Being born within earshot of the Grand Prix circuit at Silverstone I was always going to have petrol in the veins, It proved correct!

 

I have competed in Rallies, Hillclimbs & Sprints since 1990. Cars used include various Mk1 & Mk2 Escorts, a BDA powered Caterham, Hawke DL11 Formula Ford, Lotus Eleven FWB , Alfa Giulia Ti & my current Escort Mk1 RS1600 Rally car.

 

I first joined the Classic Hillclimb class in around 2010 with the Lotus Eleven and have been a regular competitor ever since. I started the ClassicHillclimb.com website to promote the championship in 2011 and its still going strong some 8 years later!.

 

My day job is testing prototype road vehicles. I am the Senior Manager of Vehicle Durability & Testing at Aston Martin Lagonda.
