Son of Jody. His career took a nosedive after a run-in with the law in the UK. Then moved Stateside and into the IRL. He was a regular driver in the series, with two wins up to 2011, but scaled back his racing after Dan Wheldon's fatal accident. He tends to race only for fun now in one-off races (including Britcar recently), but mainly is now heavily nvolved in his father's organic farming business in Laverstoke Park, and subsequently, has moved back to the UK.
