I have always been driven to create new things whether in Lego as a kid (still do with my 2 sons!), a custom kart for Down’s children as a teenager or motion system for racing drivers. I was well grounded into the world of automotive engineering at Ricardo designing bike engines for Aprilia to V6’s for GM, having left the studies of aircraft at Bath University. My transition from real to simulated cars was aided following a visit to the Yoda of simulation one summer in Pebble Beach. Me the ways of simulation from its earliest beginnings he showed. This gentleman was the head of simulation at NASA Ames, working on the jet packs as used by James Bond!

Life is never slow paced with me, having had the privilege to lead a great team into launching a race team in 3 weeks and the first formula race centres in 3 months.

As CEO of PTR, I get to engineer this new approach to motorsport. BTW I’m also a local church pastor.
