Tim has extensive race and instructing/driver coaching experience. He started racing in 1977 after courses at the Jim Russell International Racing Drivers' School in 1976 at Silverstone and Snetterton, and first worked as an instructor there occasionally soon after. Tim won the first Formula Ford race he ever competed in, in the Jim Russell Racing Drivers' Club run races.
After JRIRDS Tim raced in various national Formula Ford 1600 races over several seasons in the early 80s, but was always handicapped by lack of budget. Over several seasons he has also raced in Formula Ford 2000, Formula Renault 1700, Britcar, Britsports, Radicals, FunCup, Honda VTEC Challenge and Historic Formula Ford 1600.
In his instructing career, Tim has worked for Aintree Racing Drivers' School, Anglesey Circuit, Oulton Park, Silverstone, Palmer Promosport (Bruntingthorpe), Rockingham, and Teesside Race School. He is familiar with and regularly instructs/coaches at Anglesey, Brands Hatch, Cadwell Park, Castle Combe, Croft, Donington Park, Goodwood, Oulton Park (his local circuit), Silverstone, Snetterton, Teesside Autodrome and many other venues.
Tim currently concentrates mainly on one-to-one driver coaching and instructing for motorsport competitors and track day enthusiasts.
