My passion to drive

"From an early age cars fascinated me. I grew up watching F1 in the 1980’s, the era of hugely powerful turbo charged cars and close racing, and I remember thinking to my 4 year old self ‘I want to do that’. 38 years later and my passion for speed and competition has grown and I am fortunate enough to be lining up on some of the most competitive grids in the world."

The Racing Reverend has competed in a variety of cars over 25 seasons having started racing in national karting in the mid 1990’s. Most recently Simon has achieved success in a host of historic racing cars including C and E-Type Jaguars, a Ford Mustang and a Lotus Elan in Europe’s most high profile historic racing series. For the 2022 season Simon returned to top flight contemporary racing with several outings in the Michelin Le Mans Cup.
