Max has always shown an interest in bikes ever since being taken to Swindon Speedway at the age of one. He was riding a Suzuki 50cc Quad bike by the time he was just 3½ then moved onto a Yamaha PW 50cc motorbike at 4½ years old.

Max was already attending Grass track and speedway meets watching and learning. It wasn't until Max turned 5½ that he had a bespoke grass track bike built for him by a company called RTS who are based in Gloucester. He then spent the next 9 months practising and getting to know his new bike ready for racing.

Max had his 1st race in May 2013, just 2 weeks after his 6th birthday where on his debut race meet he pulled off an amazing 1st place, followed by another 1st at his next meet then a string of 2nds and 3rds leading up to the ACU British Youth Grass Track Racing Championships, where he was up against boys 2 years older and more experienced but he still managed to achieve a very respectable 4th place.

This was then followed by another 3rd and 2nd to finish his very first racing season.

For all of Max's hard work and effort he was crowned ACU South West Centre Grass Track champion 2013, followed by 2nd place in the ACU South Midlands Centre Championships and 2nd place in the Cornwall Grass Track Club Championships.

In-between all of Max's racing schedule he has also been practising on the Speedway tracks at Plymouth Devil's, Scunthorpe Scorpions and at Swindon Robins where he was allowed to ride the inside track at the beginning of a meet in front of a full crowd of home and away supporters.

In 2014 Max was crowned British Grasstrack Auto Cadet Champion where he also notched up no less than 13 wins and 1 second. Max was also attending on a regular basis Speedway training days and for the second year running allowed to ride on the junior track at the Swindon Robins.
