Started racing in Miami driving a VW Golf GTI in autocrosses and at drag races at Moroso Speedway in 1992-93.
Moved on to racing in Jamaica in 1994, driving an Opel Corsa GTE.
Entered his first Dover event that year winning Group 1 class and in 1995 winning the overall Group 1. Acquired his first Mitsubishi, a four wheel drive Colt RS that same year.
After many class wins in the Colt RS, upgraded to a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution II to take on the big boys from Kingston.
The first event entered was a single day stages rally at a track his own racing team was instrumental in building, Mobay Raceway, placing second (2nd) overall and first in class.
Many class and overall wins followed in the 1996 season at Dover and a tie with David Summerbell Sr. for the overall championship was the end result.
The next car in line was a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI, Group A spec out of Japan, sponsored by Motor Sales & Service Ltd, Sherwin Williams Paints, Richard James Assc., Bridgestone Tires, Walkerswood Foods and Baycourt Pharmacy.
In 2003, Doug acquired an Evolution VIII prepared by Plaza Autosport of Japan. He won 2 sprint events, four races at Dover and two major rallies (Frome and Petcom Invitational rally), thus winning the Jamaica Millennium Motoring Club’s Rally Championship.
2004 was Doug’s finest year, winning a total of seven events; four rallies and three sprints, winning six events in a row, a first for a Jamaican rally driver! He and co driver Mark Nelson are also the winningest rally team in Jamaica with a total of Seventeen (17) and one international rally win (Rally Mexico) to their credit to date.
