I started my Racing Career in 1990 when I attended the Jim Russell 7-day Race Driver Training course which concluded with my first ever race in which I came 2nd. I did a few other races in 1990 and concluded with a 3rd place in the prestigious Jim Russell "World Scholarship" where I came 3rd. This was an impressive result as the other competitors where all Jim Russell graduates from all over the World. 1991 saw me start my own IT business which left little funds for racing but I was fortunate enough to be asked to train as an instructor with Jim Russell. This was a great honor as my fellow instructors at that time were the likes of Chris Hodgetts, Kelvin Burt, Anthony Reid, Warren Hughes, Dario Franchitti, and many more top drivers.
The following years saw me progress as an instructor and Driver Coach with Jim Russell whilst also doing odd bits of racing and rallying and winning the vast majority of them, including winning the 1993 Saloon Championship despite only entering 75% of the races, all of which I won.
I drifted away from formal instructing in the late 90s as my IT business was flourishing but still keeping up my Driver Coaching both in the UK and overseas, I worked in Russia, USA, Europe, South Africa & Australia. I returned to formal (ARDS) instructing in 2000 and am now a Grade A ARDS Instructor which is the highest instructor grade. I continue to provide expert and professional Driver Coaching both the Racing and Trackday drivers.
My racing has moved more towards endurance racing over the past few years with many races in the Britcar series plus odd sprint races as time allows, rarely off the podium and many wins. In 2007 I will again be mainly competing in endurance races, including the biggest race in the world, the Nurburgring 24hrs and also the Britcar 24hr race at Silverstone.
Much of my work comes from referral and recommendations, hence the somewhat sparse website but interested drivers are welcome to call me on the above number to discuss their requirements. As well as in-car tuition I can also provide data-logging and analysis services and in-car video and analysis.
