Mike started his racing career at the age of 8 at Rye House in Hertfordshire. Since then, he has gone on to be
the Formula A British Karting Champion, the Formula Renault Champion (2004) and the top British driver in
the British Formula 3 Series, coming 3rd in 2005 with Fortec Motorsport.
In 2006, Mike raced in the British F3 International Series and had a phenomenal year. He dominated the
championship and won the title with three races still remaining. It was also during this year that he won the
Macau Grand Prix, becoming the first British driver to do so since 1999.
Mike moved to the GP2 Series in 2007 and spent the season racing for Super Nova Racing. He was also signed
up to Honda F1 Racing as one of their test drivers. 2008 saw Mike remain in GP2 but this time he was racing
with Trident Racing. At Monaco, he had his first 2008 podium when he took 1st place in the sprint race – a race
which he led from start to finish.
2009 was Mike’s rookie season in Indianapolis racing for Dreyer & Reinbold Racing in the Indy Racing League.
He finished the championship in 17th place and recorded one top 5 finish and three top 10 finishes. Mike
decided to stay in the US with Dreyer & Reinbold Racing for 2010 but a horrific, high-speed crash at the Indy 500
race meant he was unable to finish the rest of the season. Mike has been training hard and is now fully
recovered and ready to take on the 2011 Indycar Series with Andretti Autosport.
Mike will continue to be supported by his management company, 2mb Sports Management, which was founded
by close friends Mark Blundell and Martin Brundle but now solely owned by Mark.’
