Became involved in rallying in 1996 then more seriously in 2000 when I joined Dukeries MC. Having marshalled and done 86 radio and worked my way through the ranks to stage commander and chief marshal roles within the club and on events, I decided in 2001 that I wanted to start competing so built the Nova with a friend - Marcus - and started competing with myself driving and Marcus codriving and vice versa during 2002 then took the car on myself at the end of the season. 2003 started well with a class win on the 1st event in March but engine failure during the 'shakedown' event at MIRA caused a few headaches. Met Sean last year when I visited the Rally Carnival as a spectator, became good friends and I asked him if he'd codrive for me as I thoroughly enjoyed the Carnival experience and wanted to be doing it.

My introduction to the Barbadian rally scene and rallying in general, was an 11th hour call by Antonio Rodriquez (see below), to help with rally control for the Texaco rally (1998). I spectated at various other events, but continued to work Rally control for the Texaco rally and finally in 2002 got to see the event for the first time.  That same year, Paul enquired on a British rally internet forum about the Carnival, and after a number of emails, Paul and I met when he came down to watch the events of the Carnival. Paul decided after seeing the event in 2002 that he wanted to participate in 2003 and asked if I wanted to Codrive for him. It would of been my first time Navigating a event, but Nicholas Gill needing a temporary nav, gave me some seat time (Thanks Nick) on the BRC's first stages rally of 2003.
