Who we are

Sam Collins

Sam CollinsSam grew up in South London within sight of the long abandoned Crystal Palace race circuit, yet found himself on work experience in the loom shop at Williams F1 aged 16. He has been heavily involved in the sport ever since, having gained a National Diploma in Motorsport Engineering from East Surrey College (where he also built and raced a Group N Ford Fiesta) and studied Automotive Engineering at Oxford Brookes University.

He has written for Racecar Engineering, Motorsport News, Autosport, Model Collector, Speed TV, 750 Bulletin and a number of others. He has also written a number of books including Autodrome and Speedway, documenting some of the world's iconic abandoned race circuits.

As a driver Sam has competed in stockcar racing, Formula Vee, stage and road rallying as well as many local events. He still competes occasionally in the European Late Model Series. You'll also hear him from time to time on Radio Le Mans, particularly providing expert analysis of the Japanese Super GT championships.

 

Neil Tipton

Neil TiptonNeil is a trained journalist and web development professional whose passion for motorsport first grew while watching flame-spitting Sierra Cosworths charge around in the British Touring Car Championship as a teenager. This quicky developed into a minor obsession with anything going fast on two or four wheels (and occasionally three or six!).

Frustrated that it was difficult to follow a race without knowing which way the course would turn next, in the 1990s Neil set out to find what information was available on circuit layouts to help the casual enthusiast. Finding that there was actually very little, he set up the e-Tracks website and set about collating as much as he could about active and historic circuits. Quickly this attracted a world following and became a respected reference site for enthusiasts.

In 2014, Neil re-launched the website as RacingCircuits.info, with a brand new design and even more comprehensive information about the world's active race tracks.  As a consequence, Neil is never far from his computer screen but when he does emerge blinking into the sunlight, he enjoys trips to his local circuits of Silverstone, Donington Park and (his personal favourite) Oulton Park.
