Committee Profile – Simon Taylor

Simon Taylor FDMC

Like most car nuts, Simon was hooked long before reaching driving age, so his first motorsport exploits involved Scalextric models!

His Alpine-Renault GTA V6 turbo, shown here, was acquired in 2004. Simon, who’s also active in the Alpine Renault Owners Club, joined FDMC in 2006, entering the GTA in sprints and hillclimbs.

With continuing development of the car, results have included class wins, and above all a lot of fun. The ‘silver bullet’ also gets used in European navigational rallies and for social purposes.

Having joined the committee as Competition Secretary in 2011, Simon was Chairman until the start of 2020, and has now reverted back to being our Comp Sec.  Here you can see Simon T (right) formally handing over to the new Chair, Simon May (left).
