|Tim has extensive race and instructing/driver coaching experience. He started racing in 1977 with courses at the Jim Russell International Racing Drivers' School and first worked as an instructor there occasionally soon after. He won the first Formula Ford race he ever competed in, in the Jim Russell 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. He has also raced in Formula Ford 2000, Formula Renault 1700, Britcar, Britsports, Radicals, FunCup, Honda VTEC Challenge and Historic Formula Ford. Instructing, 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, Goodwood, Oulton Park (his local circuit), Silverstone, Snetterton and Teesside Autodrome and many other venues. He currently concentrates mainly on one-to-one driver coaching and instructing for both competitors and track day enthusiasts.
