NAME: Roberto Giuseppe Bonassisa
D.O.B: 22ND October 1970 (Cowley, Oxford)
NATIONALITY: English (Italian parents)
Goal in Life: To drive in the MGF Cup and eventually
Occupation: Senior Mechanical Engineer (Rover)
I left school at 17 and joined Rover
Group as an engineering apprentice. In the ten years I have worked
for Rover, I have progressed to senior mechanical engineer. Ever
since an early age, Motorsport has always been an interest of
mine, so much so that at the age of 15 I entered the world of
Motorsport as a competitor.
1995/4 Helped to form a racing team, working with
Rover and British Motor Heritage, resulting in Team Cowley MG.
Also used this time to Test and develop the MG R.V.8. for racing,
which was the first MG R.V.8 in the country to be raced.
1985 - 91 Competed at club level in 100cc and
250cc karts when funds Permitted.
My engineering knowledge and
ability have helped me when it came to the testing and development
of the MG RV8 race cars. I believe that having this type of knowledge
is very important in a driver especially when it comes to setting
the cars up for the race. I hope to carry this skill on for the
1998 MGF Cup Championship, and perhaps extend it to my ultimate
goal, which is touring cars.
M J Motorsport has been
established since 1990. The experience in the team is second to
none, form the mechanics through to the technical department.
That is why I have chosen M J Motorsport to launch my assault
on this years MGF Cup along with the other two members of the
team, Mark Jones and Barry Benham.
