“Michael joined Tooley Motorsport in 2012 and remained with us for the next four seasons, starting in Cadets and on into the Mini Max and Junior Rotax classes, all in the British Super One Championship and selected Club races as his budget allowed. At At British Championship level all the drivers are quick and Michael was no exception, as his speed was always good enough to win. At a level of competition where most of the drivers are competing almost every weekend, the pace at which Michael was gaining race craft experience was limited due to the restricted number of race weekends weekends he was able to come down and do with us. We have absolutely no doubt that without these restrictions on him, he would have gained many more race wins and a Championship with us. The raw talent was evident for all to see from the start. We never ceased to be impressed by the commitment from Michael and his family to regularly make the long journeys down from Scotland, to compete at the top level. It was also Michael’s manner, and that smile that is never far away, even through some tough times on and off the track, that also left a lasting mark with us. The professional professional way Michael goes about his racing will stand him in good stead, as his undeniable talent takes him up the racing ladder, and we will be following his progress with keen interest. All of us here at Tooley Motorsport wish him the very best for future success.”

“I first met Michael a couple of years ago at a Scottish “Go Motorsport” event in Edinburgh. The fact that he had persuaded his Dad to drive him 100 plus miles to a motorsport promotion evening impressed, and secondly there was no way this young lad was not going to be a success, at least in his eyes. Right away he had my attention with his presentation as a forceful, polite, articulate and ambitious twelve year old. He was going nowhere until I heard him out. What was more important, I wanted to hear him out! His His story of his motorsport history was balanced in describing his failures and success. Not a long monologue of “If I only had the budget I could have achieved so much more.” Well we’ve heard that story so many times and it’s a big turn off in all honesty. I can’t wait to see him compete in a car, where we will be keeping a close eye on him. He will be a great asset to our future Scottish motorsport arsenal, he is exactly the sort of young talent we are looking for and need to promote.”

“Michael is a talented young driver that I was first made aware of in his early karting days. At that time he was proving to be very successful on the Scottish karting scene and I took a keen interest in him as he moved up to compete in the British Championships throughout the UK. Whilst Whilst Michael’s speed was obvious, as he moved up the various karting classes, it was the way in which he conducted himself around his peers and the paddock in general that really impressed me. His constant smile and personality, along with the mannerly and professional way he goes about his racing, really grab peoples attention. As a team we had been looking forward to a time when Michael would move out of karting and up into car racing with us at Graham Brunton Racing. And for 2016 we had Michael out testing in one of our Ray GR15 Formula Ford 1600 racing cars. He was impressive from the off with his speed, his technical feedback and in general with his approach proach and the ease in which he adapted to driving these racing cars. Michael had a superb first year racing with ourselves in 2017 in the Scottish Formula Ford Championship, culminating in a fantastic debut in the Brands Hatch Formula Ford Festival at the end of the year. It was unfortunate that funding forced him to sit out most of the 2018 season. However now as he moves on and up into the National Championship he will continue to be an exciting young prospect for the future, a very promotable young man and I believe he would be a huge asset to any Company considering motorsport as a platform to increase its profile and brand awareness.”

“Michael was brought to my attention by one of our regular team drivers as being a driver that would fit in well within our team structure. I I had the opportunity to observe him driving at the Formula Ford Festival in October 2018 and his speed and smooth driving style were very evident. I made a point of arranging to meet Michael that weekend and knew within minutes of talking with him that I wanted to get him out on track in one of our Spectrum cars for a test day. This we managed in November at a Champion of Brands race weekend and after finishing P3 on his debut with KMR it became a priority for us to keep Michael with us into 2019. Further testing in December at a wet Silverstone only further confirmed to us that Michael will quickly prove himself to be one of the front runners in the 2019 National FF1600 Championship. We are delighted to have Michael in the KMR team for 2019 and are looking forward to an exciting year with him.”
