Two-time champion in 750 Motor Club Classic Stock Hatch Championship (2009 and 2011). He is the current class lap record holder at Croft, Snetterton and around Donington Park National.

In 2016 Pip won 8 races (6 in Porsche 2 in Nova) and set 9 fastest laps in his 14 races. 

2016 has been a reinvigorating year for my racing career, having been part of a group founding PDC Racing and competing in both the Porsche 924 Championship and Classic Stock Hatch – scoring 8 wins in 14 races this year. The performance lead to an invitation to test Zest Racecar Engineering’s Seat Leon Supercopa at Silverstone in October.

Prior to racing, I competed in 4x4 trials events with various Land Rovers, sharing the vehicles with my father.
