2016 was another fantastic year. I made a personal gain in how I drive, thanks to the coaching and support of my fantastic race friends, and I had some superb results.
In the SE46 sprint races (ICSCC Season & SCCA Rose Cup) I had a wonderful time. I finished on the podium of every race I entered. I secured 3 pole positions, 2 race wins and two 2 track fastest laps in an SE46 (Oregon Raceway Park and Portland International Raceway) from 8 races.
In the endurance season it was a different story. Car troubles dashed hopes of a win in all 3 races entered (6 Hours of The Ridge, ChumpCar VIR 24 and the 25 Hours of Thunderhill) but racing with fantastic drivers, crew and friends made them both fun experiences and in some cases better than expected results with dogged persistence.
This is a story of the season in photographs thanks to the excellent work of Doug Berger who shot for me all year long. Enjoy!

It was another year of amazing experiences and I couldn't have done it without the fantastic support of my friends, race partners and teams. A massive thank you to Hank, Sam and team from Advanced Auto Fabrication, to Cameron Evans at Red Line Oil, James Clay at BimmerWorld and the fantastic folks at AiM.
Roll on 2017 and all that it will bring.
