Race History / Success

I’m returning to circuit racing after five years of co-driving in the New Zealand Rally Championship. My most notable succeesses have been in the passenger seat, and I’m hoping to have some fun from the driver’s side now. I have also competed in a homebuilt 7 since 1998, raced karts and have been co-driving rallies since 1996.
I compete because I love to drive and I bought the SR3 after much consideration and discussion (a huge amount of thanks to John Mines for getting me on the right track!), as I think it offers a really good package for reliable and quick motor racing. My goals for the season are to complete as many rounds as family and work  commitements allow, finish every race I start, bring home the car in one piece every time and have a huge amount of fun doing it.
