In 2004 he moved to the Uel Duncan Racing team, staying with them until 2005. In this series, he creates four-speed based challenges, exploring the boundaries of physics, learning about the science of speed, and getting his hands dirty in a range of unique engineering projects. He heads to Southampton University where, on 9 November 1961, Derek Piggot became the first man to fly under his own power.

He begins by learning how to fly a glider with stunt pilot Guy Westgate. He found all to be a disappointment or unsuitable in one way or another, being particularly unimpressed with the Vantage, which had been his dream car, but which he found ostentatious, ultimately selling it cheaply, although he had not driven it in 2011 due to the insurance cost, as a result of his speeding points.
