Roger Slater

Driver Class: 3B

Retirement gave an opportunity to start sprinting and hill climbing and I am enjoying it to the full. Have been unable to compete due to car problems for the last couple of years but hope to be back this year.

I am also the Secretary to the Midland Speed Club.

Driver Biography

First forays into motorsport were in autotests and then rallies in the early 1970s (with the Vagabond Motor Club in Derby). Managed some success but life took over and my competition licence lay dormant for the next 40 years. I did get involved in organising a few motorsport events for the TR Register and for the Sporting Bears Motor Club but nothing serious until 2011. I bought a Striker with a bike engine and thought it was wasted on the road, so decided to compete. After lots of development and fitting a 1585cc Hayabusa engine the car was quicker than me, so have gone back to my first competition car, a Mini.
