About

Gladiator is a well-known team owned and backed by successful, popular English businessman Tony Langley.They continue to make improvements to their all round performance although, like many of their contemporaries, struggle to hold on to the top level consistency which contributes to podium finishes.

Langley runs three TP52s and currently enjoys mixing up his team’s programme, also racing in the USA and at home in England at key, personal favourite events.

Last season saw the Gladiator team forced on to the back foot when an initiative to tie in with the British America’s Cup programme suffered a last minute change. Nonetheless they put a solid team together, owner Langley embracing the idea of bringing on young talent rather than just hiring in top guns.

Tony loves his sport and must rank as the hardest working owner-driver in this business!
