Michael always had a passion for motorsport from a young age, with his childhood home backing onto the Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuit, but it was only when he started his own business and enjoyed a little success in life that he got the opportunity to realise a dream and race.
Based out of Broadstairs, Michael joined Buckmore Park kart circuit in Kent where he quickly shined and won a number of local championships, before enjoying further success in endurance competition with his team being crowned British champions.
Continuing to impress in karts as he qualified the team on pole position in the Sodi world finals, before an entry into the Henry Surtees Foundation charity race saw him post the fastest lap of the day, win his class and finish in second position overall.
In a bid to take his racing to the next level, Michael entered the want2race competition and narrowly missed out on a fully funded race season in the Ginetta GRDC series, but his impressive display led to an offer from W2R Motorsport to compete in GRDC+. It was at this time that Michael met Vince Caldicott, owner of Premier Contract Supplies, who believed in Michael’s talent and provided the full support needed for him to compete. He duly repaid him with a superb seven wins and top five finishes in every race on his way to the title.
With a title under his belt in his first season of car-racing competition, Michael moved to the Ginetta GT4 Supercup for 2018 behind the wheel of a 380 bhp Ginetta G55 GT4, and despite a big step up in competition, he truly excelled once again. Competing in the Am Class against a number of more experienced rivals, Michael was a revelation as he stormed to eleven class victories and eight further podium finishes through the campaign on his way to a superb second title win in two seasons.
Establishing himself as one of the most exciting talents in the TOCA package, Michael caught the eye of leading British Touring Car Championship outfit Team HARD. Racing and will now compete with them in the highest profile and most prestigious championship in the UK.
