After his retirement from cycling, Hoy took part in the British GT Championship in the year 2014 and participated in the European Le Mans Series previous year, with his team winning the award. In France, his co-drivers would be Briton Michael Munemann and Frenchman Andrea Pizzitola.
The eleven time world track cycling champ along with 7 Olympic medals told that he would not prefer to say that he is Chris – a racing driver. But on his Twitter account, he now has ‘race cars’ at the end of the little list of things. He altered that in the previous week.
He told that now he feels that he feels like a fish out of the water. He could not believe what he was doing there. He did not engaged in this to replace his cycling, but in a lot of ways, he gets to carry on some of the really enjoyable parts of his cycling career into motorsport.
