Here’s what people who have worked with Duncan said about him:
“Last season our driver Duncan Tappy was very fast and performed really well for us” – Tottenham Hotspur’s Head of International Development Fran Jones, speaking about Duncan’s 2008 season driving for the club in Superleague Formula.
“We’ve known Duncan for many years – he’s a fantastic, intelligent driver and a great guy. Since we first conceived Pro1000, I’ve wanted Duncan to join us” – Nigel Rees, Managing Director, GSD.
“Duncan fulfilled everything that was asked of him and did a mature, sensible, professional job” – Paul Bellringer, Team Manager A1 Team GBR, talking about Duncan’s appearances for the team as rookie driver.
“Duncan has impressed us enormously with his performance in both the BRDC McLaren Young Driver of the Year finals, and last season in Formula Ford. He has displayed considerable potential and the BRDC is delighted to include him amongst their Rising Stars” – Rear Admiral Roger Lane-Nott CB, BRDC Club Secretary
“As a race day commentator, interview opportunities are usually confined to drivers who experience success or failure on the track. Podium or pit lane. In either type of interview, Duncan is an easy, eloquent, considered, and an all round complete media friendly interviewee. Sometimes commentators have to fill gaps in the action. Only a few drivers can deliver an eloquent and meaningful interview at any time, and this is just such a time that we need them. We hold a few drivers in mind that can do this – good talkers and all round pros. Duncan is one of my bankers. An all round pro. A driver who is learning the trade from every angle for the modern day sport – successful on track, and media friendly off it. I hope the success continues” – Alan Hyde, motorsport commentator
“Stunning! He hasn’t put a wheel wrong. He just gets on with the job. He’s probably the best British driver to come from the junior formulae that I’ve seen for a long time.” – Jonathan Lewis, Race Director – Red Devil Team Comtec.
