24 year old Peter from Chester-le-Street has been involved in the sport since 1998, starting in karting and for the last two years in the BARC Westfield Sports Car Championship - last year recording 3 wins, 4 second places and 4 pole positions and finishing 2nd overall. This has given him the confidence to step up to Formula Ford. This season Peter is competing in the Scolarship class, and after the first two events is lying in third place.
Formula Ford has been a launch pad for many drivers who have gone on to bigger things. The list includes drivers who moved on to Formula 1 including such names as James Hunt, Nigel Mansell, Damon Hill, Jenson Button and David Coulthard.
Races take place throughout the summer and autumn at tracks including Brands Hatch and Silverstone, with TV coverage on Sky Sports.
I know very little about the sport of motor racing - but will be keeping in touch with the results as the season progresses.
