I have a wide experience of endurance racing in both Sportscar and GT classes. Competing in events such as the Le Mans 24hr Race - regularly running in the leading group.

Along with Leon Price in 2011 we dominated the GT Trophy Endurance Series and the UAE GT Championships in Leon’s Ferrari 458 GT3, achieving a string of 7 successive pole positions.

Since 2012 I have competed with Von Ryan Racing in a McLaren MP4-12C in the Blancpain Endurance Series and in with FF Corse in a Ferrari 458 GT3 in the British GT Championships.

RACING MEMORY

I enjoyed Interlagos in the Le Mans Series. I was driving for a Porsche customer team, Perspective Racing. We didn't have the greatest result but from a personal perspective I remember being very happy to drive so well at Ayrton Senna's home circuit.
