Andrew, he drove an orange XR2 in the S+S race in 2003, I think it was? It must've had twin webers or something, I thought he would play it clean but I was wrong. See 1st June 2003 "other races" in the gallery, dicing with the Mini. Interestingly, I think after he barged me out, I think his car started to slow and he broke down or got beaten by that Mini, we were both vastly quicker than it.
I retired due to a moisture build up in the fuel filter at the hairpin exit on the 1st lap in my wee blue non XR2 Fiesta.

Interesting to see peoples thoughts on the man. I thought his driving at the weekend was super. Been telling my drivers for years to cut out the chicane and Clark as it only slows them down. That aside I have to say that he has taken his chance and made the most of it. He is a very strong character and has a ruthless streak that you need to go far. If the money keeps coming in he will be around for a very long time. I just hope, as commercial development manager for Knockhill he puts as much effort into his day job as he has done with his racing. Although the place looked well for the BTCC a blind man can see that more is required if it wishes to attract other crowd pulling series. Perhaps they have given up spending money for the racers and are going the equestrian route for a reason. That said the Knockhill team have done well to keep the place alive.
