A Brief History:
The new 2016 GBR Team can trace its roots back to the early 90’s when Chief Engineer Andy Crook first started helping prepare cars for competitive Motorsport. Andy’s early motorsport experience was based around rally cars and wearing bobble hats, but he had caught the motorsport bug.
Team Principle Stef Matuszak (Muzz) left his native North East for the bright lights of Swansea in 1998 to pursue a definitive motorsport career after spending his early years cutting his preparation teeth in various disciplines including Formula Renault (1700 and 2000) with Innovation racing. Having enrolled on a Motorsport course at Swansea Institute he was denied the chance to join the SIHE Race team due to having A levels in the wrong subjects !
Not to be held down and not having “can’t” in his vocabulary he left University after 6 weeks and set up his own Team.
Like all true teams, to say that “Matuszak Motorsport” was a shoestring operation was somewhat of an understatement. The team often left it`s base without the money for the diesel for the return trip! The young upstart was soon proving his metal at National and international events his cars winning races and multiple championship titles.
This success attracted drivers, sponsorship, and along with a band of engineers and technicians specialists including Andy, the team gelled, evolved and (due mainly to his unpronounceable surname) Muzzrace was born.
Moving into Ginetta Junior in 2007 saw The Muzzrace team training many up and coming drivers from their earliest circuit experiences. Taking the championship in 2008 with 10wins and 15 podiums Most of these drivers have now grown into motorsport household names like,

After a short break from racing during which time the team concentrated on building its tuning performance development and training arms. The guys at Muzzrace Now known as “Gotboost” were asked to build a team from scratch for Buddy loans.com.
