Quaife-Hobbs has a remarkable record in motorsport; he was a prolific kart racer and remains the youngest ever winner of an MSA-sanctioned category, having sealed the 2005 BRSCC T-Cars championship at the age of 15 before switching his attention to single-seaters.

However, he made a full-time switch to sportscars in 2015 and joins the FFF Racing fold, sure that his knowledge and experience will create more forward momentum for the team.
