      Biography

      Developing an interest in cars and racing at an early age it was not until I reached 18 that I started karting. Initially at Buckmore park, back when it was just 600 metres. 35 years later I still like to jump in a kart when I can.
      In 2002 I took up club level superbike racing at various circuits around Europe, such as Rijeka, Hockenheim and Magione. Self employment forced me to behave for a while, but the itch to race wouldn't go away. I started out gaining some instructor qualifications in 2018 and on my car racing career in 2019. I have now turned my love for racing into my full time job!

      Biography

      I entered further education and became a qualified mechanical engineer in 1970. Amazingly, in 1966, my racing had already begun at Wimbledon Stadium in a self-prepared Ford Anglia at the production car finals, which I very nearly won. From there I went to a course at Brands Hatch Motor Racing Stables in a Formula Ford. In 1974 I raced a Special Saloon Ford/Lotus Anglia with a podium place at my first race. From there, I went on to set up my own specialist car workshop (Rossi Engineering). I eventually closed the company in 2000 to pursue other interests. In the early 1990s I began my career in motoring journalism with several magazines, becoming the Chief Test Driver for Auto Italia magazine. In 2023 I launched my book, "Confessions of a Test Driver". In 2000 I became a qualified ARDS race instructor. In 2015 I gained a new coaching qualification launched by Motorsport UK. All the above gave me massive motorsport experience. Today I offers my unrivalled experience to private clients as a race coach and set-up consultant specialising in historic race cars. I am London-based and offers clients expertise at race circuit.
