Simon Cole

Team Principal/ Driver

“I have a racing background, but not always on 6 wheels and 5 tons. I started racing as a teenager racing bmx’s, then endurance riding motorbike for Honda then ktm, then on to track days with Porsche 996 turbo before battling it out with the Clio’s in MSN for 2 years. After this I shared a drive at Brands Hatch in an Iveco which ended up in the hands of Jo Eason. Our current machine (#TheBeast) was purchased from Erik Forsström, a legend of the Finnish Truck Racing Championship.” AKA Big Rev

Jon David

Jon David

Leading Technician

Been on the team just over a year. I’m one of the mechanics responsible for building the Beast mk2 along with Simon and Tom. I am currently working as a hgv technician which I’ve been doing for 25 years. My role in the team is to prep the race truck, get it to the race meetings and keep it on track. Former motorcross rider and up until meeting Simon i was contesting in the British Lawn Mower Championship. I have raced 3 12hour endurance races and 1 24hr which we came 2nd in France. When im not working on the beast I can be found to answer questions and enquires to the public about the truck.

Tom 'tiny' Ray

Tom 'tiny' Ray

Leading Technician

I joined the team this year working as a HGV mechanic doing mainly 24/7 breakdown assistants. I am also one of the main mechanics on the team, turning spanners on the beast helping to make it the best it can be. I joined Si because of the passion he showed towards truck racing and the hunger he has for making an amazing truck! Mechanics and trucks is what makes me tick, I’ve got more derv and oil running in my veins than blood.
