Amanda Whitaker & Anthony Dunn announce their marriage on 20th March in Darlington, County Durham.
The pair have been together for 10 years having met whilst instructing at Silverstone.
They got engaged in Durham 14 months ago and finally tied the knot at a civil ceremony at the Hall Garth Hotel, Darlington.
Amanda is a 3 times Monoposto (Single Seater) Champion and also won the European Historic Formula Atlantic title in 2006. Recently she has been racing in HSCC Historic Formula Ford in a Mk8 Elden, narrowly missing the title last year to Westie Mitchell.
Anthony is an ex-Formula Vauxhall Junior graduate and BARC Formula Renault race winner. He won the Radical SR3 Enduro British Championship in 2007. Last year he finished 2nd in the SPEED UK series and won the European series partnering Barry Gates.
Despite 40 years of racing experience between them, they have only competed against each other once at Croft in the SPEED series in 2008 where Amanda beat Anthony by one place!
They both plan to race this season, with Amanda testing her rebuilt Elden Mk8 Formula Ford 1600 and recently acquired TIGA SF78 Formula Ford 2000 at Teesside Autodrome prior to racing at Cadwell Park on April 11th.
Amanda will be keeping her maiden name for all racing, instructing & professional purposes.
