MGI founder and CEO Mike Gascoyne has forged an illustrious career at the pinnacle of motorsport over the course of two decades, having studied for a Ph.D. in fluid dynamics at Cambridge University. It was his passion for motorsport that would see Mike would step into the Formula 1 paddock for the first time in 1989 as the Head of Aerodynamics at McLaren. One year later, he moved to Tyrrell where he worked for designer Harvey Postlethwaite. The pair got along so well that when Harvey moved to Sauber in 1991, he asked Mike to join him at the Swiss team. Harvey returned to Tyrrell in the Autumn of 1993 and asked Mike to join him once more as Deputy Technical Director.
