Having always had an interest in Motorsport, competing was always just out of reach, finding a cost effective series in the Mk1 MR2's toward the end of 2007 was ideal for me.
Having no prior race experience I purchased a race ready MR2 in January 2008, took my race license (ARDS) in February and was lining up on the grid for my first race at Silverstone in April.
Missing only one race in 2008 and suffering no DNF's, I managed to finish the year as 1st Runner up and was also awarded Best Newcomer 2008, not bad for a Novice !
The season opener at Snetterton in 2009 saw me achieve my goal of a 1st Win, the remainder of the season I was a regular top 5 finisher.
2010 I ran the MR2 for the first half of the season then switched to a Proton Satria GTi for the later part.
Having built a JDM spec Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg over the winter of 2010 I campaigned it on selected CSCC Tin Tops and RDRTC Nippon Challenge rounds during 2011, always finishing in the Class top 3.
During 2012 the Mitsubishi Cyborg dominated its class on every outing in the Nippon Challenge.
2013 we ran a Nissan Pulsar GTi-R, in the Nippon Challenge in the highly contested GT300 class.
2014, a short season mainly running a Mk1 MR2 with a guest drive in the Hyundai Coupe Cup
Since my first overall win in 2009 I have gone onto 24 class Wins and hold 4 lap records.
Poacher turned Gamekeeper
2015, I have reduced my racing activities
and returned to my Clerk of Course (circuit) training. It was always my plan to
give something back to the sport. In 2013 I joined the BRSCC CoC training
program, but at the time I was still racing a full seasons calendar, I soon
found I could not juggle the 2. With my reduced racing I have re-started my
training, this time with MSVR.
