    BROTHERS Adam and Nathan Gotch celebrated winning their first NSW Formula Three title by declaring their intentions to take on the national circuit next year.

    The Snake Racing/AGI Sport team led by driver Nathan and team manager brother Adam combined their extensive years of motor racing experience to establish the Peakhurst-based race team.

    “We grew up in a motor racing family and spent our childhood around race tracks,” Adam said.

    Nathan raced the four cylinder Dallara, winning 11 out of 15 races including setting three lap records in the five round event. Adam spent time as a grand prix mechanic for Williams’s F1 team and as team manager of Australia’s entry in the A1 GP world cup of motor sport. Nathan raced the Bathurst 12 hour event twice.

    “Our long term ambition is to find the next Mark Webber,” Adam said. “We’re looking at two cars next year, one for Nathan and another for a youngster to give them training in the F3 in Australia and help them on their way to Europe.” It cost $50,000 to run the car this year, and that will double on the national level in 2013.

    NSW state championship win 

    PRESS RELEASE – NSW State Championship Win


    Snake Racing/AGI Sport have had another successful weekend winning three from three races in the final round of the NSW State Formula Championship at Wakefield Park, Goulburn. The team have also achieved their goal of winning the state series in their first year in Formula 3.

    Driver Nathan Gotch also re-­‐set his own Formula Race Car series lap record for Wakefield Park with a time of 57.35 seconds during Race 3.

    Nathan said “It feels really good, one of our main goals was to win the championship before we step up to the national series and it was really good to have the championship locked away after Race 1 on Saturday”.

    Team Manger, Adam Gotch said, “The team has had a great year, Nathan has won 11 out of 15 races, pole position at every round and won the NSW State title so we couldn’t be happier. The plan next year is to move up to the national series, hopefully with a couple of cars, so we are looking forward to 2013.”

    The team did have a shot at two of the national rounds in 2012 and Nathan scored a maiden class win at the Shannons Nationals at Sydney Motorsport Park on July 15.

    Nathan is looking forward to stepping up to the national championship next season. “It will be good to travel the country and compete against the professional drivers. This year has gone well and with a bit more testing I think we have a good chance at the ‘National class’ title for the ‘04 model cars within the AUS F3 Championship in 2013.”

    The team achieved all their goals for their inaugural season and more with an outright lap record on the North Circuit layout at Sydney Motorsport Park in a time of 58.89 seconds during round four of the NSW State series on 23rd September.
    Snake Racing /AGI SPORT Formula 3 team was also funded entirely by sponsorship during the season with a mix of ‘in kind’ and cash deals.

    Team Manager Adam Gotch thanks the sponsors, “We have had some great support on board this year from a number of ‘value-­‐in-­‐kind’ sponsors with the likes of Valour Apparel, Exclusive Customs, Social Tap, Baileigh, PPG & Oxley Graphics all supporting us in 2012. It’s allowed us to successfully compete in a state championship, win that championship and move on next year to the national series.”
    Nathan agrees, “We do want to thank the sponsors, we can’t do it without them, Snake Racing helped us out a lot, coming to the party with funding, Aquafire Protection is a great sponsor of ours and Truline Plumbing. These guys put their hands in their pockets to get us to the track and hopefully they are all happy with the results.”

    The team are currently in talks with drivers to field a multi-­‐car team in the Formula 3 Australian Drivers Championship in 2013. Once again, we hope to bring you plenty of action from the track and look forward to being a team to watch in the future.

    AGI SPORT takes outright lap record at Sydney Motorsport Park 


    SNAKE RACING/AGI SPORT takes outright lap record at Sydney Motorsport Park

    Snake Racing AGI SPORT Formula 3 driver Nathan Gotch has set a new lap record on the new GP North circuit layout at Sydney Motorsport Park. Nathan’s time of 58.89 seconds beat the previous Formula 3 record by a substantial 1.9 seconds and shaved 0.1 of a second off the prior outright record set by Adam Procter in a Stohr WF-1.

    Nathan said, “It felt really good, we only had a small window to get the job done, by the time the tyres finally came on in lap 4 we were actually catching the tail of the field, luckily we got one hot lap in!”

    The NSW based Formula 3 team had a successful weekend increasing their points lead in the NSW Formula 3 Championship by winning the first 2 races and fighting back from 9th to 2nd during the final race after stalling on the grid.

    Team Manager Adam Gotch said of the second place, “Nathan did well to recover in Race 3, another lap or two and it could have been 3 from 3. It gave him a good opportunity to practise his race craft coming back through the field and we are very happy with the overall result of the weekend.”

    Driver Nathan Gotch also praised the new North circuit. “The new up-and-over between turns 4 and 5 was really exciting, it makes for a really quick lap but that just adds another element to racing at Sydney Motorsport Park.

    The Snake Racing / AGI SPORT Formula 3 team have concentrated on a state level program this year ahead of a full national assault next year. Nathan has driven in 2 of the 5 National rounds this season to finish 5th in the national points with Hayden Cooper winning outright. The team hope to secure the NSW State F3 Championship at the final round held at Wakefield Park, Goulburn on November 3 & 4, 2012.
