My Racing Days
I started my working career as an apprentice motor mechanic and after 4 years I was qualified. I trained on Jaguar, Rover and Triumph and loved every minute of it. I also spent a few years working on BMW’s and was very impressed by the engineering and quality.
I was and still am very keen on motor racing and with a friend decided to have a go at oval circuit racing. I raced a Mini at Kimbolton Raceway a short circuit oval between 1978-79. I managed two first and two seconds.
Here’s me lapping a backmarker. I’m in the blue car. This car was powered by an A series 998cc revving to 8,500R.P.M with a Weber 40 DCOE twin barrel, with many other modifications. I built the engine myself.
