31-year-old Sam was introduced to powerboat racing in 2013 by his sister Daisy Coleman, who will sit alongside him when he completes his first full race season, this year.
The Welshman made his P1 SuperStock racing debut in Hull last year, 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.
Sam: "We're siblings'.and as all brothers and sisters do we do have the odd 'disagreement'. Our comms will be interesting to say the least this season but we get on really well off the track and are good friends. Most new teams take a good year to gel with one another; we have the advantage that we'll be one step ahead and able to second guess each other quicker than most."
As reigning P1 SuperStock UK champions, Sam and Daisy will be one of the favourites at the NEXA P1 Powerboat Indian Grand Prix of the Seas.
Keep an eye on them!
