Peter started racing in 2013, running a GT3 Cup car in the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge. This debut was after nearly ten years of running various specification Cup Cars on track days. Having proved he was no stranger to getting behind the wheel of a race car, the natural progression was to begin racing. Having taken the plunge he has gone from strength to strength, taking a win in his first year. In 2014 he graduated to the Porsche Carrera Cup GB with the awesome new 991-type GT3 Cup car. After a season long battle with title rival Steve Liquorish Peter would finish as vice champion having taken it right down to the wire.
Peter entered 2015 with high hopes for champinohip glory. Unfortunately he was taken out of the first race, with the damage to his car ruling him out of the second race. After two solid points finishes at the WEC-supporting races at Spa-Francorchamps Peter was agian taken out of race five when he was hit and ptched into a spectacular role. With his champinosh aspirations in tatters Peter decided to sit out the remainder of the season. He returns for 2016 hoping to dispell the ghosts of his 2015 season and once agian challenge for ProAm2 honours.
