Austin may weigh a lot less than a ton, but boy, he packs a punch! Coming from a long line of miniature champions, he used to be one of England's premier rally racers. Austin's power-to-weight ratio fooled many competitors into underestimating him, leading to a string of British championships and a long-term role as a crew chief. His reputation for racing success was the key in Nigel Gearsley's request to be coached by Austin at the World Grand Prix.
