“I have always had a passion for cars and motorsport. Before I could drive, both uncles (past clubman rally driver/co’s) used to take to me to motorsport events – mainly the British Rally events, to spectate and then later to marshal at the events.
After I got my licence I was mainly into show cars for a couple of years, and attending pretty much all of the car shows that were on. However, as soon as insurance became affordable I started with the Japanese car scene and bought a Mitsubishi Evolution 5, which was tuned to just under 400bhp. Whilst getting involved in this scene I started attending a lot of local Trackdays (Cadwell Park, Rockingham) both in my Evolution 5 and a track prepped Renault Clio 16v.
Being interested in the modified JAP car scene I couldn’t help but notice DRIFTING! So in 2004, I decided to give it ago in an old S13 200sx. I did one practice day at Silverstone and I was hooked.”
