The roots of GMS date back to 1994, when David Griffiths set up the Kent based team to help to try to use his skills and knowledge learnt over the years of UK and European competition to creating a winning kart racing team.

After several years of competing in different championships and acting as a race mechanic to several successful drivers, in 2009 Griffiths united a number of drivers under the GMS banner, competing with a fleet of the team's newly developed X30 Chassis.

In the subsequent seasons, the team competed in a range of championships, taking numerous victories at club and national level, proving a competitive force at all types of track in both sprint and endurance events.



In 2012 the team continued to score wins and podiums at club events, UK national championships and the Rotax World Finals, with X30 customer chassis proving dominant in the OEKC endurance series. With an expanding customer base and a new tie-up with Gillard Karts to increase the chassis options available to the team and its customers, GMS continues to go from strength to strength going into 2013.
