Paralysed from T7 down in a Scuba Dving Spinal Bends accident in 1989 whilst wreck diving off Eastbourne, I spent 9 months in Stoke Mandeville and told I would never walk again.
The spinal legacy caused many problems and recovery was slow with the leg breaking a second time before fusing properly. After being banned from bikes by worried wife, bought a 928 then I took up organising trackdays, which turned into a desire to race.
The MSA were cautious and thorough but granted a licence and here we are.
Being an automation and control engineer helps!
6 races to date, 6 finishes, and an improvement from the back of the grid to the middle.
Some way to go with the car development and especially the driver development. I have found that in-car video is very useful for analysing driving.
Finally starting to feel the car and gain confidence.
I love the tracks especially Brands Hatch, and the general feeling within HSCC and especially 70s Roadsports is really friendly and welcoming.
