Retired !
Yes, I have to retire from competitive driving.
I have a serious neurological illness believed to have been caused by a series of head injuries. Although I am now out of the hospital after a two-month stay, I am mostly confined to my home. I’m hopeful I’ll recover fully but it’s really unlikley I’ll be driving competitively again.

This has been a very difficult decision to make but it’s for the best. Huge thanks to Subaru Canada for an entire career’s worth of support, to the well-respected and hard-working posse at Rocket Rally, and to everyone involved in the sport — you guys have all made it a great ride !
Subaru Rally Team Canada and the Rocket Rally crew will most definitely be at Rallye Defi; though I won’t be driving I’m still involved with the team and I’ll be supporting them from a distance.
I hope to get to a rally soon to start my new career as most annoying know-it-all service crew guy ever.




We wish him the best and hope he makes a full recovery.
