The series I have chosen to race is in the BRSCC Porsche Championship. I chose this over Elise Trophy for several reasons. Firstly I own and have done the majority of my track days in a Porsche Boxster, so this is the car I have the most experience with on track. Secondly, while racing an Elise might be cheaper, their grids are quite a bit larger and to be honest I felt that a lower number of cars on the track at the same time would better suit a beginner.
Through my second job as a freelance sports photographer, I met Rebecca Jackson in early 2011 just as she was starting her own racing career in a Porsche 924 and I followed the season, taking photos mostly for myself, but also for the series website and for some of the drivers. Getting to know more and more of the people involved in the series, I was soon being encouraged to take part, not least by Richard Stryin, who was often on the podium during the 2011 season.
