31-year-old Sam was introduced to powerboat racing in 2013 by his sister Daisy Coleman.
The Welshman made his P1 SuperStock racing debut in Hull in 2015 stepping in for the injured Vince Berridge in the Visit Wales boat, as well as fulfilling his regular team manager duties that he had been doing for Pertemps Racing for two years. In the final round at Bournemouth another, he was another stand in drive for Arthur J Gallagher came about due to injury to fellow driver Mark Moore. The opportunity offered Sam a chance to test himself in the rough weather and was delighted with a 6th and 2nd on the Saturday's racing. An unfortunate day Sunday, where we we're unable to race, cost them a real shot at the podium.
In 2016, Sam teamed up with sister Daisy in the Pertemps Network boat and they proved to be the perfect pairing by notching up an impressive points tally that saw them finish in the top three at every round to land the title in comprehensive fashion.
They then headed to India as part of the Baleno RS Boosterjets team at the inaugural P1 SuperStock World Championships where they took three wins from three to be crowned world champions.
It would be a shock not to see them atop those standings once again in 2017!
