Name: Paul Kaynes (aka Kaynesie)
Age: 47 Years Old
Home Town: Haywards Heath, West Sussex.
Kaynesie is the old man of the team at 47, but probably the most immature and childish!…… This accusation sticks easily when we tell you the worst “injury” he had racing this season gone was from falling off a table whilst dancing on it at Donington Park at the last meeting/evening of the season….. The bruises weren’t pretty, but that’s racing (sort of !!!)…
Living in Haywards Heath, West Sussex, Paul runs a banking software consultancy and is married to Lulu. They have 3 little ones, Darcy 12, and Thomas and Pippa who are 11.
2017 was Pauls “rookie” year racing on the circuits having raced on and off for a number of years on short circuit ovals in various contact and non-contact formulas. Paul has many wins and podiums on his cv from the ovals, but was both surprised and delighted to have finished 6th overall in his first Hot Hatch Championship, also winning the “Novice of the Year 2017” trophy for MACAW Motorsport.
Although the laughter and fun is important, Paul does take his racing very seriously and preparation for the 2018 car has started already with a number of upgrades being done to the car and regular winter testing happening as we speak. Close season does not mean closing down at MACAW !!!
We hope (and expect) Kaynesie will build on an impressive start to his Hot Hatch “career” in 2018 and that podium will be a busy place for our MACAW boys.
