Welcome to my website! 

The 2009 season was an exciting and eventful one for me. I competed in LMP1 in the LMS and Le Mans 24 Hours, plus historic races, and then in July I sold my five-year-old race team, Strakka Racing. That sale marked a great accomplishment for me as an owner, manager and driver. I built Strakka from the ground up, and then achieved my goal for the team and myself by finishing the Le Mans 24 hours in LMP1.

I feel very fortunate to have enjoyed such a great career so far—29 years and counting! Though I’ve driven a huge variety of great racing cars over the years, two results stand out.

The first is starting 11th in the Ginetta-Zytek LMP1 at Le Mans in 2009—and then finishing the race was awesome. (Let me know if you’d like to buy a copy of my Le Mans 24 Hours – Limited Edition Pictorial Book.)

The second standout for me is winning the RAC TT at Goodwood and being awarded “Driver of the Meeting” in 2008.

Of course, if I think back, there are really many other very special moments. What one stands out for you?

My love of racing and motorsports hasn’t waned, and I want to say how grateful I am to all my fans, as well as to my family and friends, for their support and encouragement over the many years. You know who you are! Thank you.

While I now devote much of my time to other interests, I’ll be at the usual historic races in 2010. I hope to see you there!
