Profile

Simon has proven himself time and time again in the karting arena with natural speed and ability. He has raced against incredibly established opposition to become champion of various karting competitions many times over - He knows what it takes to win. As a down to earth young guy with a sensible head on his shoulders,

 

Simon is ideally placed to become one of Motorsport's aspirational drivers with an unstoppable future in motorsport.

 

Simons karting achievements include many championship wins, including four times winner of the Le Mans 24 hour kart race and the current holder of the 24 hour distance World Record, 

In 2013, Simon moved away from Karting to car racing for the first time, joining the Motionsport F4 team to compete in the inaugural Formula 4 Championship.

 

An invitation into the last round of the Dunlop British Formula Ford Championship as a guest driver with Falcon Motorsport was a great opportunity and although Simon never tested the car prior to the event, he qualified on the front row for all 3 races and resulted in a class podium to finish the year off.

In 2014, Simon joined Tony Gilhams Team Hard outfit to complete in the VW Racing Cup, Britains leading one make saloon car championship. A steep learning curve to convert from open wheel. open cockpit cars to the tin tops proved 'interesting' with the re-invented team.

 

In 2015 and 2016, Simon stayed with the expanding Team Hard and 2016 this partnership resulted in many podiums.

Considerations for 2017 were plentiful and made the early decision to stay with Team Hard, stepping up to the Ginetta G55 GT4 to compete in the Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championship with team mate and friend Tom Barley.

In 2018, Simon will again be competing in the Britcar Dunlop Endurance Championship with team mate and friend Tom Barley with Team HARD.

In 2019 a change of team to Rob Boston Racing to compete in the Pro Driver class of the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup with the Ginetta G55 GT4. We had limited budget to compete in this high level event and could only race 14 of the 23 races, but still achieve a 6th place in the Championship, with 2 podium finishes, a big thank you to the sponsors who made this possible.

2020 was the covid era, so we has a year off, like many people, racing was on hold.

In 2021, the budget couldn't stretch to the Ginetta GT4 SuperCup (shame), but we decided to be realistic about cost and to get the most out of our budget for my sponsors, we competed in the Focus Cup 2021 and won the Championship.

In 2022, we welcome our new headline partner, GRD Lifts & Engineering along with our long supporting partners Jackson, VTS, Momentum, DJmotorsport and Lester and defended the Focus Cup Championship title and secured 2nd.

In 2023, we returned to Endurance racing in the Fun Cup Endurance Championship with Team Axia Metrics GRD and welcomed on board ESL alongside our existing partners. Car 103 had varying results in this very competitive championship, but still we were able to secure 5th place outs of a grid of 28 cars.

Now onto 2024, we are again competing in the Fun Cup Endurance Championship, with reigning Champions Team Olympian and major backing from GRD Lifts and Engineering. Lets see if we can retain the championship.
