Simon started his racing career on water at the age of 19 racing jet-skis.
This real talent took him around the World and through his career he rode for 2 manufacture teams (Kawasaki / SeaDoo). Between 1996 – 2000 Simon captured no less than 4 British Championship titles and the European Championship title as well as becoming the highest ever placed British rider in the World Championships premier Pro Modified Class (6th Overall)
Simon retired from Jet Ski racing at the end of 2001 and switched to dry land to enter the highly competitive Legends Cars series. This was a steep learning curve for a driver with no previous motorsport experience, but he soon mastered these pocket rockets and was mixing it with the front-runners.
The highlight of Simon’s Legends Cars career was at the World Championships in the USA finishing 2nd in the Semi Pro World Championship in 2003 and 4th in the Pro World Championship in 2010. In 2011 Handy Motorsport launched project BTCC and Simon moved on from Legends Cars in preparation for the 2012 Air Asia Renault Clio Cup.
In Simon’s first season in the Renault he took The 2012 Renault Clio Cup Masters crown & will be looking not only to defend that title in 2013, but to also become a regular top 10 finisher in this years championship.
