James and Mike have known each other for over 15 years and have been dabbling in off road vehicles ever since. They have been racing together under AT Racing for the past 4 years and have now decided to take on a new adventure together in the shape of Blackbird Industries.

Mike -

Working on cars has always been Mike's passion, from fixing up his first Land Rover at age 13 to securing his dream job at Bowler Motorsport. He graduated from Harper Adams University having studied a degree in off-road vehicle design. Over the years, Mike has had some amazing mentors - including Drew Bowler - who have helped him advance his design knowledge as well as his welding and mechanical skills. 

James - 

James has been involved in off road motorsport from a young age. He began his motorsport career competing in winch challenge, Ultra 4 and Rally Raid, gaining national and international titles in several disciplines. As well as his time spent racing his own vehicles, he took on designing and building competitive vehicles both for himself and others. Alongside the racing, James was heavily involved in the management and running of his family business before making the leap into full-time business partnership with Mike.
