a youngster he prided himself on knowing about cars specs
like engine output and top speeds.
His dream car as a youngster and still today is the FERRARI
F40. He also raced radio controlled model cars from the age
of 8 to 18, and in the 10 years achieved many milestones

cars really came into it's own and for his 21st birthday he
bought himself the iconic GOLF GTI.

surprise did really well. He decided to convert his everyday
road car into a racing car and entered the SUPER HATCH

racing car to varsity everyday, roll cage and all!

called SKID based at Zwartkops raceway. It wasn't easy in
the beginning, but it was the beginning of an amazing career
in the advanced driving instruction line.
He moved to BMW advanced driving, then Audi and
Mercedes-Benz. Initially he started as a junior instructor
but worked his way up to a point where he would run events
and be chief instructor.
At this time he met South African racing car drivers that he
had only watched on TV, drivers like Anthony Taylor, Hennie
Groenewald, Derek Irving, Deon Joubert, Graham Nathan,
Reghard Roets and the like. These South African legends
where instrumental in his development as a racing car
