Main hobbies are anything Radio Controlled.
Started Racing R/C Model cars in 1975 with an 8th scale 3.5cc Stockcar with some National and International success. All without sponsorship! Inspired by the local fullsize F2 Superstox team.
Raced most scales and classes, but had to retire from the Nitro Methanol engines due to Excema around 1990.
Turning to Electric and the larger 5th Petrol Touring cars and Topstox, also some Karting, taking part in Charity events headed by Johnny Herbert.
Winning a Local series, followed by a National final win sponsored by McLaren F1, the prize was a pit lane walk at the F1 GP in Estoril, Portugal.
