Driver info : Rob Nichols


Rob had a misspent youth involving everything boating, growing up in sunny Pembrokeshire, including waterskiing, surfing, wakeboarding, windsufing, kite boarding and jetskiing. Prior to this new adventure he had a keen passion for downhill mountain biking and thrives on scaring himself and finding the next adrenaline boost. No stranger to racing Rob is out to win and win Rob did in 2014.  A fabulous season saw Rob's as a Driver & the team placed 7th in the RYA National Championships.  Well done an amazing first season, roll on 2015.

Co-drivers info : Jon Puttick, hannah legg & laurence rew


Both Jon & Hannah carried out their training early in the season and decided to share the co-driver commitments.  Hannah is a paramedic (as is Rob) and work schedules can be very difficult to juggle.


Jon was co-driver with Rob at the first events.  Jon is based on the South Coast near Chichester and loves all things sporty! From long distance running to climbing, kitesurfing and mountain biking. Having always lived by the sea loving sailing and powerboats Joining ThunderCats seemed the next logical step!


Rob then raced with Hannah and we saw some spectacular racing, they certainly worked well together.  


At the final event at Fistral Beach, Laurence joined Rob and fantastic surf saw them as a team achieve amazing results. 

Racing experience


2014 was Rob, Jon & Hannah's first season of racing with ThunderCat's. They were all very keen to be competitive and enjoy the racing. Already we have found It’s a great atmosphere and everybody has been so keen to help and share knowledge! Brilliant group of people involved in the racing. 


Team 35 are actively seeking sponsors to help them be able to race in 2015.
