Wayne has raced at circuits throughout the UK including Pembrey in Wales, Knockhill in Scotland and also at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. In 2005 he tested for the Motors TV Nurburgring 24-hour race team, in Issoire in France. During his racing career he has secured many class wins, pole positions and fastest laps. 

Wayne has always competed with British saloon and sports manufacturers and these include Austin Mini, MG Metro, MG ZR, Rover Metro GTI, Rover BRM, Jaguar XJS and Jaguar XK8. He has also driven single seaters including Crossle Formula Ford, Ralt RT3 Formula 3 and Arrows FA14 Formula 1 cars.
