Previous racing experience (if any).

Not great with dates, but it’ll be near enough:
1989-1992 – Cardiff Kart Club, Pembrey.
First Novice Race at Pembrey, End over end at first Corner on a Wright/TKM Ka100 Junior Britain.
Cardiff Kart Club Champion 3 years running, all Senior Britain or 100B. On Swiss Hutless K2000, Parilla TT27, later a Birel/Rotax VMB. Three Times Welsh Champion.

Final Year 1992 I Entered the first NKRA north south championship thing. Final was at Wigan. Struggled there in a Bedford CF using more oil than fuel. Seized two IDK Engines. Hired an almighty Rotax DSB from Paul Carr. Mega Pace in the double apex onto the LONG straight, inches behind kart in front slows and raises hand, I pass, as I saw the yellow flag. Won the race by three seconds. DQ’d for passing on yellow flag. I pleaded with stewards, to no avail. Disheartened and disgruntled, last competitive race in a kart until a brief come back in a max at Llandow around 2008.
Attempted Super One Max Heavy 2011, Broke a rib at Whilton Mill. Totally unimpressed with Max Karting.

 

What got you involved in F100?

Got involved with Alan Dove and F100 original in 2010 at Rye. Discovered RetroRacer and then Oliver Scullion. Followed Oliver around at RetroRacer for a season, that went pear shaped, Oliver had a good idea, I went with it, now here I am, and it’s all good.

 

Who do you come karting with?

Mostly arrive alone, Oliver and his Dad Emmett help me out, if you see me on the grid, I might need a push J

 

Goals for the season?

To overcome my lack of commitment to overtake. To gain in pace the few tenths I’ve lost. To win a kart race after a mega battle.

 

Most of us have a bit of kit that we want more than anything, but don’t have, what bit of kit is it for you?

IDK Twin spark Reed to go with the 90’s Birel I still have

 

What kart and/or racing drivers inspired you when growing up?

Nigel Mansell, Ayrton Senna. Karting: Jaime Spence, Darren Gibbs.

 

If F100 was like boxing and you walked to the grid with your song playing, what would the song be?

Out Loud: Iron Maiden, Run To The Hills
In my ear: Stephane Wremble, Bistro Fada. (It calms me)
