    Torotrak Plc

    Commercial Director

    Apart from that
    IMechE – Vice President and Honorary Treasurer

    Association with NAA
    New to the NAA – Torotrak became BE members in November and excitingly have potential projects already in mind! In Flybrid’s location (Northampton area) I have strong links with the Local Enterprise Partnership and other motor-related organisations in the Silverstone area.

    Married with 11 year old son, keen sailor – I sail an RS500 dinghy and larger yachts on charter. I have a single-seater DJ Racecar (0-140 mph in 10 seconds) and compete at events such as Shelsley Walsh and Prescott Hill Climb, and own a Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder.

    Favourite football team
    A complete motorsport rather than a football fan – despite my mother being born on Elland Road.

    Musical performer
    I like a variety of rock music – Foo Fighters etc.

    Bond Movies – especially the most recent, Skyfall.

    Currently reading The Complete Yachtmaster – Tom Cunliffe (2010).

    Best motoring moment
    So many to choose from, however the most memorable would have to be during my time as Technical Director at Renault’s Engine Division and experiencing Renault’s 2005 F1 World Championship win in France accompanied by my wife… unforgettable!

    Best business advice you’ve ever received?
    Philosophy to engineering rather than advice… “He who broke nothing, made nothing”
