About me

My proudest moment in Motorsport came in May 2016 when the Classic Sports Car Club awarded me the Barry Carpenter memorial trophy for `the person who best embodies the spirit of the club`. This was for my volunteer work in media to promote their Special Saloon + Modsport series. Considering all the good people in the club who actually race the fact an ordinary enthusiast off a council estate in Mansfield should be recognised in this way was a real honour.

Above- with legendary driver Tony Sugden who joked he`d won 300 races but never was given a trophy as nice at that one I had been. Think I only get to keep it for a year though. Anyway we both got dragged up to say a few words after the Silverstone race.
