Fan of cars through out the ages, naturally must be petrol, racing cars, grand turismo and sports cars, road and track. A preference for closed wheels rather than open. Preference for 2 seaters, then four-up followed by single seaters.
I have worked in the motor industry for all my working life, and have no wish to change.
I have worked as an engineer and designer in car manuifacturers, I cannot draw to save my life, though I develop the surface materials for the inside and outside of cars. This is a great job!
What car(s) do you own?
Currenty I own a BMW 130, strictly for the road and rather boring.
What do you like to do (e.g. vintage race with...)?
I like to watch races, the Goodwood Revival, attend Concour D'Elegance, photograph & film, collect book, films, models and memorabila about cars.
I am a regular fan of Radio Le Mans who broadcast throughout the year on motorsport in general with a healthy bias towards the various Le Mans Series around the world and many of the 24 hour races. A great source of information is their Midweek Motorsport Facebook Collective. http://radiolemans.com/ http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=5508588715 (for the Midweek Motorsport Facebook Collective, we are currently at just over 650 people!)
What clubs do you belong to?
BMW Classics, Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club and Sir Henry Royce Memorial Foundation.
What would you like to do (e.g. go to race school; get into Vintage Racing)?
To be honest I really like to watch, smell, hear cars with souls. I have been driven in a number of great cars throughout the ages but have never actually owned one of these great cars. I have also had various expert driving courses, though have never had the chance/balls to race in reality.
Thanks for the fantastic comment on my page. Knowing that you guys getting such a good time out of watching my films and having you all pack your bags to go to all those great events is just great.
This is what Christopher Tate of the Masters Series wants me to forward to you:
"Oh and let Kris, below, know, the Oporto thing looks very difficult this year, but in a crowded calendar with so little time for such long diustance trucking, in a hard budget year, it was always going to be so. best C
and we are now on teh same date at Magny C"
Great to have you on board !
