Tim started his career back in the eighties when he competed in the NZ Formula Ford and South Island Sports Car championships.
He then moved to the UK where he worked with teams competing in Formula 3, Formula Renault and the BTCC (British Touring Car Championship). In the five years he was in the UK, the teams Tim worked for secured three championship victories.

With credentials like 2016 GT3CC Elite champion and runner-up in the 2017 AGT Endurance championship Tim joined Carrera Cup in 2018 for his first Pro Am campaign wining two of the biggest rounds of the year, AGP and Bathurst. 2021 will be Tim's eighth season with MR and he will certainly be one of the favourites for the Pro-Am title.
What are your top 3 career highlights so far?
Have you raced in any other events or categories?
I have been involved in motorsport for as long as I can remember. My father was a founder of the Ashburton Car Club and mate of Andy McElrea's dad Rod. This is where Andy and I met and my first car racing event was driving a Mk 1 Cortina in a hill climb at the age of 15.
I competed in NZ until I was 20 and then left for the UK. In the UK I worked in British F3 and the BTCC and was involved in 3 championship victories (2 in F3 with JJ Lehto and David Brabham and 1 in the BTCC with Will Hoy).
Since returning to Australia I have been involved as a founder and co-owner of V8 Supercar team Tasman Motorsport and am currently a part owner of Triple Eight Race Engineering.
I returned to driving in 2012 doing 4 races in Aussie Race Cars and 2016 will be my third full season of GT3 Cup Challenge.
