Mega start to the season - despite a horrendous build up to it - matching our personal best straight out the blocks in our very first race!

Super happy with that as the sidecar had development work over winter and now has a new swing arm and Nitron Racing Systems set up for this year’s Isle of Man TT Races but due to unforeseen circumstances we hadn’t had an opportunity to test it before now.

Great to start the season at Croft Circuit run by the brilliant North East Motorcycle Racing Club (NEMCRC) on my Costello Sidecar Racing LCR F2 sidecar with passenger Vicky Cooke in good weather and in good company too, with lots of TT sidecar racers on the grid for this event including 3 Wheeling ambassador Dave Molyneux & his new passenger Daryl Gibson.

Great images by Steve MacDonald Photography & Steve G Photos.

It’s been far from an ideal start to the year with some personal health issues being thrown in to the mix, so I haven’t been in a position to do any testing - but despite that, all the efforts in all other areas of development and all my physical training over winter Unit Fitness with my coach Tom has meant that even when life throws in extra obstacles - the work prior has still given us great foundations and a good starting point!

I want to say thank you to the NHS and huge thanks to my team of Matt & Vicky for the extra support running up to this race.

Huge thanks to all my sponsors:

That’s a wrap!

Finished off the 2021 season with a three day test at Cartagena.

So good to get some invaluable track time under my belt on the Mark Coverdale Paton SC1 and I’m so delighted to announce I’ll be competing on the Paton again in 2022.

We had fantastic weather and plenty of track time and I came away with some important data that means we can start next season in a hugely improved position.

Massive thanks to Tara and Smartfits Installations Limited for making this trip & track time possible, it means a lot to have your support!

Big thanks to all the crew on the trip, for the lifts to and from the airport, for the banter, laughs & help, MD for the spannering & Ian for the pit crewing!

Special thanks of course to Mark Coverdale for the continued use of his beautiful Paton SC1.

…for making this season possible but wow am I ready for the real deal and for road racing to be back next year. Who’s ready for some The North West 200 & Isle of Man TT Races action?

Oh & if you’re going to Cartagena check out Casa Perez - it’s just the best place to stay (how good does the pool look)!
Had the best day spinning laps on both my sidecar (with passenger Vicky Cooke) and the Paton SC1 Supertwin at Croft.

So much fun learning a new circuit (yep, I’ve never been here before 🤷🏼‍♀️) on both two & three wheels.

Big thanks to Vicky and spanner man Matt for a fab day.

Not sure the weather is going to be as kind tomorrow ☔️

A thursday thought from our Hypnotherapist and Mindset Coach Christian Baker

What are you looking forward to after lockdown?

I often talk about the benefits of taking the time to be more present, to stop worrying about the past and the future, to simply slow down and just be in the here and the now.

This really helps to re-set and re-charge the mind and the body.

Another strategy that is really effective to help shift your mindset and start thinking differently. (Which can be super helpful if you're experiencing challenging times), is to take a few moments to think about and reflect upon, all the things you're really looking forward to.

Grab a note book, a journal, or open your notes on your phone and create a list of all the things you're looking forward to doing, all the things you want to experience, all the places you want to visit.

If you could create a wish list of all the things you're looking forward to, what would yours include?

We’ve never been through anything like this in our lifetimes so this is uncharted territory. With a mum that has many underlying health issues I’m more scared for her health so I’m social distancing big time. I stopped going to the Unit Fitness a while ago and my coach has been brilliant in swapping my programming to home workouts (thank you so much) and he’s gone even further and is now offering access to a daily workout - FOR EVERYONE - so you can do at home with no equipment needed, so big shout out to - go check them out on Instagram! Motorcycle racing has had to cancel all forthcoming events but I know we’ll get back to it at some point and I’m just trying to do what I can to work towards being ready for then. My sport and fitness for it are big parts of my life and therefore big parts of my mental stability and health so I’m doing all I can to keep that in check and want to say a big thank you to Christian Baker for his support - he’s got some great online guided meditations and relaxation videos to help us in these strange times and also thanks to the brilliant Gianni Fabrizio who’s been working with me, in the background, to help with the nutrition side of things (although he provides a huge amount of emotional support too). Massive thanks to all these people and my friends and sister for being at the end of the phone or FaceTime - it makes all the difference! Please support each other and help protect those more vulnerable than ourselves!!! 📷 by Scott Chalmers Photography Styling and hair by Tricia D'Costa Luxury Hair and Makeup Designer

Wishing you an amazing December to remember!


9 years ago tonight, since I appeared on the X Factor helping one of the contestants with a form of performance anxiety.

Something I’ve helped many successful professionals with over the years, in the world of sport, business and entertainment.

Very often these individuals are at the top of their game, complete naturals at what they do and others would probably be very surprised that they even had their struggles.

But one thing they all have in common is, they are human beings, and as humans, not one of us, are immune to experiencing any kind of feelings.

But just in the same way we can train our physical body, we can train our mindset, our habits, thoughts and our feelings.

If you want to get fitter and stronger, or needed to do some rehab to recover from a physical injury, you wouldn’t give yourself a hard time for it, you’d just do it.

So, why not approach your mind fitness in the same way, approach it in a way that you can develop and enhance it and learn ways to maintain a good level of fitness that benefits you in your life.

In the same way there is an abundance of ways to get fit and keep fit physically, there isn’t a one size fits all, there any many different ways to get mind fit.

Be open to exploring what benefits you most, be consistent and keep going!

You wouldn’t go to the gym, or for a walk or run once and then expect to be, and stay in peak physical condition.

The same is true if you were choosing to develop a new habit, or learn a new skill like learning a language or playing an instrument.

You don’t pick up an instrument once and then expect to master it, you get better by consistent effort and practice.

So, if you want to change or improve anything, first make the decision to do it, commit to it and then make consistent action towards making it happen and get better as go!

If you have any questions, or you need any help making a change, or want to improve your mind fitness get in touch, I may be able
to help, or point you in the right direction.


I’m so busy, I don’t have enough time…

I hear this a lot, and it’s usually from the people who need to chill out the most.

Even when you’re busy, or in a busy environment, it’s always beneficial to take a few minutes to simply stop, just pause, breath, look up and around, come to your senses, whatever works for you, just do it regularly and notice how much better you feel.

I often walk through Cavendish Square Gardens when I’m seeing clients in central London, so you can’t get much busier than the hustle and bustle of London life, but just a few moments walking through, helps to reset and rebalance.

Where is your favourite place to get some quiet, calm time and hit the reset button?


Is it time to stop thinking and take the first step towards making it happen?

“If you spend too much time thinking about a thing, you'll never get it done.”

Words of wisdom from on what would have been his 82nd Birthday! 🎉


Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends!

Where ever you are in the world, what are you thankful for?

Why not reach out to someone today and say thank you, let them know how much you appreciate them!

Flying through the clouds the other day, reminded me of this quote from Zig Ziglar…

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

Do you agree?


A great reminder from Napoleon Hill to keep going and you can achieve your success.

“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.”

What can you do this coming week to help you towards achieving your success?

Smoke Free England 14/10/2022

Smoke Free England

I've just had a chat with someone who has been recommended to me to help them Stop Smoking. I helped their friend and their friends sister, both heavy, long term smokers.

His words were "If you can help them stop, you can help anyone!"

I was also reminded of this old video from 2007. In the build up to Smoke Free England on 1st July 2007, I was asked by ITV’s News to assist one of their viewers, in their efforts to successfully stop smoking in time for the Smoking ban.

If you want to Stop smoking, or any habit, you can!

Good luck to everyone getting their today. I’ll repeat what I shared last week on A-level results day.

I hope your hard work has paid off and you get the results you want.

But if you didn't get the results you wanted, head up, your results will not define you, or your future.

They may help pave the way for the next chapter, but they don’t determine your whole life!

If you want to achieve something enough, there is always a way. And if you don’t know what you want to do yet, then that’s ok too.

You never know what wonderful opportunities may be ahead of you, sometimes what seems like a setback, is actually a re-direction towards something amazing!

You have your whole life ahead of you, be open, look forward and enjoy whatever exciting opportunities are in front of you!
