About Paul
Not a lot to say really - just feel so envigorated by the chance to do this cateram stuff - I wish I had done it earlier!

Top race highlight
Just the feeling of finishing your first race is amazing - yes you can do it! (but with help from Caterham!)

Racing achievements
To do it!

Accomplishments outside of racing
First qualified as a metalwork teacher - taught for eight years then thought there might be something more so ended up self employed! I still think that teaching was a great job back in those days (perhaps viewed through rose tinted glasses)

Family
Son Jon (who thrashed me in the series) and daughter who is the sane one choosing scuba diving as her sport

What's the best thing about racing
The feeling of competing with other Caterham drivers but also everyone supports each other. The thrills, heart stopping moments, trying to do better than come last and then trying too hard

Hobbies
Caterham - discovered in the same month as I collected my bus pass and have enjoyed every minute since then
