Been signed in for a few days now and thought i would say hi.

I do not currently own a Ford road car, but i do have a couple of Zetec engined Formula Fords sitting at home.

I currently reside in the Middle East where i'm employed as the Head Instructor at Bahrain International Circuit. I would love to tell you all its a naf job and i pray each day would pass quickly so i can get home......................... But that would be a blatant lie!!!

I have owned plenty of old school Fords, Cortina's Escort Mk2 and 3's XR3I's XR4i's and a cossie, plus a few XR2's and the obligatory Orion 1.6ghia! guess i was a bit of a boy racer when i was younger

Am loving my Mustangs at the moment, we have a few nice ones that come to the track regularly. as part of my duties i'm expected to drive them every now and again :0) they just give smiles per miles.

Please check out my vid i posted of a film we shot in June of this year. the more hits i get the more money my sponsors will front up for racing. am hoping to be back in the UK this October for a serious effort at winning the Formula Ford Festival at Brand hatch. We will have the film crew with us, and the next one will be bigger, better, and more dramatic!

Thanks for reading, and have a great day!

Yeah like Lenny said, i apologise if i come across rude, I was definitley having a laugh. its hard on a forum to show emotion and feelings, its just something we all leaner about each other and when were all joking or not.

Again I'm not being an !Removed!, I'm just jealous :) welcome
