    Association with NAA
    AMRC is a one of the largest research organisations in the UK. Originally focused on Aerospace research, we now work in multiple engineering sectors, including Automotive. Introduced to NAA through Festo at 2016 Awards dinner – very impressed by the NAA’s work and partner list!

    Why did you join the NAA?
    I believe that we can be of assistance to NAA members with regards to funding – both UK and European. We also want to provide assistance and improve links to the automotive supply chain.

    Recently engaged and due to get married April 2018. A petrol head – very slowly restoring a 1993 Mazda MX-5. Have also restored a Triumph TR5 and Jaguar E-Type within the family previously. Also support, as a mechanic, classic touring car racing and rallycross events with friends. Also enjoy the outdoors – often visiting Bamburgh, Northumberland and a family’s farm in Hadleigh, Suffolk.

    Best motoring moment
    Two weeks after passing my driving test being asked to work on my family’s farm in Suffolk to support the harvest. After a 5 minute ‘driving lesson’, being handed the keys to a 15 ton Massey Ferguson Tractor and 10 ton trailer and being told not to go too quickly and don’t drop any wheat!
