My Bio


"Student Motorsport was brought to life through my personal experiences as both a motorsport student, motorsport lecturer and professional in the motorsport industry. My passion for helping people has led to the vision and drive to develop a website and community that will help students and young people to enter into the motorsport industry; it's been a personal goal since I started at my first full-time motorsport job in 2008.

It's from my collective experiences in the industry that I have been able to develop the idea and website that is Student Motorsport. I have been lucky enough to study motorsport at two FE (Further Education) and HE (Higher Education) levels where I was introduced to a wide range of subject areas that have helped me to develop the knowledge that I use in my motorsport career today. Subject areas such as 'Motorsport Industry', Engineering Design', 'Competition Car Preparation', Team & Event Management' and Computer Aided Design' together with the hands on experience I have gained working in the industry have all gone towards developing my motorsport career and the website to date.

These collective experiences include my time as an undergraduate and graduate student in motorsport, a motorsport employee where I have worked as a race car technician for many years and a motorsport college lecturer and team manager. Collectively I have a better understanding of what it is like trying to start and develop a career in the industry. Therefore I am able to better understand what support students and young people need in order to succeed in this challenging and demanding environment.

You'll see that our website is a developing and we're working hard to drive our community in which like-minded individuals can come together to share their motorsport experiences. We see the website as a 'vehicle' and 'tool' that together with our visitors and members we can develop to help them in many ways. We welcome your feedback, suggestions and ideas as to the direction the site should take.

Please feel free to contact me for any questions I am more than happy to hear from you."

My Business Tips

So my small business tips are:

1. Time to stop – Your productivity and focus will drop, have a ‘cut off’ time for working and stick to it…be kind to your mind and body.
2. Believe – You must believe above and beyond in your product or service, surround yourself with positive people, you are a product of your environment.
3. Prioritise – Have a daily/weekly to do list, physical ticking things off is good for the mind, but remember it’s ok for a plan to change.
4. Staff – If you are lucky enough to have staff take care of them and reward well, they represent your brand.
5. Cash - Be sure to 'take care of the money'...As Theo says 'cash is king'...try to save.

Read, take part and share your passion with the group.
