About James
An accountant by trade...

Top race highlight
The 2013 Academy Grand Finale at Silverstone, 3 cars wide through Club Corner when the monsoon arrived.

Racing achievements
5 podium finishes in my first season. Most proud of Brands Hatch; racing for a friend who was paralysed in an avalanche snowboarding.

Accomplishments outside of racing
Raced on skis & mountain bikes for 7 years. 5 knee ops and a jaw reconstruction later my surgeon advised a knee friendly sport; motor racing it was.

What's the best thing about racing
The mental and physical challenge combined with the rush of adrenaline... followed by beers and banter with your mates.

Hobbies
Skiing, kitesurfing & cycling. General tinkering with cars of various shapes and sizes.
