Joined No Limits: 2001
Bikes: BMW S1000rr, Honda CBR600rr, Honda CB500 and a KTM 250EXCF for off-road
Biking history: 'After a couple of bikes whilst a teenager, I returned to biking 20 years later as a born-again biker in 2000. I needed training and found Mark Neate in Yellow Pages, quickly succumbed to his legendary charms and a week later I was on the training ground as trainee CBT instructor. Mark then introduced me to track days and in 2001, he asked me to become a No Limits instructor. I raced for several years including the CB500 cup, 250's and 600's.'
Best Biking Moment: 'negotiating with Sito Pons at Aragon to insist his Moto2 riders Axel Pons and Aleix Espagaro did the sighting laps and have them follow me for 2 laps'
Worst Biking Moment: ''hitting the pit wall at Portimao on the first day, first session, first lap, after a 400m, 140mph tank slapper in the pouring rain''
Favorite Circuit:'Cadwell, Jerez, Le Mans, Aragon, Portimao, Oulton and Donington'
Favorite rider: Casey Stoney and Steve Hislop
John says: 'I enjoy helping riders of all abilities to improve their skills - I get a buzz from helping the complete novice on his first ever track day through to trying to help experienced riders to ride smoother, safer and hopefully faster'
