Amongst our honorary members of the Grand Prix Drivers Club is Dr Gerry Brandstetter and today ( March 24) he celebrates his 80thbirthday.
Though not a racing driver he has taken part in a number of events but in his early life was much more important as a rally driver and was Austrian Rally Champion.
He has competed in two Marlboro Safari Rallies, once with Austrian rally champion Franz Wurz in an Audi Quattro A2. As a specialist in internal medicine, he has become the Club’s favourite doctor.
All of the Club wish Gerry a very happy birthday.
