Thrills, Spills, Spins and Donuts at Goodwood Festival Of Speed!

As usual the weekend was an explosion for all senses…sounds, sights and of beautiful machines, the smell of burning rubber from spins and donuts and the taste of typically unhealthy snacks! What a great event – some pics below! Weather was hot and sunny and I was lucky enough to see Lewis Hamilton and Desire Wilson (one of the only women to race an F1 car) being interviewd!

It looks like this time out and change of intensity worked well judging by his and McLaren’s performance in qualifying for the German GP this afternoon.

Anyway, I digress….back to Goodwood! Chris Evan’s collection of Ferarri’s was truely a sight to see – so too were the 1960s/70s concept cars from Alfa Romeo and Vauxhall (….yes a Vauxhall..I was surprised too!!)

But the car that stole the show was the Cartier winner – the 1938 Hispano-Suiza!

Had a great time at the event. Can’t wait for next year!!

Which one’s your favourite?

Talk to y’all soon

Had a great day at Porsche Human Performance centre, Silverstone where Mark Webber spoke about his diet, training, approach to race weekends….oh and ofcourse ‘that’ injury!!

Thanks to all at Porsche Experience for a cool day. I met lots of cool racers and learnt some new stuff too…which is always good : ) so I can go out there and kick some more ass!!!! : )

I was having a chat with someone a few days ago about the differences of racing a rear-wheeled car to a front-wheeled car. Surely its just a case of understanding the weight distribution and loading forces of a car under breaking, during and after a corner which is important.

If you know and understand where the power is distributed and when then isn’t it a case of adjusting your style and understanding to suit? As a racer I find understeer incredibly frustrating – I just want to get on with exiting the corner. Now for me it would be good to change the set up and/or understand the car better and adapt my style to suit. Thats what’s so cool about racing – you have to work through problems, learn and adapt…..cool..bring it on!!!!

Racing updates coming soon….: )

Well have spent some time over the Summer adding to the book. I kinda left events to unfold as I spent much of the summer with an ice pack on my foot. A couple of months later after having to wait to see a consultant, x-rays and MRI showed a fracture to one of my Sesamoid bones. So I couldn’t do much but wait! I decided to add to the book as there were areas I had left out which I wanted to amend. The trouble with being a Forex Trader is the market moves so quickly its difficult to add everything….especially recently! But what I have done is to write about the areas everyone should know to give you an understanding of how all the areas fit together including a really great, effective and yet simple strategy.

It has given me something constructive to do aswell as trading, working on the web site and setting up my trading club on Ecademy which I’m really enjoying : ) So the foot is still being a pain in the ass but have a boot brace to limit the use so it gets better – at least there is some improvement.

Its funny how things work out : ) I really want to be training again – I miss my training buddies at British Military Fitness! I also miss racing massively…have been working on that one too! I always like to think of how I can turn a setback into an advantage…believe me I have done it many times!! Its a challenge and you have to think out of the box and creatively but there’s nothing worse than feelin sorry for yourself. I guess I have a ‘can do’ approach!!

So managed to get lots done over the Summer and am lovin gettin to know you guys out there. Hopefully you can all hear about my racing progress too next year….!! 🙂

Stay cool and pop by to say hi anytime 🙂

Professional Race Driver and Forex Trader

The amended book!

Trade FOREX From Home

A few years ago I was working out how I could earn enough money to quit my day career and commuter hell to follow my passion for car racing and be financially independent. Having found buying and selling UK stocks not profitable enough for short term returns I enrolled on an expensive financial trading seminar. After the course I traded many of the markets but found I was increasingly disillusioned by trading the UK stock market and binary trading. Following on from conversations with other traders there it was – the Foreign Exchange platform or FOREX

This had to be where professional traders made their money and I wanted to know more!

The trouble was there was so much information on the internet about FOREX trading – where would I start? Since coming across this problem I decided I wanted to write a book (download the first chapter for free here) to explain the essentials of FOREX trading in layman’s terms. For this reason, I wrote Trade Forex From Home keeping it really simple, easy to follow and to understand with some basic trading techniques which if followed has the opportunity to get your Forex trading account up and running in no time. I wanted to share my journey and communicate how anyone can trade the FOREX market.

It’s taken nearly three years with juggling my day career, sponsorship hunting for racing and sometimes working part time to fit trading into my daily routine, in addition to researching and writing the book, to reach this stage. That’s years of research, reading, learning, practicing trading set-ups and seeing what works.

Please take a look at my new web site and book available here – www.tradeforexfromhome.com if you would like to know more about trading the FOREX market.

I hope you enjoy the read…….

With best wishes for a successful FOREX trading career.

What a great race – a fantastic end to the season! Well done to Lewis Hamilton and McLaren. As always racing is such an intriguing combination of team and driver – one can’t succeed without the other. Winning is always the sum of all parts especially in Formula One.

WELL DONE TO EVERYONE INVOLVED!

I can’t wait for 2009 season to start! I should be on track too in 2009…..still working on things here as always..
