Isn't it funny how some of the biggest

Put in for the SMTA young aprentic of the year 2000 walked away with the SMTA cup(Scotland )
Entered for the national even 2000 at NEC Birmingham took second place.
A load of letters later landed a job with a private team running Peugeot 306s same team worked on ASCAR(NASCAR to you Dan4th) wth Jason plato & Daren Turner as drivers they both won the title.
Then Renaullt Clio that team won twice when he there.
Got job with RML on BTCC then WTCC now BTCC and also Lola Judd endurance car .
