Track Days                           

For years I couldn't see the attraction of trackdays, I thought that a good blat through the lanes was all I needed for a . But after participating in the Owners' Parade Lap at the L7C International 2000 at Brands Hatch, something 'clicked' inside and I realised just what I could be missing. However, partly through fear of the unknown and partly through not wanting to make a fool of myself, I didn't venture onto the track until July 2001 when I took part in the Novices' Day arranged by Cadence Driver Development at Bedford Autodrome. This event was to be my first real insight into trackdays and subsequently in May 2002 I booked myself a place on the L7C trackday at Cadwell Park. I arrived with more than a little apprehension, had a truly amazing day, caught the bug and, as they say, the rest is history. To this day, Cadwell Park remains my favourite UK circuit. In 2009 I ventured into competitive motorsport and I started sprinting and hill-climbing in the Lotus 7 Club Speed Championship. As a result of this track days have ceased, although I still look forward to driving circuits such as Oulton Park and Spa-Francorchamps.
