Mark commenced his electronics and systems engineering career in the Royal Navy and subsequently, Royal Australian Navy. Working as an Aircraft Avionics Engineer for close to 20 years. Following his resignation in 2004, Mark moved into the motorsport sector. This culminated in achieving a career ambition of working in Formula 1, as a Systems Engineer for Mercedes F1 Engines, in 2010-2011.
Over the past 8 years, Mark has provided a range of electronics/systems engineering and programme management services to F1 teams and organisations. On his recent semi-retirement from the F1 sector, Mark saw the passion and vision in the Aussie Invader 5R Team, which made his decision to offer his support, an easy one to make.
