About thehairpincorner: thehairpincorner came to light during August 2015. Focused on providing on topic and relevant news and opinion from the BTCC, DTM and V8 Supercars Championships I aim to cover aspects from these incredible series from a fans perspective. My aim is not to simply “regurgitate” news from other reputable news sources but to examine what consequences the stories may have for the fans and the world of motorsport.

About the author: I’ll never forget my first ever touring car race, races 17 and 18 of the 1998 BTCC championship at Thruxton, watching Anthony Reid and Alain Menu take victory as the series ended it’s Super Touring heyday. Ever since that day I have been enthralled by motorsport and have followed it avidly for the last 18 years.

Born and raised in the UK I am now based in London alongside trying to travel to as many races as possible. My passion for motorsport has taken me all over Europe to watch BTCC, F1 and the DTM and I’m excited to be heading down to Australia for the Enduros later this year!

I’ll take this opportunity to thank you for visiting thehairpincorner and I hope it helps fuel/stoke your passion for motorsport for many years to come!
