Born in Halifax, UK in October 1965. Married to Jan since 1995, 1 daughter Jessica born 1997.

Big sports fan, but main one is motorsport. Been following F1 since early 1976 (when I was aged 10). That is my main love!
Been Sim Racing against others in offline leagues since 2001. Used to help run the F1VWC (GP4 game offline sim with rules in place for Team Managers to improve on track performance of car).
Team owner - 'Phoenix Racing' team.
R2P Independent Chapter (League) owner for:-
- 'As Real As It Gets' (ARAIG) - previously using the fantastic ARCA Stock Car sim, from May 2016 using rFactor 2 for our Stock Car racing.
- 'Showcase Sim Series' - all things NOT rFactor1.
I'm definitely not the quickest, having to spend a lot of time practicing before an event to get up to (my) speed! However, I simply love the competition / challenge / variety of racing here at R2P.
