I’ve set up this blog to cover my first moves into motorsport. Some people might think that late forties is a bit of a strange time of life to start something normally associated with fit young people, but for me it was a case of wanting to do something with my life – something for myself more than anyone else.

So, having done a few track days over the last couple of years, I took and passed my ARDS test at Bedford in November 2011 and obtained my National ‘B’ novices race license for 2012.
