Team Legacy and Keith Michaels Partnership

Damien said “As stated before, I cannot thank you enough for the support, this season has been amazing, to qualify for the European Masters was a dream come true for me and to win a place on the podium surpassed all our expectations.

We have some big things planned for 2022 and we hope Keith Michaels will continue to work with us next season.”

Here at Keith Michaels, we are always delighted to work with Damien and Steven at Team Legacy and cannot wait to see what the next season brings! What a fantastic season this last one was.

Gary Moulson, the team’s key contact here at Keith Michaels, said “I first met Damien at a Subaru Impreza Drivers Club track day in 2007 and our friendship grew from there. In the years since, we’ve done many more track days together and developed the Keith Michaels/Team Legacy relationship, with me even representing Team Legacy at the Brands Hatch Time Attack event in 2020. We’re incredibly proud of Damien and the team’s achievements during this time and look forward to working closely together into the future.”
