Phil has had a love for motorbikes from a very young age. He was raiding off-road until he could get his license in 1983 and has owned some of the fastest sports bikes over multiple decades. The need for speed took Phil to the racetrack, and he acquired his National Racing Licence at the tender age of 42. Phil Raced for Sorrymate in 2013 with our Senior Solicitor, Fergus. They were joined at various times by Jenny Tinmouth (BSB & TT), Kurt, and Matt Wigley (BSB) In 2018, Phil and the Sorrymate 600cc endurance Team achieved First Place in the ACU 8 Hour 600 Endurance Race at Donnington, where Phil averaged at 1:35.61 a lap, and 93.64mph on a Kawasaki ZX6R (127bhp)
You may have already met Phil at various motorbike shows all over the UK. Phil has been working for Sorrymate for over 12 years managing and coordinating the events team. Phil is an effortless ambassador for Sorrymate as he fully believes in getting other riders the very best help after a non-fault accident.
Phil has brought some very prestigious and honourable associations to work with us over the years, developing strong bonds with the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, Midlands, Essex & Herts, and the Great North Air Ambulance charities. Phil also spearheaded and solidified our ongoing relationship with the One Nine Four Six Marshals, MAG (Motorcycle Action Group) NABD (National Association for Disabled Bikers), creating friendships and business relations with tens of well know motorcycling companies and services.

Phil’s new baby is a Yamaha 2008 R1. Phil enjoys having no electronic rider aids on the 1000cc bike, developed with input from Valentino Rossi. Traction, brake, launch control and slipper clutch are all up to Phil as part of the ride. His pet hate: Other riders without proper riding gear, especially gloves….
