The other passion of Alex Lloyd Sun Nov 07 Most of us can probably not really imagine the stamina it takes to race a hour race, even if driving is shared with other drivers. It was a good grounding for all sorts of motorsport but ultimately I wanted to end up on 4 wheels and I think my parents were pleased to see the back of the bikes, having had so many friends injure themselves in motocross races! With my family background in the sport I always had a passion and therefore always wanted to form a career in motor racing in one way or another. From there you jumped to carting and it seems that is the path most people take who end up as professional racecar drivers.

How competitive are you guys when you are riding together? From there you jumped to carting and it seems that is the path most people take who end up as professional racecar drivers.
What bike are you buncome riding and how many bikes do actually have floating round? Yes, I grew up supporting my father through his racing career but I actually started myself in schoolboy Motocross. Anything else we should know?
Assuming swimming was no issue and fitness was spot on, would you rather race the triathlon in the Olympics or the Ironman World Championships in Hawaii, and why? Kart racing is so close that you soon learn the important lessons of race craft!
Any chance we’ll see you competing in a triathlon? I have huge admiration for anyone who has completed a full Ironman distance and although I have such a long way to go with my swimming, it would be great to think that perhaps one day I could compete in one!

Race Calendar RD Aids. I normally manage to watch the Eurosport highlights of the days stage each evening when possible, which is really good coverage here in the UK. Is that something you always have been involved with?
He is great friends with Jenson Button who is considered to be the fastest race car driving triathlete. Race fitness really comes from driving the car but base fitness really helps with focus and of course recovery.
British Le Mans race driver Chris Buncombe is very passionate about cycling when he is not behind the steering wheel of his Aston Martin race car. Although you are now racing an Aston Martin in the Le Mans program, you actually got your start in the dirt and on two wheels.
The demands faced in an endurance race are pretty tough — normally due to cockpit temperatures and mental fatigue over a long period of time. My next race is the British Round of the Intercontinental Le Mans Cup at Silverstone early September but no doubt there will be some testing scheduled before that.
It was a good grounding for all sorts of motorsport but ultimately I wanted to end up on 4 wheels and I think my parents were pleased to see the back of the bikes, having had so many friends injure themselves in motocross races!
Running is also part of your fitness training, correct? I see any Ironman distance as an amazing challenge in itself and to qualify for Hawaii is something very special for athletes.
I ride a Specialized, I really like their products.
