Michael started racing sprint cars half way through the 2010/11 season with his only background in motorsport being in motorbikes. Racing motocross as a young boy and teenager and moving to enduros as a young adult Michael took a big break from sport while building up his business. After a few years he was keen to get back into motor sport. After suffering a few injuries on the bikes but still wanting the thrill of motorsport he discovered sprint cars through a friend he grew up with. Not one to mess about he brought one and entered his first race. Michael has loved the sport ever since.
