Who is #Bertgoose?
Bert Goose is Alex’s racing car! It all goes back to his first ever Ginetta GT5 race at Thruxton in 2016.
All drivers have to have their surname in the back window of their cars and Ginetta didn’t have Alex’s name printed out. So, they gave him and the team a big pile of previous drivers surnames and said that they would have to cut out the letters to make something themselves.
The team got to work and laid them all down on the garage floor. The mechanics started having fun making random double-barrelled names with the favourite being Bert Goose. It stuck, and Alex decided that would be the name of his car and it’s carried on ever since. One of the guys was kind enough to design a cartoon of Bert himself and the rest is history!
His picture is always on Alex’s car and this year he has made it onto the helmet and all of the freebies at race weekends.
Wherever Alex races, Bert Goose will always be there racing with him!
