Model 996.1 Carrera 2 Year 1999
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!
