Simpson is a two-time European Hot Rod Champion, a former runner-up on the World Championship stage and more recently a double Quaife Intermarque title-winner. The 34-year-old recently tested a Civic Type R at Donington Park, and despite enjoying the experience enormously he is under no illusions as to the huge challenge ahead.
