to Formula 1 including GP2, WSR 3.5 and Formula 3, Chris worked for manufacturer teams in Le Mans Prototype Sportscars and Touring cars, benefiting from the quality of professional drivers and partners to achieve championship successes.

In January 2016 Chris joined the team having briefly consulted for competitors in Formula E. He is an invaluable member of the company, still travelling to races, whilst directing through his engineering team the planning and smooth operation of simulation, race strategy and driver performance. When not working, Chris now enjoys dabbling in property development and pottering in his garden.
