A big thanks to Nigel Greensall for getting me up the grid. 2011 was my second full season racing in a great fun, single-make formula – Mighty Minis. In the first season I had never made it into the front pack, even though my car was on top form and my support team were doing a great job. The speed problem was with yours truly.
Following some lessons with Nigel using the VBOX, I started to move up the grid and into the top three in the championship by mid-season. I also managed to get my first pole, first podium, first win and fastest lap. This was over two races at Snetterton following some tuition from Nigel at the same circuit. At Rockingham I had a fastest lap – again after some teaching from Nigel. For me the combination of VBOX and Nigel made that crucial difference from being mid-field to running at the front.
