"For any driver looking to one day make the move into the BTCC, the UK Clio Cup is a necessity. It is so competitive... doing well in it gives you massive credibility in front of teams not only in the BTCC but also further afield and the exposure for sponsors is tremendous."

Biography

  • Dan and wife Sadie spent their honeymoon as newly-weds in 2016 at Croft’s rounds of the UK Clio Cup! Their marriage, planned a year before, took place the Thursday before the event (when Dan didn’t know he’d be racing in the championship)…
  • Dan likens himself to World Rally legend Sebastien Loeb in that he seemingly can’t stop drinking espresso!
  • He’s also an avid collector of Agatha Christie novels and has 133 variations of her stories - these include 42 copies alone of the classic ‘Murder, She Said’ (aka '4.50 from Paddington'). One of Dan's ambitions is to finally see The Mousetrap on stage…
