2007 MSA British Drag Racing Champion. Began 2008 rattling eardrums with indoor burnouts at January’s Autosport-International exhibition. Outdoors, conquered Easter’s Arctic conditions to win a truncated MSA Rnd.1, then survived two lively qualifying runs at the Main Event (MSA Rnd.2). Engine problems slowed progress at the Summer Nationals (MSA Rnd.3) after a stunning opening qualifying shot of 6.164, just 0.003 off his UK record ET. However, recurrent engine damage suffered during July and August FIA races in Scandinavia and Germany forced withdrawal from competition for remainder of season. UK record-holding Studebaker Commander will resume action in 2009.
