Superstitions at the Race Track / Garage: None

If you could change one thing in racing, What would you change: The serious side, we’re there to try and win for ourselves but also put a show on and create entertainment, with drivers moaning about when they get it back or put in hard. What would these drivers do if people like Bobby Burns and Super Stu were still racing today, as they lived by “What happens on track, stays on track”. If the fun stops then so will the fans.

What is the most underrated thing in racing: The commitment of preparing the cars and transporters for the season and race meetings. The actually challenge and difficultness of racing a stockcar and competing at any level, especially at the top (I will let you know when I get there). Publicity of the meetings are not good enough. Fliers or adverts could be used.

What is the most overrated thing in racing: Smiths and Wainmans

Years Racing: 12

Final Wins: 2

Most memorable racing moment: Winning GN Championship from the back of the grid.

Most forgettable racing moment: The Tony Smith #91 incident.

Future racing plans: For the new transporter to be ready for the start of 2013 season. To be as competitive as I possibly can and to keep smiling and enjoying it.

If you wasn’t racing you’d do be doing what: Street racing possibly
