I’m a GP in Swansea in South Wales. I like to think I’m in the prime of life but my kids and my trainee think I’m middle aged
I’ve always liked doing practical mechanical things since I helped my Dad fixing cars as a kid and have been into motorbikes and cars since I was a teenager.
I first did trackdays when I had a Mitsubishi Evo VII but realised smaller, lighter cars offered more fun and would be cheaper on track. So I built my first kitcar, a Westfield Megablade. I tracked that quite a bit and did a hillclimb in it. I sold that and built an Ultima GTR which was magnificent but frankly I never really got on with it terribly well. I didn’t really fit in it comfortably and maybe because of that never got all the niggles sorted out.
The Fury was built specifically with the 750MC RGB race series in mind. The build took a long time because some of the issues that cropped up made me lose interest from time to time but I’ve got there eventually.
I’ve done lots of other silly things in my life, including building the house we live in and quite a bit of sport including half a dozen Ironman distance triathlons.
As a GP I’m involved in lots of teaching and have been an examiner for the Royal College of GPs’ MRCGP examination for over 10 years. I’m also an examiner for the medical finals exams at Cardiff University. I run a course on the MRCGP Examination and published The nMRCGP Handbook in 2008.
