Jim Marsden: Lead Gigglepin Racing Driver #69.

Jim started racing in 2000. Rising through the ranks he is currently the most successful Off-road racer in Europe with over 70 podiums and over 30 titles to his name. 2015 was gala year with Jim winning the biggest and toughest events in Europe and being the man to beat. 2016 started with Jim and team building an all NEW race car to help him concentrate on Ultra 4 and Trophy raid events. The new car “Little Lady” was launched in September 2016 and won the Graf trophy in Portugal and King of Britain back to back! The new car is packed with innovation and new ideas but the team are still making several improvements over the winter and “Little Lady” will be the car to beat in 2017.

With full factory support from Maxxis Tyres, Fox racing, ARB 4x4, Spidertrax, Gigglepin winches and a further 20 other partners, Jim is well placed to continue winning at the highest level.

Allen Sharp: Gigglepin Racing Driver #960.

Allen learnt his trade in the tough world of UK Winch Challenge. Joining the Team in 2012 he has quickly risen to the top and is dominating the UK scene. If it’s in the UK he has won it! 2014 saw Allen competing abroad for the first time and dominating his class, Europe watch out! His calm, professional demeanour allowing him to drive places others can only dream of.

2017 will see Allen in a brand new race car which will keep him ahead of the game once more.

 International co-drivers.

Jim interchanges between co-drivers, with the legendary Wayne Smith travelling from Australia, Helder de Rocha from Portugal and UK based Alex Wilson and Mark Birch each having their own unique talents and having such specialities ensures Jim can plan to have, and be the best at any event over any terrain. UK based Ben Turpie joined the team with Allen back in 2012 and Ben is usually Allen's weapon of choice.
