A couple of photos of the car in build. I will be adding to these over the coming months.

Looking Good at Brands Hatch in May 2013
I have been racing cars since 1985, firstly in Hillman Imp Special Saloons and then from 1994 in the Esprit V8 silhouette special racer.
From 1994 until 2007 the Esprit was powered by various Rover V8 based engines, in 2009 a 5.5 litre Chevrolet LS6 V8 from a Daytona Sports prototype was fitted, this high spec engine produces 575 bhp and transformed the car completely.
2013 was an amazing season when everything came together, from 17 races I got 10 wins and 5 second places and was crowned NW Sports Saloon Car Champion at a dramatic season finale.
Sadly on inspecting the car in preparation for the 2014 season I discovered severe fatigue cracks in the spaceframe and had to scrap the car. I am currently building a new spaceframe and hope the car will be ready for the 2017 season.
This site is full of information, photos and race movies of me in the Esprit and in my Imps, there are sections on my Chevy LS6 engine and the previous Wildcat V8 engines.
Coming soon I will be adding photos of the new car.
I hope you enjoy my site ...... Simon

The last season racing the 'old' car was very succesful, below are details of my 2013 season.
