In his career he has been both an Aston Martin and Bentley factory driver, and whilst with Bentley, he helped them secure their first win on British soil in the Blancpain Endurance Series at Silverstone before later that year being awarded the John Cobb Trophy by BRDC for achievements that year.

Andy has enjoyed a successful racing career to date with multiple victories, poles and podiums. Because racing is racing, he’s had his own fair share of challenges too. Nevertheless, Andy’s determination and drive has always brought him out on top, and he continues to do what he loves to do, which is race and coach.
