Colin Peach took a pretty unorthodox journey into motorsport. In 2006 with no prior racing experience Colin entered a TV show “So you want to be an F1 Driver?” designed to give people a chance of racing that would normally pass them by.
The show had over 2000 budding racers enter with different levels of experience, it featured a number of rounds, testing for fitness and car control. Colin did exceptionally well progressing to the 5th round. After that round was a turning point as although he was knocked out of the competition he was offered a race seat for the rest of the 2006 season in an Historic class Lola racing car by senior Judge Tim Matthews.
Colin now competes in the "Sports 2000 Championship" and has since gone on to have many Pinto engined Class podiums, victory's and fastest laps. In 2015 Colin purchased a Van Diemen car and moved up to the Duratec Class B championship and in his first season took five 1st place finishes and two 2nd place finishes – To crown him the 2015 Class B Champion - With a round still to spare.
