During the Bathurst 12 Hour weekend we caught up with Andrew Kirkaldy who you may know from his career at CR Scuderia, Scuderia Ecosse and most recently, leading the team to develop the McLaren MP4/12C with CRS Racing.

He is best known for his GT racing, taking the British Championship in 2005 for Scuderia Ecosse.  He also finished third in the GT2 class of the 2006 24 Hours of Le Mans.
