Nick Foster Driver
Nick spent the first part of his motor racing career in rallying after he was a finalist in the 1987 Ford Sierra Rally search. In 2006 he made the switch to circuit racing as he competed in the Radical Championship.
In 2007 Nick went on to spend two years in the British GT Championship, as he drove a GT3 class Dodge Viper for Team RPM. He then took part in the GT Cup for two years.
In 2011 Nick stepped up to drive for West Surrey Racing in the British Touring Car Championship (BTCC) as he raced a BMW 320si. In his debut year he managed one podium at Croft as he finished second in race three.

Q & A
How I got into racing: I was a competition finalist in the Ford Sierra Rally search in 1987. From there I got more and more involved in the sport.
Favourite track: Croft as it is fast and scary! It is also where I achieved my first BTCC podium in 2011.
BTCC career highlight: Finishing on the podium at Croft last season was a great result for both me and the team.
Goals for the 2012 season: This year I would like to achieve regular top 10's in qualifying and push on from my debut season last year.
Race preparation: I try and swim one kilometre every day in order to improve my basic fitness. In terms of mental preparation, I plan my race weekends with the help of I Zone simulators at Silverstone. This ensures that I know the tracks inside-out which gives me an advantage going into each round.
The car I drive (off the track): A BMW M3 - but I am hoping that BMW donate an M5 this season!
Hobbies: When I am not racing I am busy organising my children's kart racing weekends, we are complete petrol heads!
The last thing I bought on eBay: Little hand warmers for skiing.
