Competes In - Mazda MX-5 Club Victoria/Tasmania Sprint Championship
In 2016 I took the plunge and made moves to turn my passion for cars and driving into an actual hobby. This culminated in the purchase of a 1999 Mazda MX-5 NB8a. I now compete in the MX-5 Club of Victoria/Tasmania Sprint Championship which sees the club attend Phillip Island, Winton, Sandown and Broadford. In my first year of competition with the club I have won the Sprint Championship (Overall), the Standard NB Class Championship and Rookie of the Year.
I've also had a chance to compete at endurance events including the Phillip Island 6 Hour Relay and the Alfa Club Winton 12 Hour Relay. It's certainly been a fantastic year of motorsport with a great bunch of people and I couldn't be happier to have started turning my dreams into reality and look forward to continuing down this path over the years to come.
