Ac­quired Novem­ber 2015 The 2017 mo­tor-rac­ing sea­son has ended for me, which begs the ques­tion: how has it been? When you go rac­ing there are dis­ap­point­ments, but that sim­ply high­lights the good. The big­gest dis­ap­point­ment was not get­ting a podium, which had been my goal for the sea­son. How­ever, I could see the driv­ing im­prove­ments from race to race. What made this year so en­joy­able was the close­ness of the rac­ing in the Porsche Club GB Cham­pi­onship. The front eight cars were so evenly matched it meant ev­ery race was open. The thrill of rac­ing side-by-side and inches apart is why I race.

I would like to say a mas­sive thank you to my coach, Cal­lum Ma­cleod, he is both an ex­cep­tional driver and has a great abil­ity to coach, a rare qual­ity in­deed. Be­cause of Cal­lum my own driv­ing has im­proved far more than I could ever have hoped, which has re­sulted in a fan­tas­tic year of great com­pe­ti­tion.

Go­ing for­ward I am un­sure whether I can race next year, as the costs are es­ca­lat­ing and the spon­sor­ship is not. If I am back next year, I found spon­sor­ship, if not, it’s a big thank you to Lee for let­ting me share my year with you!
