Bio - Right, where do i begin? I have no nick-name as far as i know lol.. i first started racing in bmx when i was 12 years old went on to be number 6 british champion in 1985 and east midlands number 1 17+ class in the same year. after that i went into moto cross and bought myself a kawasaki zx 250 and dabbled a bit. after that started doing jet skiing with my mates at week ends.. then found myself entering go kart races using the circuits own karts. after racing all over the uk at most circuits me and a few mates entered a local league at pfi. and we went on to win summer and winter leagues for 3 years. we then decided to buy our own kart and race six hour endurance racing in a championship held every month at pfi where we finished 6 overall out of 30 odd kart teams.
I was a big ford fan at the time and have owned various rs cars from sierra cosworths to escort cosworths and i started going to meets and did my first track day at donnington park in my sierra and got hooked and have done track days every year since the 90s. i tried to do most circuits before i started racing so i had a bit of an idea.
Been a keen motor sport fan i have always gone to the auto sport show at the nec. this is where i saw the civic cup and various other motor clubs etc. but also been in the motor trade i new a honda would be a good choice as they are quick and reliable car. so my decision was made when a got home that i would start racing. and i haven't looked back. you're only here once enjoy it while you can! I had an amazing first season winning the civic cup and meeting and racing against some great friends. as the say its the civic cup way. good racing,good friends,good times. bring on the next season.
