Paul is the founder of Carbon Positive Motorsport and is a lifelong motorsport enthusiast who competes both as a driver and co-driver in national level rallying. He is quite unique in having a passion for collecting genuine historic rally and race spec LADA Samaras.
Whilst with his young son watching a works group B car being driven by a world champion at a historic rally festival, Paul wondered if his son would be able to enjoy and participate in motorsport in the future. He asked himself if motorsport would suffer the same fate as GpB, due to the challenges and perception of climate change?
Reflecting on this he decided to combine his professional background in business and transformation with his passion for motorsport, and to bring his understanding of the needs to innovate in a fast-changing world to help make motorsport sustainable for future generations to enjoy, and so Carbon Positive Motorsport was conceived.
Steve is joint director of Carbon Positive Motorsport and has over 35 years of experience within the motorsport & automotive industry including working with leading teams such as Prodrive.
As founder and director of his company, The Tree Group, Steve is regularly involved in supplying products and services to many of the world’s leading motorsport companies across all motorsport disciplines.
As a highly motivated and dynamic professional, Steve relishes bringing change through innovation in motorsport and contributes a unique understanding of the commercial and marketing benefits for competitors who want to make a difference through reducing their environmental impact through competition.
