Ian is the Founder of the original idea and subsequent Facebook Page startattheback.
Here is Ian in his own words talking about his creation:
“I set the group up initially to give coverage to the teams, drivers and sponsors that normally go unnoticed, across most of the tin top series from Ginetta’s VW’s and Clios up to the BTCC. Since the birth of startattheback in 2015 we’ve now spread to Karts and grass-roots Motorsports.”
Ian is a full-time member of the Fire and Rescue Service in Lincoln. His favourite driver is a pal of his, Mark Howard who drove a VW CC for Team BKR in 2016. His favourite teams are, Lincoln based PP Motorsport who are racing in the Renault Clio Cup with James Colburn leading the charge and also Tony Gilhams Team Hard Racings Lime Green and Pink squad in BTCC and various other Championships up and down the Country…
Frank has been a fan of the BTCC since the late 90’s, he keeps being told that he missed the best years of BTCC action but he begs to differ…
“The best season is always the next season! Every year the BTCC never fails on action, passion and stirs emotions I didn’t think was possible… There is no better feeling standing at the fence at Thruxton with 32 cars revving their engines and bouncing their speedo on the limit! The best adrenaline rush around!”
Frank works in retail as a Store Assistant Manager but dreams of one day making the switch to full time photography… One day!
