Who is Blake Angliss?
Meet the dynamic and resolute racing sensation, Blake Angliss.
Born and bred in Coventry and with a professional career in the motor industry already behind him, from his younger years he always longed to be behind the wheel and winning trophies on the racetrack. His early career in motorsport has left an indelible mark, setting the stage for a compelling journey to continue into 2024 and beyond.
After a triumphant six-year stint in karting, Blake seamlessly transitioned into the realm of car racing, debuting in the exhilarating 2020 Ginetta GT5 Challenge. His passion for speed and skill led him to further heights in the GT4 Super Cup, where he showcased his prowess. Bolstered by a stellar maiden campaign, Blake returned in 2022 with his sights set on a class title.
In a dazzling display of talent, Blake notched up an astounding eight victories and an impressive 17 podium finishes, securing the Vice Champion in the fiercely competitive G55 Pro category. This outstanding achievement has poised him for a thrilling leap into elite endurance racing in the imminent future, underscoring his determination to conquer new horizons on the racing circuit.
After proving how fast and skilled of a racing driver he is in the past few years, Blake then set his sights on high-level endurance racing, looking to grab opportunities in the British GT Championship, taking his racing journey to a whole new level.
Blake’s Journey with Concept
In June 2023 Blake reached out to Concept Garage Equipment after seeing how active we were on social media and that the company offering aligned well with both his interests and his motorsport passion, he felt, and we agreed that we seemed like the perfect fit as a sponsor for Angliss Motorsport.
Our first race together was in the same month at Silverstone racetrack over the weekend of 1-4th June, where Blake was racing in the Ginetta GT Championship driving a brand-new Ginetta G56 GTP car for the first time, where he enjoyed a sensational set of races with four race victories and a clean sweep of six podium finishes from six races!
Having the Concept Garage Equipment logo and name emblazoned on the side of the car may not have improved Blake’s speed, but it certainly set the tone for the rest of the 2023 race season, where Concept, along with TOPDON sponsorship continued to support Blake with his many further visits to the racetrack.
What does Blake drive?
Blake has driven some incredible cars in his racing career from a Ford KA to the Ginetta G56 GTP car in which he stole the show (and all the trophies!) throughout 2023, and it’s a testament to his driving prowess how he can adapt to a wide range of vehicles, engine sizes and driving styles with seeming ease.
In his personal life too, Blake has had a range of cars, including a DS3, Jaguar and his prized John Cooper Works Mini.
TOPDON Diagnostics to the rescue
Having experienced some issues with the JCW Mini, and with an engineering background, Blake was keen to resolve these issues himself, learning something from the experience at the same time.
Blake purchased a TOPDON Phoenix Elite Diagnostic Tool, as this is a professional-grade diagnostic scanner which gives Original Equipment (OEM) level capabilities and works with up to 200 models of vehicle, including the JCW Mini.
After learning a little about how to use the diagnostic machine and its capabilities Blake was able to resolve his car’s diagnostic issues and clear the error codes at the same time. Of course, he has the diagnostic machine for the next time something goes wrong with any of his other cars too.
TOPDON join team Blake!
Having seen Blake on the racetrack and as well as the impressive podium wins, TOPDON were blown away by the exposure that Concept Garage Equipment had gained from this, and the additional business leads that had followed by being involved in this area of the motor industry, and they were quickly keen to get involved too.
TOPDON alongside Concept GE will continue to sponsor Blake into the next level of racing he’ll be doing in 2024, and we will be following his progress closely, and watching Blake race to success from the pit lane.
