Who Am I
I have a thrill seeking personality, I have held passenger rating in gliders, completed a defence force parachuting course, bungee jumped and generally lived life at full speed.
I have been competing in motorsport when funds allowed since 1997.
Unfortunately it wasn’t often that funds did allow.
I have managed to place well relying on my skill, driving cars such as a stock 1972 KE20 corolla, a stock and worn out 1986 Ford laser and a basically stock 1992 charade. It wasn’t until 2014 that I finally managed to build a reasonably competitive car and start a small race team with close friends and family called CrunkenSlide Racing.
The car, a modified 1974 ke20 Toyota corolla affectionately called Smurfette.
I have always had a passion for speed
I have always relied on my skill and not my budget
At events I generate much interest in my driving style. I get the attention of officials and spectators alike for driving to the max! People tell me I am crazy or I drive like I’m possessed but I am not! I am just able to pedal a car as though it is an extension of myself.
From an early age I had dirt bikes, and was fortunate enough to drive cars from about 11 years old. I learnt to drive on dirt, I learnt to drive fast, i learnt to drive sideways.. that’s right fast and sideways on dirt! A nearby rally driving local legend saw the potential in me and gave me a few pointers and allowed me to train on his practice track. It is difficult to explain my ability behind the wheel, it is as if I become one with the car, I know what it’s going to do before it does it, I can feel what it wants and needs. I don’t need to force my control of the car, it comes naturally. Although I still enjoy driving on dirt, I find in recent years my passion has moved to racing on blacktop where I have had much success.
In all state level events I have competed without mechanical issues I have placed top 3 in class.
I competed in the T86RS and finished 13/35 competitors after only receiving points from 3 of the seasons 5 rounds.
